The Data Services team has been working on some visuals to address the Opioid Prescriber Summary File data set provided by CMS.gov (https://us.v-cdn.net/6029860/uploads/editor/5q/v5fftvrxuyeh.png). The Map and charts created using this data display the Opioid Prescription Rate and can be grouped by state, county, or zip code. It also reports the most prevalent prescribers in the area, with anesthesiologists excluded from the report. The goal is to create an interesting visual that can be used to inform other data sets and potentially address the prevalence of opioid prescriptions within the Healthcare sector.
If there are any thoughts on how we could expand on the data set, what we can join it to, or how we can enhance the visuals, please feel free to let us know.

There have been a number of revisions made to the 17P Data Collection Document since the July 6th webinar. The old material was removed.
The information and documents below contain the new process of the data collection. The data collection intent is to document prospectively how eligible members are being identified. This can also be used as a basis for a registry.
The updated 17 hydroxyprogesterone caproate (17P) Data Collection Document.
