All-Payer Claims Database
Total health care spending in the US is expected to reach US$4.8 trillion by 2021 – or nearly one-fifth of the US economy. To reduce health care costs and improve health outcomes, it is critical that informed health care delivery decisions be made. Moreover, data-driven decisions will be essential to implementing successful reform initiatives.
This interactive report focuses on the analysis and visualization of health care claims data from an all-payer claims database (APCD). It illustrates how state governments can gain quick insights into their state’s population health using the visual analysis capability of SAS Claims Analytics for APCD. With the ability to analyze health care cost, quality, accessibility and utilization holistically, government leaders can take the right steps to improve citizens' health outcomes.
