Market Brief

Stratasan’s Market Brief is a comprehensive look at your REAL service areas.

What do we mean by “real”?  Our first step is to bring in your de-identified patient transaction data. We then clean the file from bad addresses and geo-code your patients for you. This will give you what may be the very first look at your real Primary, Secondary, and Extended Service areas.
