The Center for Integrated Healthcare Data Research (CIHDR) offers Medicare and Medicaid claims data originating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

The Medicare, Medicaid, and various commercial claims databases contain information on demographics (age, gender, race/ethnicity, etc.), enrollment start and end dates, dispensed medications and performed procedures and the associated dates, and medical diagnosis with its date and setting (inpatient care, outpatient care, or in a skilled nursing facility). Linking RPDR (EHR) clinical data to CMS claims data will provide robust and comprehensive data for understanding patient outcomes.
