We are delighted to announce that our new Extended Physician, Group and Hospital (EPGH) dataset is in beta release, and is available for CarePrecise subscribers to download. The new data adds rich physician information, including verified hospital and group affiliations and education data, to the popular CarePrecise Access Complete database of U.S. healthcare providers.
Practice groups and hospitals, as well as physicians and other professionals are all inter-linked within the vast relational database representing nearly 4 million healthcare providers in all. But the data is made accessible by CarePrecise's unique compression and record-linkage processing, so that it can be used in popular desktop database software, such as Microsoft Access and FileMaker.
The combined CPAC/EPGH database offers a 360-degree view of U.S. healthcare providers' data, and assimilates in a single database the information contained in the federal NPI database (NPPES), the Medicare database (PECOS), the federal excluded provider database (LEIE), Hospital Compare and Physician Compare databases. It is the only comprehensive source of this data in a single database environment, and it can be used on ordinary laptop and desktop computers with ordinary office database software.
The new EPGH dataset is not available separately, but as an add-on to the CarePrecise Access Complete (CPAC) database of all HIPAA-covered U.S. healthcare providers. Currently in beta release, the EPGH add-on is now available only to current quarterly and monthly subscribers to the CPAC product, pending the full release scheduled for this fall.
To review the fields in the new dataset, see the field list table on the CarePrecise Access Complete documentation page. Standard pricing of CarePrecise data products provides a single-user license; multi-user licenses and derivative product (limited publication) licenses are also available.
