Data for health system transformation

Oregon’s APAC database is a large-scale database that systematically collects and stores medical, pharmacy and dental claims, subscriber billed premiums, member eligibility, and provider data from commercial health plans, licensed third-party administrators, pharmacy benefit managers, Medicaid and Medicare. The APAC also collects and stores annual information on alternative payment methodologies from certain health plans.

An enhanced APAC solution

Along with our subcontractor NORC, we are providing our solution and technical expertise to perform all APAC data collection, aggregation, enhancement, and quality assurance functions - a combination of proven processes, procedures, health data expertise and IT infrastructure, all built as transparent, nonproprietary products.

This work has involved:

  • Migrating existing data from the current data vendor to a new proposed data management platform
  • Securing and streamlining data collection and aggregation
  • Processing and validating data extracted from health care claims and other related health care data systems
  • Providing data access and reports to approved users
  • Optimizing data for a public-facing APAC website
