The Story Behind RTMD
Founded in 2002 in Birmingham, Alabama, RealTime Medicare Data’s core mission is to provide comprehensive, non-modeled, timely Medicare claims data that allows hospitals to develop and support strategic business initiatives.
RTMD recognizes that healthcare administrators too often make decisions from incomplete, modeled, or out-of-date data. In order to help remedy this situation, we have established a first-to-market expertise and a working relationship with CMS. We understand data will drive decisions in the future. It’s about value, not volume—accurate and transparent data will fairly position you for the future.
Our data was initially sold to hospitals throughout Alabama, where we attained an approximately 85% share of the major hospitals in the state. Our data coverage gradually expanded to other contiguous states to ensure that all hospitals, particularly in border areas, could see the full extent of their market. With the future in mind, additional states will be requested until a full national database is complete.
In addition to hospitals, RTMD is currently working with cardiology groups, pharmaceutical companies, and other organizations to provide data expertise for all corners of the healthcare field.
