Fluent, the premier dental insights company delivering customized, actionable business intelligence to support a variety of dental stakeholder objectives, announced that data from Fluent was included in a new report from the National Association of Dental Plans (NADP) titled “2022 Benefits Utilization Trends.”
The report, published annually, examines benefit utilization trends. This year’s report introduces a breakdown of the number of procedures per 1,000 enrollees in each period, quarter, and calendar year as a measure of enrollee use of dental benefits. Additionally, Fluent provided supplemental data for the first time, presenting a mix of procedures by type and coverage tier for each state. The supplemental data is sourced from Fluent’s industry-leading DentaBase®, which contains over 5 billion dental procedures and continues to grow at a rate of over 1 million dental procedures per day. DentaBase encompasses data on nearly 100% of actively practicing dentists in the U.S. Tim Downey, Fluent’s Chief Analytics Officer, served as a consultant for the report, marking the beginning of an ongoing data collaboration between Fluent and the NADP.
Paul T. Sheils, CEO of Fluent, expressed his enthusiasm for the new partnership, stating, “We are excited about this brand-new partnership between Fluent and the NADP, and we take pride in the clarity that our data will bring to this important report, which showcases past, present, and future trends in benefits utilization. We believe dental insurance payer organizations will find significant value in the report enhanced with Fluent’s data.”
“NADP is delighted to provide our members with additional market insights made possible through Fluent’s data contributions, and we are pleased to partner with Fluent,” added Mike Adelberg, executive director of NADP
