CMMI Model Data Sharing (CMDS) Initiative Makes Model Participation Data Available to Researchers

CMS is pleased to announce the availability of new Research Identifiable Files (RIFs) for six CMS Innovation Center models.

CMS is releasing participation data for the following models:

Each model in the release will include a set of three files, one per participant type (entity, provider, beneficiary). Each set of files will be updated on a quarterly basis, reflecting changes captured for the prior quarter. Quarterly updates will include “full replacement files” and will contain data from the launch of each model to the current quarter. The group of models for which files are available will expand over time to include additional models.

Note that the GPDC model is transitioning to the ACO REACH model as of January 1, 2023. The model ID number (identifying variable in these files) for ACO REACH will remain the same as the model ID for GPDC (ID 63). However, please note that ACO REACH data will not appear in these research files until the 2023 Q2 posting in April, 2023. The January 2023 files will still contain the GPDC participation data as of December 2022.
