Faqs


  • What format are the databases in?

    The Sql-Server product is in a standard .BAK file (Ver. 2008). The MYSql product is in a self-contained export file  (Ver. 5.7). 

  • How large are the downloads?

    The Sql-Server product is .zipped into a ~5Gb. file. The MYSql product is .zipped into a ~1Gb. file.

  • How much database disk space does the NPI database require?

    The Sql-Server product is ~25Gb. The MYSql product is ~17Gb.

  • Is the Express edition of sql-server compatible?

    No, Sql-Server Express has a hard limit of 10Gb. of data file storage.

  • How often is the product updated?

    Every month on the same day the monthly full file is available on the NPPES site. The PECOS data is also updated at that time.

  • I downloaded the sample database...the schema has lots of foreign key constraints and indexes...Is it complicated?

    The schema is straightforward. All of the primary tables use the npi number as the primary key to join to one another. The indexes aid in performance.

  • What are the licensing requirements?

    The databases are distributed using the GPL License.

  • I searched for a provider and the address is incorrect, why?

    The only data manipulation we do is remove duplicates and properly case the names and such. The address is incorrect because that's the way it is in the origonal file. Properly cased columns include; First Name, Middle Name, Last Name, Address components, Organization names, and Contact names. The proper casing is performed so that address labels may be printed. Duplicates are removed from; Practitioner Identifiers, Practitioner Taxonomies, and Practitioner Taxonomy Groups.

  • Is the schema of the sample database the same as the full database?

    Yes.  

  • Who is npidatasource?

    We are a small company owned and operated by Database Professionals who have worked with the NPPES / NPI database since its creation. We have created a set of first class Database Products which any IT shop/ Researcher will find: easy to use, accurate, and performant.

customer Feedback

J. P.     University of South Carolina College of Nursing
"People thoroughly familiar with the NPPES NPI Registry are painfully aware of how clunky and wide the downloadable file actually is. Manipulating such large amounts of error-laden data is quite a time consuming and labor-intensive task. My job as a data analyst requires that I use the data from the NPI Registry often. NPIDatasource saved the day. Their continuously updated databases are built upon a very elegant schema that is easy to understand and use. Their products have saved me a lot of time and effort. Thank you NPIDatasource!"

"I work as a Data Analyst for a small healthcare consultancy. I have dealt with the NPI file from CMS before, and it has caused me a lot of aggravation. It was much faster this time around and a lot cheaper to get it from NPIDataSource. The data looks great. Ken also provided me with great customer service. He responded very quickly and also had the knowledge and database experience to point me in the right direction for using the .bak file in my SQL Server Express edition. I highly recommend using NPIDataSource and I will definitely re-order next year!"
