Sentinel Active Surveillance Roundtable: Multi-Payer Claims Database
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) made possible substantial investments in comparative effectiveness research (CER), particularly in the areas of improving the data infrastructure and methods for research. As part of these investments, the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has been collaborating with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, OptumInsight, and other healthcare industry and research leaders to develop a Multi-Payer Claims Database (MPCD), which is envisioned as an important new resource for CER.
On November 7, the Engelberg Center hosted a rountable webinar on federal efforts to develop a multi-payer claims database to support comparative effectiveness reseach, featuing presentations by Dave Knutson and Andre Chappel from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The presentations included an overview of the project, recently achieved milestones, and the project’s future direction.
