NetMinder Snapshots and Reports: Something for Everyone

Posted by Laura McMullen on Thu, Feb 27, 2014

When I’m talking to new NetMinder users, they ask when to use the different reports. This blog post compares NetMinder Snapshots to standard NetMinder reports.

We recently launched Snapshots to give users a quick way to compare all of the networks in their subscriptions at the same time and to give insight into where one network ranks in a market against all networks in our database, even the ones that aren’t in your subscription.

To run a Snapshot, users make just three selections:
  • a geographic area
  • counting method
  • whether to compare to the networks in their subscription or to the market at-large

Snapshots, which run with just a few clicks on a single screen, work well as a complement to standard NetMinder reports, which give users more flexibility to include multiple geographic areas, choose which specialties and/or networks to include or exclude, and choose between summary counts and detailed lists.

In general, use Snapshots for high‐level overviews of provider counts and metrics in a particular area and use Standard Reports for more detailed information. Here are some examples:
