U.S. Healthcare Provider Counts

The table below lists approximate counts for each of the healthcare provider specialties/subspecialties/facilities ("provider taxonomies") with practice addresses within the 50 states, DC and Puerto Rico. CarePrecise Access Complete (CPAC) datasets include all of these 6.2 million providers, including all states, territories, Armed Forces locations and U.S. practices located in other countries. Note that providers may enumerate separate NPI records to cover multiple specialties; a single provider may have more than one record and multiple taxonomies, and will be counted under each relevant taxonomy. Scroll in the panel to view the full list of taxonomy codes. (The listing below does not include healthcare providers with military and foreign addresses, or those located in U.S. territories except Puerto Rico; however, these are included in CarePrecise Access Complete and Master Bundle healthcare provider databases.)
