What we do:

Sapling Data creates cloud-based data solutions for the healthcare and legal industries.  Using our advanced business intelligence platform, we create targeted information consoles for the attorney or compliance professional for massive-scale data integration, exploration, and visualization at a fraction of the time and effort of traditional approaches.  Our solutions include:

Healthcare Compliance Solutions:

    • Compliance Cloud – For anti-fraud, anti-kickback compliance monitoring, Compliance Cloud provides integrated dashboards, alerts, and reports for real-time monitoring of transactions between healthcare manufacturers and healthcare providers.
    • Transparency Reporting – Integrate, clean, and submit transactional data for annual Sunshine Act reporting to federal, state, and international government requirements.

Legal Data Solutions:

    • Data Forensics – Ingest, manipulate, and visualize structured case data to minimize exposure and reduce risk.  Our platform is like an eDiscovery tool for structured enterprise databases.  
    • Digital Solutions – With our tools, law firms can create custom legal workflow and data visualization applications to serve unique client opportunities.

Power through the Platform

Powered by our open data platform, Loki, our team of experts can quickly integrate your data from many different sources and spin up dashboards and visualizations quickly.  With Loki’s built-in auto-modeling engine, we can access the data directly from the front-end to build custom views and reports – or you can too!  With some basic scripting knowledge, you are free to create and extend dashboards to get the most out of your data.  All delivered through a SaaS application that leverages the scalability and performance of the cloud in a secure, personalized environment.
