CIVHC is pleased to announce new data will be available this fall on the Colorado All Payer Claims Database (CO APCD) website to inform improvement opportunities for the state.
A wide variety of cost, utilization and quality reports are currently available on the website across Medicaid and commercial payers by county and Zip Code Level 3. In early fall, look for additional population-based metrics, payers and years to be added to the website including:
- Medicare (2009-2011)
- Medicaid, and 20 largest commercial payers (2009-2013)
- Observation Stays
- Chronic Conditions
- Hypertension Prevalence
- Depression Prevalence
- Preventive Care Measures
- Breast Cancer Screening
- Cervical Cancer Screening
- Colorectal Cancer Screening
- Diabetes Care LDL-C Testing
- Search options by Health Statistics Regions
As administrators of the CO APCD, CIVHC remains committed to ensuring this important public resource is as valuable as possible. In addition to the data updates above, we are working hard to increase the availability of facility-specific price information and have recently added significant staff capacity to ensure data outputs from the APCD are timely, credible and actionable.
We value the input of those using the APCD and welcome any suggestions on how we can continue to evolve to provide useful information to Coloradans. Please contact us at ColoradoAPCD@civhc.org with suggestions or questions.
