Latest Database Launched in AHRQ’s Data Innovations Effort
As part of AHRQ’s ongoing effort to offer new ways to access, synthesize and use healthcare data, the agency has launched the Physician and Physician Practice Research Database (3P-RD).
This new database captures information on physician and physician practice characteristics to help address data gaps in physician information within health services at the State and market levels. The latest addition to the 3P-RD is the Physician Practice files, which offer insights into the characteristics of physician practices in each participating State. Other datasets within the 3P-RD include the Physician Geographic and Physician Practice Geographic files, providing summaries of data at the three-digit zip code level.
AHRQ’s Data Innovations resource also includes the Synthetic Healthcare Database for Research (SyH-DR) database and Social Determinants of Health.
