With Commonwealth Fund support, the National Association of Health Data Organizations is developing a series of fact sheets and a best practices guide about all-payer claims databases, which provide crucial information on the health care services rendered for different patient populations and different payers. The four fact sheets
published to date include: All-Payer Claims Databases, All-Payer Claims Databases in Public Health and Medicaid, Standardization of Data Collection in All-Payer Claims Databases
, and Key State Health Care Databases for Improving Health Care Delivery
. The issue brief, All-Payer Claims Databases: State Initiatives to Improve Health Care Transparency
, can be found on the Fund's Web site.
