Data.CMS.gov is the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Spending data repository. Every time we go to the site we find more data available. We need people to look for potentially helpful datasets there, crosscheck against what we already have available, and post when they find promising data so that we can create new issues for collecting/tidying/uploading specific datasets.

It looks like there's a well-documented API for getting a list based on various domains. Perhaps if other datasources use the same API, one "master" list could be generated.

@TimBanks Wow!

@seamus-mckinsey Could we get your contact information to invite you to our Slack group? Lots of discussion happening over there. 😄 I think it may also be worthwhile to get you invited to our GitHub organization. Feel free to send me an email so I can get your contact info: matt [dot] gawarecki [at] gmail [you know the rest].

@pirtleshell Hey Robert! I don't think I have the power to invite you to the Slack organization, but if you fill out this contact form I think they'll get you started. Once you're in the organization, you can join the #drug-spending channel, or post here and one of us can invite you!
