Physician Compare Data

Metadata Updated: November 10, 2020

This is the official dataset associated with the Physician Compare Website provided by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). These data give you useful information about the physicians and other healthcare professionals currently enrolled in Medicare. Currently, Physician Compare includes general information, such as demographic information and Medicare quality program participation. Quality of care measure data will be added to the site and to this database in 2014. Because of data use agreements with data vendors, not all data on Physician Compare can be shared in this downloadable file. For more information about what is included in this database and how it differs from the information on the Physician Compare Website, refer to the data dictionary.
