Networks are a grouping of NPIs or providers. Create a network to better understand the key metrics of providers in your existing network and evaluate performance. You can also use this tool to create prospective networks to see how a potential network may look if you add and remove certain providers.
Preparation - Before building a network, you may want to gather the Names or NPIs of providers you’d like to add and markets (states) the network spans.
