The mission of the Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute® is to establish foundational evidence for health policy and radiology practice that promotes the effective and efficient use of health care resources and improves patient care.

Data Tools

Neiman Almanac 2.0

The Neiman Almanac aggregates multiple years of data from varying data sources to create dynamic tables of both state and national figures on volume, spending, access and workforce of radiology services.

Medicaid vs. Medicare Reimbursement By State

This heat map demonstrates the ratio of Medicaid to Medicare charges for professional services rendered, serving as a proxy for reimbursement, for 10 common procedures in each state in 2012 vs 2022.

Alternative Payment Model (APM) Toolkit

The APM Toolkit is a set of web-based tools that provide data to assist radiology practices in developing APMs and negotiating arrangements for Accountable Care Organization (ACO) participation. This toolkit contains:

Inpatient Cost Evaluation Tool (ICE–T)

ICE-T aggregates multiple years of Medicare inpatient claims data and allows the user to examine both hospital and imaging costs across inpatient diagnosis related groups (DRGs).

Breast Screening Bundle Tool

The Breast Screening Bundle Tool allows radiology practices to estimate professional, technical, and global bundled prices for breast cancer screening bundles using different assumptions for which services are included, service utilization, and reimbursement rates.

Neiman Imaging Types of Service (NITOS)

Neiman Imaging Types of Services (NITOS) codes provide a variable that can be merged into datasets by HCPCS code to identify imaging procedures by modality and anatomic site.

Medicare Beneficiary Enrollment Numbers: A Research Tool

In an effort to facilitate imaging-focused health policy research by others, the Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute is now making our estimates of the number of Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries publicly available.

Identification of Academic Radiology Practices

The Identification of Academic Radiology Practices provides information on which radiology practices are academic vs. non-academic.
