New York State has embarked on an ambitious project to build an All Payer Database (APD) to serve as a comprehensive data and analytical resource for supporting healthcare decision-making and research.  The NY Department of Health (DOH) recognizes that integrating data about the health system into an APD that includes not only claims data, but other critical data sources – such as clinical and hospital discharge data, vital statistics, and population/census data – will allow stakeholders to monitor efforts to improve care quality and population health research, and reduce health costs for New York residents.  

DOH also envisions additional benefits with the APD, including: enhanced security, national benchmarking, advanced analytics, disease and risk profiles, a suite of quality measures, and the ability to easily visualize trends and results.

To date, the NY APD includes hospital utilization data for all payers in New York, as well as Medicaid claims and eligibility data, and claims and eligibility data for all Qualified Health Plans offered through the NY Health Insurance Exchange.  The NY APD includes a data warehouse component that enables power users to query these datasets directly, and a web  portal that connects users with a data visualization reporting package that provides data analytics for each of these sources.

This roundtable describes the exciting APD project, including the project management, design process and examples of benefits New York expects to realize.
