Update: EH and EP data has been updated to be up to date as of September 2013, the latest quarterly update by CMS. Both EH and EP data now show calculated payment amounts as reported by CMS as well.

Please also note that according to CMS's EHR Incentive Programs Data and Program Reports page, only data on Medicare eligible hospitals (EH) and providers (EP) are available as the HITECH "Act does not require CMS to post the names of eligible professionals, eligible hospitals and CAHs that have received Medicaid EHR Incentive Program payments.

About

Introduction

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) releases data about providers and hospitals who have successfully attested to Meaningful Use and received incentives for using electronic health records (EHRs) under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH).

With these and additional data being made more and more open, we (a team of clinicans, developers, and designers) saw an opportunity develop data visualizations and tools showing not only the progress but also potential impact of this and other important pieces of legislation.

Leveraging Available Open Data

We are collecting data from a number of great sources and encourage you to read our note about data quality.

More Information

We see this as being just the beginning and are interested in adding more data sets and ideas to this open source piece of software.

For more background information, visit Mark's blog post about this project and/or the presentation introducing an earlier version at the health edition of a Data Business DC meetup.

We envision a mash-up of various open data sets including but not limited to quality, social, and other data to provide continuing insight. This is open source and on Github so please do help us keep going and let us know what you have done by tweeting to @Skram, @Geek_Nurse, and/or @CheckQM.

A Note About Data Quality

Data quality: it's important to us and should be to you too.

As you read in the 'About' text, this website is compilation of open and freely available data from a number of data providers and stewards. We are bringing these disparate sources together as carefully as possible using unique entity identifiers (CMS CCN for hospitals and NPI for providers) but anomalies can occur and we want you to be aware of these.
