Research Strategy:

Strategy 1:
Our initial strategy was to search for existing information on the number of patients held by providers in California offering pre-natal and post-natal care services. We explored multiple medical and statistical sites such as Statista and the County Health Rankings Medical Board of California. Though we discovered the number of patients, there was no mention of those with prenatal care or post-natal care.

Strategy 2:
Our next strategy was to search for alternative data points to help satisfy the request. We explored news articles, press releases, industry reports, and studies from credible sources such as CNBC News, CNN, Pew Research, and People's World, but found no information that could assist us in ranking the five largest providers. The information obtained included the types of care under maternity and views on pre-natal and post-partum care.

Strategy 3:
In our third strategy, we searched through the financial statements and annual reports of various providers in California, including Health Net, Molina Healthcare, Dignity Health, and Stanford Hospital & Clinics, among others. However, it was not possible to determine the number of patients under their post and pre-natal covers. The information we found concerned the providers' revenues.

After exploring multiple strategies, we concluded that the specified research criteria was too explicit, and available articles, reports, studies do not cover it. The providers were not disclosing the number of patients under each service. A probable reason for this may be the privacy or confidential nature of such information.

Following this conclusion, we decided to broaden our research criteria to discover additional insights. We included the revenue as the point of our research. We obtained revenue figures from multiple company sites, annual reports, and reliable databases such as Crunchbase. Afterward, we ranked them using their revenues. Dignity Health, which is the fifth largest health system in the nation and the largest hospital provider in the state, was the largest provider we came across. The others included Sutter Health ($12.2 billion), Health Net ($16.2 billion), Molina Healthcare ($18.4 billion), and Stanford Hospitals & Clinics ($6 billion).
