About Us

Monocle Health Data represents the next generation of healthcare price and quality comparisons, integrating price and quality to create a comprehensive, easy-to-use tool for ranking providers.

The company was founded by Michael Cadger, a visionary executive with 30+ years of experience in the healthcare financial field. Mike has a passion for making the complex healthcare purchasing process simple. He developed the first U.S. Centers of Excellence, custom-designed PPOs and EPOs as well as the first high deductible health plans. In addition, Cadger is a former PwC Partner, hospital CFO, and insurer CEO and CFO.

Using a proprietary platform, Monocle developed unique algorithms for ranking providers. The company validates its findings by using multiple databases, including public, semi-public and private sources.

Monocle is uniquely independent, allowing the company to provide totally unbiased, comparative provider data. Monocle isn't owned or controlled by insurers or providers. Monocle is also the only company providing a rankings solution that covers individual procedures as well as the total annual cost of treating chronic illnesses.

Strongly committed to reducing costs for both consumers and employers, Monocle Health sets a new standard for health rankings that are credible, meaningful, unbiased and measurable.
