HCUP Nationwide Databases to be Downloadable
Beginning next Tuesday, March 1, 2016, the HCUP Central Distributor will deliver HCUP Nationwide Databases via secure digital download. Once an order is complete, data purchasers will be able to access and securely download their zipped and encrypted files through their online HCUP Central Distributor account. These data files are quite large and, depending on connection speed and other variable internet conditions, may take anywhere from 10 minutes to more than an hour to download.
Tips to facilitate successful downloads, as well as other updated Purchasing FAQs, will be available to users when the download feature launches on March 1. Orders for Nationwide Databases placed prior to March 1, 2016, will not have download capability. All State Databases will continue to be delivered on DVDs and shipped via FedEx.
