When Clare Lynch joined Oscar Health as a product analyst in 2017, Periscope Data was the brand new, shiny tool she got to start off with. Prior to that, the team had been using a whole mix of tools to analyze and share insights about user engagement across the company.

With Periscope Data on board, data scientists at Oscar Health began putting together evergreen dashboards to give their leadership team visibility into the core metrics they tracked across the business. With all their data together in one place, and access to changes to that data available in real-time, they have now expanded their use of Periscope Data to solve a number of other business problems.

"Having solved some of our basic outstanding reporting needs, we're now moving on to try to answer much more complex questions about our membership and about our usage," says Lynch. "The rate that Periscope Data has been pushing out new features has been totally helpful in this regard. Not only are we able to do those really simple, intuitive dashboard reports, but they've pushed out all sorts of new features: you can now integrate with R and Python and do scripting right off the bat, inside the tool. The amount of innovation and the speed at which they are launching new features makes it an incredibly powerful tool for us to use as we are trying to ramp up our understanding of complex behavior patterns."

"With Periscope Data, we are able to take someone who has a basic knowledge of SQL, and have them spin up a dashboard for a feature that they launch, or a test that they are running," says Alessandro Cetera, Growth Marketing Manager at Oscar Health. "It's a democratization of data that allows those who aren't data scientists to plug in and understand how they are making an impact. And more importantly, we can take those insights and showcase them to the broader company."
