Health and Human Services department starts on payer/claims database


HHS began seeking bids to create a national, all-payer, all-claims database to use for comparative effectiveness research.

The Department of Health and Human Services in December began seeking bids to create a national all-payer, all-claims database to use for comparative effectiveness research.

In February, the President included $1.1 billion in the economic stimulus package to help physicians and other providers use more "evidence-based information to make informed decisions about health care."

CMS says the database "would allow for greater power in analysis, ensuring that the data infrastructure the Secretary supports will be able to produce robust analysis," according to the bid posting on a federal web site. "Claims data, especially if established in a manner where it can be linked to other data over time, can be powerful a tool for CER and ultimately improve care for all Americans."
