Integrated Data Repository (IDR) promotes enhanced data integration

Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has made significant development in constructing the Integrated Data Repository (IDR) to facilitate a complete view of Medicare and Medicaid data consisting of claims, beneficiary data, and drug information. The IDR is presently populated with seven years of                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Medicare Parts A, B, and D paid claims, and CMS has recently included Part B and DME pre-payment claims. Part A pre-payment claims data is planned to be incorporate later this summer.

The IDR is an important part of CMS’ data strategy and it guarantees a dependable, secure, enterprise-wide view of data assisting CMS and its partners in more efficient delivery of quality health care at lesser cost to CMS’ beneficiaries through state-of-the-art health informatics.

CMS is also working to incorporate State Medicaid data into the IDR, while also working with States to improve the quality and constancy of the data reported to the Federal government from each State. MSIS data has been the primary data source for Medicaid statistical data and it is part of Medicaid eligibility and claims data from all 50 States and the District of Columbia.
