New Portal Compares APCD, ASC X12, and NCPDP Standard Data

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/National Center for Health Statistics (CDC/NCHS) have partnered to provide a portal in the United States Health Information Knowledgebase (USHIK),  AHRQ’s metadata registry of healthcare-related data elements and their sources.

The portal includes a core set of data elements from each state’s All-Payer Claims Database (APCD); and the corresponding data elements in (1) the Accredited Standards Committee (ASC) X12 5010 standard, (2) the ASC X12 Post-Adjudicated Data Reporting Guides (in development), and (3) the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (NCPDP) Uniform Healthcare Payer Standard Implementation Guide Version 1.0. The strength of the APCD portal in USHIK is its ability to facilitate a comparison among the corresponding data elements of each state’s APCD with the national standard for each data element. Using standard data elements can facilitate health information exchange and provide better estimates of disease prevalence and treatment practices.
