All Payer Claims Database Updates Include Increased Data Analysis Capacity
The All Payer Claims Database (APCD) portal in AHRQ’s United States Health Information Knowledgebase (USHIK) has been updated and redesigned to improve usability. Updates to the portal, which contains the APCD data dictionaries from participating states, include the following:
- The most recent reporting specifications for each of the previously loaded states.
- Colorado APCD reporting specifications.
- Increased capability to view, analyze, compare, and export state reporting specifications. The home page, list pages, comparisons, and detail pages have all been refreshed.
- APCD specifications by state, file submissions, or data element lists. Each of these list pages allows a user to filter and/or select a variety of items for comparison.
USHIK is an online, publicly accessible registry and repository of health care–related data, metadata, and standards. USHIK is funded and directed by AHRQ with management support in partnership with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics.
