More than 15 states have implemented an APCD or are in the process of doing so, and many others express strong interest, according to the national APCD Council. Implementation of an APCD is seen as one of the most important steps a state can take to improve the care and lower the cost of health care.

The CO APCD is unique in that it is administered by CIVHC, a non-profit, non-partisan organization, rather than a state department or state agency. This unique structure is beneficial in that it allows us to provide reports and information publicly, provide custom data reports, and receive financial support through grants and other mechanisms rather than relying on taxpayer dollars.
