    This is buried on the CMS website along with the Part D Dashboard. Why isn't there a link off the main page so it is easier to find?

    I see there is now a Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Dashboard published. Good work and glad to see there is more information becoming available to the public in a user-friendly format. You should add this information to your page.

    Have any of the 9 Medicare "basic files" been released? If so, can you provide a link to them? If not, can you provide a firm release date for them?

    Hi my name is Jessica I am currently a nursing student and I find that the new transparency of health care to be intriguing. I believe that although health care companies may not agree with complete transparency, in the long run the new transparency in health care will help fix problems and providers will be able to better take care of their patients with the new wealth of knowledge such as knowing what is paid for under DRG's." My question is, do you believe that the new transparency of health care is going to create any long term problems such as providing a way to cheat the system?

    Is there a process to select the data sets that are made available? We have an information repository available in XML format that might be appropriate to share but I don't know what the process is.

    Great way to make CMS data more meaningful. Not that I understand the data displayed...but it is far more user friendly, that is for sure. It shows what COULD be done to answer a question and provide information to those who seek it. I heard about this from others and had to check it out for myself. This can really be helpful to everybody, and I hope that CMS continues down this road with more helpful information displays of this type.

    The Medicare Dashboard is an awesome tool. This is a huge leap forward for visualizing data in a useful, informative manner. Kudos to CMS for making data more transparent. There will probably be people out there who do not like this transparency, especially when raw data is turned into valuable information, but, too bad for them. It's time that the wealth of CMS data be turned into useful information for all - not just those who live in a the flat world of spreadsheets. Finally, a way to actually see Medicare information at work!! I can't wait to see other Medicare dashboards that use Parts B, C, D and Medicaid data. CMS can keep the privacy protections for the data by always summarizing it at national or state or some aggreagte level - that's where some of the most interesting information is, anyway (especially to taxpayers and politicians, alike). LOVE IT and keep going, CMS!
