IQVIA has significantly expanded its coverage of dentists and dental organizations within its OneKey reference database. OneKey now includes detailed profiles for 250,748 dentists and 88,890 dental organizations. The data was sourced from Healthcare Data Solutions and SK&A, both IQVIA legacy companies, as well as the American Dental Association.
Data attributes in the enhanced file include practice name, provider name, provider role, address, phone, state license, NPI number, ADA number, office size, affiliation to parent organization, email address, and other fields.
As part of its methodology for determining ownership and affiliation, IQVIA has identified the leading provider organization in the dental industry. According to the chart below, Pacific Dental Services is the largest provider group with 2,564 dentists in 847 offices.
“In 2020 we will be reviewing the list of corporate parents that own dental facilities and append any records that may be missing,” said Shauntell Kelly, IQVIA product manager. “We will continue to review and update each dental medical group throughout the year.”
