Hierarchy Management

Several Network features can be used to help you understand and explore HCP and HCO relationships.

Visualize hierarchies

  • Network Explorer

    Network Explorer enables you to easily and graphically view relationships between entities to help you understand where they fit among organizations.

  • Hierarchy Explorer

    Use this Network widget to explore entire top-level HCOs from a top-down approach. All levels of the HCO display so you can visualize the hierarchy and you can search through it to find new targets.

Report on hierarchies

  • Flat hierarchy reporting

    Report on relationship hierarchies using the flat_hierarchy table in Network reports. The table updates hierarchies once a day and displays all of the relationships and levels so you can see how HCPs and HCOs rollup to HCOs.
