  • Can you be a little more specific? Are you looking for a specific type of provider or at least hospital/physician? – Mark Silverberg Sep 11 '14 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. – Fernando Hoces De La Guardia Sep 12 '14 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. – Mark Silverberg Sep 12 '14 at 18:29
