About the pilot
Data at the Point of Care (DPC) is a pilot API program that enables healthcare providers to deliver high quality care directly to Medicare beneficiaries by making a patient's Medicare claims data available to the provider for treatment needs. DPC’s pilot phase enables CMS to better understand how FHIR standards may be leveraged to grant healthcare providers timely, standardized claims history data for the Medicare beneficiaries in their care
Provider organizations and vendors are encouraged to test the API and its capabilities using synthetic claims data in our sandbox environment before requesting access to production data. The DPC team welcomes feedback from sandbox and production partners, which will inform the design of the API as a system best suited for the needs of healthcare providers to directly impact the quality of beneficiary care.
