By late 2012, preliminary reports will be released from Colorado’s new All Payer Claims Database (APCD). This statewide warehouse will securely compile de-identified claims data from private insurance carriers, Medicaid and Medicare to provide comprehensive pictures of health care costs and utilization in the state of Colorado. Colorado’s legislators created the APCD in 2010. The Center for Improving Value in Health Care (CIVHC), a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, has responsibility for administering the database. Other states have APCDs available can be viewed on the APCD Council Website.
