Washington All-Payer Claims Database

In 2015, the Washington legislature initiated a statewide all-payers health care claims database (APCD) as a public resource for improving delivery of health care across the state. The WA-APCD is administered by Washington's Office of Financial Management through its lead organization, the Center for Health Systems Effectiveness, with data services provided by Onpoint Health Data

Data started arriving March 15, 2017! Visit us here or join the WA-APCD listserv for updates on reporting requirements, governance, and more as the program moves from vision to reality.

First provider review & reconsideration period coming up -- register your practice now

Performance metrics for primary-care practices, hospitals, and ambulatory surgery centers will be shared with the public when WA-APCD public reporting begins in spring 2018. These providers can register now to review their scores and patient attributions during the 30-day review & reconsideration period starting mid-January. Email the WA-APCD team for an invitation.
