January Data User Group Meeting

January 25 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

The January CO APCD Data User Group meeting will feature analysts from the Center for Improving Value in Health Care (CIVHC) discussing how they use per-unit cost analysis in various reports.

Skill: Analysis of per-unit costs

Before performing any analysis including per-unit costs, analysts must determine how to approach the variable as determined by the needs of the report. In this session, CIVHC analysts will demonstrate the different ways they use the per-unit variable through three different report case studies.

CO APCD Case Studies

  • Out-of-Network Resources – fee schedules detailing the prices out-of-network providers are allowed to charge for specific services per Colorado legislation.
  • Provider Payment Tool – a price transparency tool enabling Coloradans to understand variance in health care payments to providers.
  • Hospital Price Transparency Comparison – a non-public analysis exploring how Colorado hospitals are complying with the federal transparency laws to list pricing on their websites.

Speakers will include:

  • Nicole Kuzmich, CIVHC Health Care Data Analyst
  • Tim Ginader, CIVHC Senior Health Care Analyst, Team Lead
  • Asmita Ghimire, CIVHC Health Care Data Analyst
