The site displays matching records including the doctor's name, NPI number, state, credentials and taxonomy.

HIPAASpace contains a large database of NPI numbers for NPI exchange needs. Individuals provide the doctor's name, and the site returns all related information, including the name, mailing address, phone number, practice location address and the NPI number. Individuals can download this information in HTML, text format or PDF.

The NPPES registry search section allows individuals to locate doctors' information by providing the NPI number, first and last name, practice address or ZIP code. The site returns the doctor's country, primary taxonomy, full names, city and street.
