Frequently Asked Questions

How We Keep Your Data Private and Secure

Part of what makes GPN different is our dedication to keeping your data – ALL of your data – private. Here are some common questions we get about that.

Do you use my data for data insights?

All data is anonymized and aggregated before it can be included in our data research. That means we remove all private information, and we never identify any location, practice, or patient in any research project.

Then we randomly select locations for data projects. For example, the EDGERanks semi-annual reports and our recent COVID studies used about 3,000 locations.

Do you share my patient information with third-party companies?

Removing patient’s identifiable information is the first step we take when we collect data from any practice. Our EDGEPro users will tell you – they can’t even see their own patient’s names or PII. That sensitive information never makes it into our database, so we can never share it – not even accidentally.

Will anyone know which information comes from my practice?

Your practice – or anyone else’s – will never be identified as part of any data sampling. All practice information is completely removed before data is included in our market research. 

Is my data really secure?

Your data security really is important to us, and we work hard to be transparent about how we achieve that goal. Our security whitepaper has more details about the steps we take to protect your practice data.
