I've been working with HEDIS measures for quality measurement in healthcare in the US, but most of what I have seen is proprietary. I'm interested in reproducible research hence my need for open data. Any suggestions?

  • Can you be a little more specific? Are you looking for a specific type of provider or at least hospital/physician? Sep 11, 2014 at 22:00
  • So far I have worked with only Hospital level data from AHRQ. Unfortunately this data is proprietary. As I explore this topic for my dissertation I would like to favor more publicly available data. Any level (geo-unit/hospital/physician/patient) could work for me. Sep 12, 2014 at 15:52
  • I added some places to start for sources directly from CMS but there's a lot of other information out there especially when you are willing to go hunting for it from local MONHARQ instances, etc. Sep 12, 2014 at 18:29
