Who is Typhoon Data?

Ask anyone on the street, “Who or what is Typhoon Data ” and they’ll most likely give you the same answer. “Some kind of tropical storm, right?” Well they’re not wrong, but not exactly right either. Typhoon Data is “…an organization who aims to help any company who employs  healthcare workers make sure that they are in compliance with state and federal laws of regulation..” -Questin Francis, CEO of Typhoon Data. Basically, we make sure the providers that they hire, are clean and pose little threat to the public.

This might come to a surprise, but some healthcare providers don’t always tell the truth. “You want to know about your health care providers. You want to know about their past and you can’t always trust them to tell the truth, so you need people like us to dig a little deeper and see what is going on.”  -Cassidy Cooper, Customer Experience Manager. You want to know if your doctor has any stipulations or past disciplinary actions taken against them. When these Healthcare providers slip between the cracks and are allowed to continue working, it risks the general public. Now before you run for the hills as society seems to be collapsing around you after this revelation, there’s no need to worry. While these healthcare providers might have actions against them, it’s all recorded somewhere on official databases, emphasis on somewhere. There’s a lot of data, and it’s not easily accessible. That’s where we come in. We have built a system that technology assists hand in hand with human work so that there’s less potential for that human error to occur. With faster turn around and fewer errors, we are able to find these individuals and bring their misconduct to light.

While there are other companies like Typhoon Data that do a similar job; we by far outpace the competition. “You go from these other providers who do similar work, their processes are just not as well done, so their turnaround time and their possibility of errors are significantly worse. Instead of turning around a verification that requires humanized quality control in about two to three days, about 8-10 hours business wise, they’re turning around in a couple of weeks. They are slower…there’s just a lot more potential for human error. It also helps that the customer portals that we provide for our larger customers such as Bryce and T-Bone, are more user friendly as well.” -Derek Jackson, Infrastructure Administrator. Basically we process the data faster, which tends to be more accurate as there’s less potential for human error, and the overall experience is more friendly because the interface is more user friendly.

Our future is bright. With more and more clients looking for a trustworthy compliance data provider, and with the unfortunate reality that Healthcare Provider malpractice continues to be rampant, there’s a lot of work to be done. there’s a lot of places that we need to reach, a lot of new ways to solve problems. “…another core part of typhoon data, [is] to not only solve those problems but to solve them in a more efficient, more technologically savvy and integrated way.” Questin Francis, CEO.

So what is Typhoon Data? Some kind of tropical storm, right? 😉
