New Service Facilitates Rapid Regional Analysis and Benchmarking at a Fraction of the Cost

"Public Insight is a solution for a wide-variety of stakeholders who need rapid access to data carefully curated and prepared for immediate consumption" says Bonny McClain, healthcare "datapreneur".

Public Insight, an analytics platform that transforms public and licensed data into actionable insights, today announced the immediate availability of its Data-as-a-Service platform, which facilitates rapid benchmarking and regional market analysis through simple, but powerful on-demand data extraction across disparate public and licensed data providers.

The new extraction tools included as part of the service rapidly blend any disparate data sources into curated databases that can be immediately analyzed in business intelligence tools like Tableau® and Microsoft® Power BI. The tools are available to Public Insight registered users for free, with data extracts priced on a per-1,000 basis providing immediate accessibility to billions of data points from disparate population data sources such as U.S. Census, American Community Survey, Bureau of Labor Statistics, and Centers for Disease Control, as well as benchmark data covering hospitals, nursing homes, and colleges. In addition, Public Insight is developing strategic partnerships with data suppliers to make data available to a broader market at a fraction of the full database cost.

The new service dramatically reduces the time required to extract, transform, and load databases from across the silos of data providers, even to those without data expertise. “The Public Insight service is a solution for a wide-variety of stakeholders who need rapid access to data carefully curated and prepared for immediate consumption,” said Bonny McClain, healthcare “datapreneur” and moderator of the Tableau® healthcare analytics subgroup. “Speaking as a digital media company (Data & Donuts) and real-world analytics professional, data access should be available to all, not just those with data scientists and large budgets”, adds McClain.

“Data should be available on a usage basis the way any other service is purchased”, said Dan Quigg, CEO of Public Insight. “This new service makes complex data instantly consumable and affordable to a much larger cross-section of analysts”, adds Quigg.
