INDIANA – Indiana Department of Insurance (IDOI) Commissioner Amy L. Beard announces Onpoint Health Data (Onpoint) as the administrator for the IDOI All Payer Claims Database (APCD).
The APCD will be a comprehensive database that gathers a substantial amount of healthcare claims data with a focus on the public using the database as a tool for transparency and cost comparison. The APCD will adhere to strict security policies to safeguard personal health data and will follow all applicable state and federal regulations, such as HIPAA, regarding the protection of citizens’ personal health information.
“The APCD will help identify health care needs and provide health information to consumers,” said Commissioner Beard. “It will help consumers compare costs between various treatment settings and approaches.”
Governor Holcomb’s 2020 Next Level Agenda called for the creation of the All Payer Claims Database to increase healthcare price transparency for consumers, and it aligns with his commitment to public health as a core pillar of focus for the state. The Indiana General Assembly enacted the APCD during the 2020 legislative session.
The Indiana Department of Insurance (IDOI) issued a request for proposals (RFP) for an entity to create, operate and maintain the APCD. Based on the state’s evaluation of responses to the RFP, the evaluation team recommended Onpoint be selected to provide the services for the IDOI.
“We are very pleased to partner with an industry market leader with a proven track record for delivering high-quality innovative data solutions for state and federal government clients,” said IDOI APCD Executive Director Jonathan Handsborough.
Onpoint is a full-service data management and analytics firm. The company developed the first-of-its-kind APCD for the state of Maine in 2003 and has developed more than 50% of the established APCDs nationally since that time. Onpoint supports the health data and analytics needs of clients in the state and federal government, purchaser, provider, and health improvement sectors across multiple states and for the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) at the federal level.
