Two-Part Webinar on HCUP: Registration Opens May 14
AHRQ will host a two-part webinar on the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) databases, products, and tools. The HCUP databases include information on inpatient, emergency department, and ambulatory surgery for children, as well as the Pediatric and Neonatal Quality Indicators. During the first 1-hour session, in which the HCUP databases and related resources will be introduced, health services and policy researchers will learn how HCUP can enhance research studies. The webinar is scheduled for May 21 at 2 p.m. ET. The second 1-hour session, scheduled for June 4 at 2 p.m. ET, will introduce HCUP products and tools that facilitate research, with particular emphasis on HCUPnet, the free online data query system. Registration for both webinars is now open; separate registration for each webinar is required. Space is limited and capacity is often reached quickly.
