All-Payer Claims Databases: Current Status and Realizing the Potential

All-payer claims databases (APCDs) offer policy-makers and stakeholders access to the information they need to evaluate the cost and quality of health care in their states. Currently more than 30 states have, are implementing, or have an interest in forming an APCD. On a webinar on March 25 hosted by State Health and Value Strategies, a program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, speakers outlined the key elements of an APCD, insights into their formation, and how to develop reports and analyses based on that data.
