Comparison lists allow you to create groups of providers that you can save for later use. Locations where you can use these groups are listed below after we show how to create a list.
At this time you will not be able to create or use comparison lists for physicians or facilities (hospitals and SNFs). Comparison lists are only available for the agency type of the associated Marketscape line of business, e.g. SNFs in Marketscape for SNF.
How to Create a Comparison List
Step One: Select your agencies
On the agency Explore page, click on the checkboxes next to the agencies you want to add to the list.
Step Two: Open Add to Comparison List
Click on the comparison icon
This will open the following dialog box:
Step Three: Create or select a comparison List
Click on the field beneath Comparison List
When the selection opens, click on Create New List
If you have an existing comparison list, it will appear in this list and you can select it to add your selected providers to that list.
Step Four: Name your new comparison list
Fill in the fields with a name you want and a description. For this example, we have created a comparison list for agencies in Montgomery county, PA.
When you have filled in the fields, click Save.
Step Five: Choose what to add
Now you choose what to add. There are two options
Use Selected NPIs - This will add the providers you selected at the beginning.
Select Top X NPIs - allows you to choose to add the top X number of entries listed in the table.
The second option would be used if you had filtered and sorted the table so the best choices for your group are at the top of the table.
Finally, click Add.
Your list is created.
Where to use your list
Once you have created your list, you can use it in the following ways.
In My Lists you can open your comparison list to view your list of providers.
If you click on Select Saved Filters you will be able to select your comparison list and the table will be limited to the providers in your list.
