Healthcare provider data and medical marketing lists

CarePrecise Select
Custom Healthcare Provider Database

When you only need a portion of the U.S. healthcare provider database.


Our targeted lists deliver the provider's federal NPI number, contact information, including mailing address/phone/fax and practice address/phone/fax, provider names and AKA names, all reported taxonomy codes, plus other data contained in the NPI Registry for the targeted providers, updated monthly.

CarePrecise Select comes as both an Excel (.xlsx and .csv) file with properly-cased names and addresses, and intelligent, correctly genderized salutations (the name that comes at the beginning of a letter, as in "Dear Ms. Jones") for mailing – all in a simple flat file you can use immediately in Excel*, and as a Microsoft Access database (.mdb) with the full information available for all U.S. HIPAA-covered healthcare providers.


How to get a Count and a Quote

Beginning with the July 2022 release, the fields marked with a
symbol will be moved to a new table named tEntity-C, with the NPI as relational key, to accommodate the growing dataset.

NPI National Provider Identifier Relational Key
EntityType Entity Type Code Type 1 indicates an individual provider (i.e., physician, psychologist, etc.); Type 2 indicates an organizational provider (i.e., hospital, lab, pharmacy, etc.). Type1 entities (individuals) may have only one NPI number and so only one record, but Type 2 entities (organizations) may have multiple NPI numbers and thus multiple records.

CPAC tTaxo
(Provider Taxonomy codes indicating specialties and subspecialties for Type 1/individual providers, and facility types for Type 2/organization providers; MDB and CSV formats). One-to-many table.


NPI National Provider Identifier Relational Key
Taxo Healthcare Provider Taxonomy Code (Specialties and Facilty Types) Providers may have multiple taxonomies reported here, and thus multiple records in this one-to-many table. The Taxonomy Code indicates the provider's specialty; i.e., Pediatrician, Optometrist, etc.; or facility type; i.e., Hospital, Clinic, Nursing Facility, etc.

Tnum Source: Added by CarePrecise to indicate the original NPPES flat file Taxonomy Code (specialty) field number. The number of the NPPES taxonomy field (1 through 15). If a primary taxonomy is not indicated, it may be useful to assume that the first-listed code (1) is primary.


TaxoDescr   Taxonomy code description (the specialty/subspecialty in English)


CPAC tTaxoGroups
(Provider Taxonomy codes indicating group practices; MDB and CSV formats). One-to-many table.
NPI National Provider Identifier Relational Key

The source data (NPPES) permits group codes to be reported in up to 15 fields in this section. CarePrecise creates a one-to-many table, listing each of a provider's reported taxonomy group codes in a separate record. The Gnum is the NPPES Group Taxonomy field number in which the code was reported, allowing the code be matched with the specific group specialty in the tTaxo table. For instance, a code in tTaxoGroup field Gnum 3 indicates a group practice of the specialty reported in Tnum 3 in the tTaxo table.


CMS does not report the group codes in the taxonomy section (which appear in our tTaxo table) because they represent an additional layer of information on any one or more of the tTaxo codes.


TaxoGroup Healthcare Provider Taxonomy Group_[1 through 15] 193200000X for a multi-specialty practice
193400000X for a single-specialty practice


CPAC tCoLoCode
(MDB and CSV formats)
NPI National Provider Identifier Relational Key (composite)

Provider CoLoCode™ (co-location code, a CarePrecise algorithmically derived* exclusive). The NPI and CoLoCode comprise the dual relational key for this table. The NPI identifies the provider record, and the CoLoCode identifies the physical location. The CoLoCode is an up to 40-character string that stands in for detailed location data, and is not intended to be sensical to the human viewer.


Relational Key (composite)

This code is an algorithmically derived conformation of the provider's practice location, permitting identification of providers who practice at the same location, for instance, physician groups, dental groups, radiology groups, etc. By using this table in conjunction with the tTaxoGroups table, it is possible to visualize the group entity (generally an organization) and its provider members. CoLoCodes are created for Practice addresses in the United States (US) and US Minor Islands (UM).



Count of providers matching this co-location (algorithmically derived* conformation of the provider's practice location; see tCoLoCodes above). Indicates the number of providers practicing at this location.

Group Y= This NPI/CoLoCode record is a group entity. Same as the Group field in the tEntity table. It means that the NPI has a record in the tTaxoGroup table.
CountType1 Number of individual practitioners found co-located with this group To see the number of Type 2 providers (organizations), subtract CountType1 from Count.

* Marked above by an asterisk, algorithmically derived data in the datasets includes data that is extracted/mined from the source databases, but which has a margin of error and should not be relied upon as conclusive. Record linking algorithms are used to enrich our data when direct correlation (via a unique identifier field) is not available, using available information in name, address, phone, taxonomy, and other fields. In particular, some of the older data on providers excluded from billing Medicare (from the HHS Office of Inspector General's excluded providers database) can only be linked to NPI records by this means. Please note that when matches are found, there may be instances where an individual or firm has the same or similar name and location information as an excluded provider but is actually a different party. Therefore, it is important that you verify a potential match with the debarring agency identified in the record information. See the disclaimer appearing at the bottom of the documentation page.

Not all fields in all records are populated with data. Healthcare providers may update data in their record using the federal NPI registry website, and are required to do so within 30 days of a change in their information.

CarePrecise LLC reserves the right to make changes in the data and data structure as it deems necessary to preserve the quality of the product. Please read the Notice at the bottom of the page for additional information about the data.
