The CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics conducts the National Health Care Surveys, which include the National Hospital Care Survey (NHCS), National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS), and the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS). These nationally representative surveys provide data and information used by Congress, healthcare services researchers and others to shape healthcare policy and the future of health care in the United States.
The National Center for Health Statistics is accepting registration from eligible clinicians (ECs), eligible professionals (EPs), eligible hospitals (EHs) or Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) of their intent to submit data to the National Health Care Surveys as part of the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs (Meaningful Use).
