Advancing a National Health Data Agenda: Realizing the Promise of All Payer Claims Databases

States have always been the primary regulators of their local health care markets and have increasingly used All Payer Claims Databases (APCDs) as one tool to help them make data-driven policy decisions. Like much state health policy, however, APCDs can only do so much as exclusively state-based entities in a world where federal health policy increasingly shapes state markets. In the case of APCDs, there is much to be gained by more state-federal collaboration.

A new Manatt Health webinar explores emerging opportunities for state APCDs to be strengthened by federal initiatives. Key topics that will be covered include:

  • Explaining APCDs’ role as one of our nation’s most powerful data assets
  • Discussing how states can optimize APCDs through federal initiatives to develop standard data templates and facilitate participation by self-insured employers, federal health programs, and others not typically included in state-based APCDs  
  • Exploring opportunities for greater federal-state collaboration
  • Identifying how increased federal-state collaboration could enable APCDs to address structural and sustainability challenges and realize their full potential
