One approach is to use -collapse- to create your freq by provider/hsc.  Here's an example to get you started:
****************!
clear 
inp str10 provider_lastname  calls_submitted   str80 hsc_num
Brown   10    "03.05CJ OC-Misc Desk Work"
Brown   10    "03.05TN DC-Misc Desk Work Multiple Pts"
Brown   2    "03.05UT DC-Telephone with Patient"
Brown   1    "03.05TU Otr Diagnos Inter./Eval."
Jones   1    "03.05TU Otr Diagnos Inter./Eval."
Jones   10    "03.05CJ OC-Misc Desk Work"
Jones   8    "03.05TN DC-Misc Desk Work Multiple Pts"
Smith   10    "03.05CJ OC-Misc Desk Work"
Smith   10    "03.05CJ OC-Misc Desk Work"
Red   10    "03.05CJ OC-Misc Desk Work"
Red   8    "03.05CJ OC-Misc Desk Work"
Red   10    "03.05CJ OC-Misc Desk Work"
end
**
collapse (sum) calls_submitted  , by(provider hsc_num)
**
l, sepby(provider)
outsheet using "test.xls", replace
**
gr hbar calls_subm, over(hsc_num) over(prov) blabel(bar) nofill
****************!

Things would be easy if this dataset only listed everything as per 1 unit of  “calls_submitted”, but the submission units vary from 1 to 52 units in my dataset.
