What Is HDA Data Delivery?
Healthcare Data Analytics’ hospital pricing data delivery service is a no-frills way to get access to the pricing data you care about – whether that’s by facility, by region, or by CPT / HCPCS code.
Data delivery is the simplest, lowest-cost way to receive our hospital pricing data. You receive data on a regular schedule in a standard data file (.csv, .json, etc.). You can also choose to receive data via API.
How Does Data Delivery Work?
You can use the hospital pricing data you receive to power internal functions or to customer-facing applications (e.g., by processing and ingesting the file to fuel a price comparison tool).
Unlike our dashboards and spreadsheets, direct data delivery does not include data visualizations. Rather, it offers bare-bones access to the data itself, most useful to organizations with internal data analytics teams who have the bandwidth to manipulate and process the data.
What’s important to note, however, is that there is no difference in the data itself whether you access it via dashboard, spreadsheet, or direct data delivery. Organizations can rely on this data to…
- Drive payer negotiations.
- Monitor prices at a specific hospital or in a specific geographical region.
- Monitor prices for specific CPT / HCPCS codes.
- Build custom reports.
- Power proprietary processes or applications.
Augmenting Data Delivery with Visualizations, Analytics, and Insights
Every organization’s needs are slightly different. To accommodate yours, we can supplement data delivery with helpful add-ons. For example, if your in-house data analytics team doesn’t have time to create data visualizations for business users, we can provide them. We can also supplement data with analytics and insights.

Data Delivery Rates
Data delivery fees depend on the amount and complexity of the data you want to track. Rates increase as you track more facilities and as the complexity of your needs increases (e.g., if you choose to receive data via API).
Adding visualizations and analytics, for example, would increase your monthly cost.
Our data delivery service is a more affordable option than our spreadsheets or our dashboards.
