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
