Buxton’s Industry Site Score Models

Industry Site Score Model

Empower your healthcare organization to assess potential for service lines and facility types at selected locations.

An industry site score model is one of the five primary types of site selection models that Buxton provides. These pre-built models are currently available for a growing list of service lines and facility types in the healthcare industry.  

Like our traditional enhanced industry site score models, the industry site score models use variables selected based on Buxton’s analytical and healthcare industry expertise. However, your actual patient data is not integrated into the model – reducing the need for a data transfer or model development process. These models are based on variables that fall into three categories: patient value, competition, and area draw. 

Because these models are pre-built, they can typically be configured in your SCOUT application within a few days.  

Output & Utilization

The industry site score model is deployed to SCOUT for on-demand access. When you use the model to score a site, the model generates a site score report. Each report will show you the site’s overall benchmark score, model variable scores, and the minimum and maximum scores of sites used in the benchmark analysis so you can better understand the site’s real potential. A score above 100 means that the site is better than average.  

Data Requirements

Buxton provides: Competitor locations, healthcare supply and demand data for the relevant service line/facility type, typical consumer profile, area draw variables, and other variables selected based on industry experience
