McDermottPlus Analyzing Medicare Physician Data

On April 9, 2014, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services released the Medicare Provider Utilization and Payment Data: Physician and Other Supplier Public Use File, a comprehensive file that contains information on services and procedures provided to Medicare beneficiaries by every physician, health care professional and facility enrolled in Medicare. The file contains information on the services performed by each physician, each physician’s specialty and geographic location, the number of beneficiaries treated, charges submitted by providers and payments from Medicare.

The data allow the public and health care marketplace a unique glimpse into previously unreleased information on Medicare utilization and payments—where procedures are being performed and by whom, whether care is delivered in a facility or office setting, how much providers charge for their services and what providers receive in payments from Medicare.

McDermottPlus can process the data to provide clients with the following analyses:
