Re: US National Provider Identifier Registry?
GA Programmer - I think you are looking for the CMS NPPES.

I just realized I cannot include links in a comment so email me for these links.

You can find the NPPES download files at 

You can also search via API if you go to an open source project called Bloom API

There is more NPI-linked data at CMS Physician Compare

Happy to chat more about open health data at [email protected]

US National Provider Identifier Registry?
Anyone have any info on this? Sounds like the app points people to the Obamacare providers (not bad if you are on that plan I guess), but hardly what I would call a "big data" solution (Big Goverment, on the other hand....) and definitely not "open".

As for the other solutions, it is encouraging to see the innovations out there and the useful ways to use "big data" to provide solutions for health problems.
