Success in today’s dynamic health care marketplace requires informatics tools that help identify opportunities for improvement based on meaningful and actionable information and enable provider organizations and Harvard Pilgrim to collaborate to create meaningful change strategies. Harvard Pilgrim invests in data and tools to improve the ability of our provider partners to provide high quality, cost effective, patient centered care.

Harvard Pilgrim’sProvider eBusiness team will establish an HPHConnect account for any user requesting access to structured report outputs (see User Access Management section). Once the account is established, you’ll receive a secure email with the account name and a temporary password. The account name is then entered into the relevant security tables to establish access rights to the requested reports.
