New claims-based datasets offer evidence to inform policymaking decisions, but states are still learning how to use them. This session will review opportunities for states to leverage claims data for policy goals, providing an overview of state APCD experiences and state examples. Two researchers using the Health Care Cost Institute’s (HCCI) national dataset will share their findings: one on state telehealth practice; and another on California’s experience with reference-based pricing and implications for all states.
This session is funded with support from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation through the Health Care Cost Institute’s State Health Policy Grant Program
