Adeptus Health NSite Market Planning Engine

Our proprietary market planning engine is comprised of complex predictive analytical algorithms driven by various sources of technology and data.

Adeptus identifies the most relevant traffic generators that draw consumers from local or distant markets, whether consumers drive by a site during their morning commute, or travel to a retail area for daily needs.

Auto Traffic Counts

Adeptus utilizes data drawn from multiple proprietary sources to analyze vehicle traffic near potential sites. Traffic count data records the number and times that vehicles passing selected locations, providing a gauge of activity in the area, and identifying daily or weekly patterns. These indicators inform Adeptus’ evaluation of accessibility and traffic patterns around potential facility sites.

Quality ratings from the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), American Hospital Association (AHA), Center for Disease Control (CDC) in conjunction with online reviews and word-of-mouth industry referrals help Adeptus identify potentially underserved areas for healthcare services.

Competitor Service Areas

Competitor locations are identified alongside variables such as market demographics and accessibility of road networks to develop competitor service area maps.
