There is so much missing data that I am exploring use of the Ambulatory Health Care Data on Emergency Department Length of Stay.

After searching through all of this, I found NAMCS and NHAMCS data can also be downloaded from the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR)

I am also analyzing Semantic Medline. http://semanticommunity.info/A_NITRD_Dashboard/Semantic_Medline

The deadline for using external data was two days ago - as far as I can tell - if it isn't listed here:

http://www.heritagehealthprize.com/c/hhp/forums/t/349/external-data

it can't be used.

However - if you have already made a prediction using that data - it seems like one could read that the deadline for TELLING everyone is April 11, 2012.

And apparently you can ask for approval as well - but you might want to post in that thread.
