Filter affiliations in Network Explorer


You can create and save filters to use to refine the affiliations on the Network Explorer canvas. For example, if you are interested in HCOs that specialize in pediatric internal medicine, create a filter that highlights only those HCOs on the Network Explorer canvas. After you apply a filter, Network Explorer applies it for any entity until the filter is removed. This helps users to easily find the entities that match their criteria.

A blue Filter icon indicates that a filter is currently applied to Network Explorer.

Note: When filters are applied, editing is not available in the Network Explorer canvas.

  1. On the Network Explorer canvas, click the Filter icon .
  2. In the Saved Filters dialog box, click + Add Filter.
  3. Define the Conditions for the filter. You can filter on entities, addresses, licenses, and external keys.
  4. Expand the Status drop-down list to select a field. The available fields are defined by your filter selection. Scroll through the list or use the search box to quickly find a field.
  5. Select an operator (Equals, Find, Greater Than, Less Than, Between, In, Is Null, Is Not Null) from the second drop-down list. Note that this list changes depending on the field you select.
  6. Select a value from the third drop-down list. Note that if you selected a date field in the first -down list, a date picker appears next to the list.
  7. To refine the filter further, click + to add more filter rows, click x to remove a filter row, and use the handle to reorder the filter rows.
  8. Use the AND and OR operators to include additional conditions on a filter.
