What are All Payer Claims Databases?

APCDs are large-scale databases that systematically collect health care claims data from a variety of payer sources. These databases, typically created by a state mandate, generally include data derived from medical claims, pharmacy claims, eligibility files, provider (physician and facility) files, and dental claims from private and public payers.

APCD systems collect data from the existing transaction systems in place to pay health care claims, thus leveraging data from within the insurance claims and reimbursement system. The information typically collected in an APCD includes patient demographics, provider demographics, clinical, financial, and utilization data.
