All Payer Claims Data Extract Available

A data extract from the Utah All Payer Claims Database (APCD) is available. The de-identified APCD dataset (DIADS) contains pharmacy and medical claims data from years 2011- mid-2013, and includes information about medical procedures, diagnoses, and prescription drug. For privacy reasons, DIADS contains only basic and aggregated demographic information about patients. No information about providers or insurance carriers is included.

DIADS is available for legitimate research purposes to qualified researchers and institutions at no cost. Prospective DIADS users can apply for data access by completing the online data request form. In addition, a data user manual for the DIADS is now available on our data collaboration wiki site.
