We are pleased to provide a couple of updates on the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey
- New data available - the Medical Organizations Survey
- New repository for user tools and info – Github
- Recent MEPS Publications
1. MEPS HC-175: 2015 Full Year Medical Organizations Survey File
The MEPS Medical Organizations Survey (MEPS MOS) is designed to provide nationally representative estimates of the characteristics of patients' usual sources of care (USC) and to support analyses of the association between practice characteristics and patients' experiences with care, including access to care, service use, quality of care, and expenditures for 2015. This is the first Federal survey that has the capability of directly linking practice characteristics with patients' experiences. The MOS is being repeated this year. Support for both years was provided in part by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Questions about the MOS? Contact Karen Davis (Karen.Davis@ahrq.hhs.gov)
The MOS data file is available on the MEPS website here https://meps.ahrq.gov/mepsweb/
data_stats/download_data_ files_detail.jsp?cboPufNumber= HC-175
The first publically available estimates from the 2015 MEPS MOS are available in MEPS Statistical Brief 502, Characteristics of Practices Used as Usual Source of Care Providers during 2015—Results from the MEPS Medical Organizations Survey at the following link:https://meps.ahrq.gov/data_
