About the NursingHomeDatabase National Provider Identifier (NPI) Database

The National Provider Identifier (NPI) is a unique identification number for covered health care providers and organizations. This includes health care professionals like:

  • Chiropractors
  • Dentists
  • Nurses
  • Pharmacists
  • Physical Therapists
  • Physicians
  • Psychologists

NPIs are also assigned to health care organizations including:

  • Ambulance Companies
  • Clinics
  • Group Practices
  • Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs)
  • Home Health Agencies (HHAs)
  • Hospitals
  • Laboratories
  • Nursing Homes
  • Pharmacies
  • Residential Treatment Centers
  • Suppliers of Durable Medical Equipment (DME)

(Our search is limited to doctors, nurses, and doctor groups.)

The NPI is a 10-digit, intelligence-free numeric identifier. This means that the numbers do not carry other information about healthcare providers, such as the state in which they live or their medical specialty. The NPI must be used in lieu of legacy provider identifiers in the HIPAA standards transactions. Covered health care providers and all health plans and health care clearing houses must use the NPIs in the administrative and financial transactions adopted under HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act).

NPI benefits the medical industry and public in general by providing standard unique health identifiers for health care providers, health care plans, and employers and provides simple electronic transmission of HIPAA standard transactions.
