Someone made available the data in a searchable format here: http://www.mdstars.io/ (we'd build something similar).
1) It is only pulling some of the data. If I put Phoenix in the city, it only pulls up 1 page (20 physicians).
There are a lot more physicians in Phoenix.
2) There is no way to export or download the data from this search results format.
The ideal data set I am looking for would cover all physicians referring to home health the the Phoenix metro area (Phoenix, Chandler, Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Sun City, Surprise, Glendale, Gilbert, Surprise, Cave Creek, Care Free) or all of Arizona if that is easier as long as I can get the city they are located in.
> Search by State
I’m looking for the physician referring and name of the provider they work for, provider location or city, which home health provider they referred to for downstream, if there is demographic data on the patients, i.e. diagnosis codes, age, sex, ethnicity, episode length, reimbursement amounts related to referrals from the referring provider, etc. Ultimately need to be able to put it in csv or excel to manipulate it further.
