Building Delaware’s Healthcare Claims Database 

During a recent Town Hall meeting, DHIN CEO Dr. Jan Lee gave an update on the building of Delaware’s Healthcare Claims Database (HCCD), also known as an All Payer Claims Database. Near the end of his term, former Governor Markell signed into law Senate Bill 238, creating a healthcare claims database, to be housed and managed by DHIN. A key component of the State Healthcare Innovation Plan, the database marked an important collaboration among health insurers to make claims information available in an effort to control skyrocketing healthcare costs.

Together with Freedman Consulting, a nationally recognized expert in standing up HCCDs, DHIN has stood up regulations for Data Collection and Data Access. The Data Collection rule was published in the October Register. The Data Access Rule will be posted for public comment for two months, beginning later this month.

Additionally, data senders who will be submitting claims should reference the 2017 Healthcare Claims Database Data Submission Guide.

“Delaware continues to lead the nation in healthcare ‘firsts’,” said Dr. Jan Lee, DHIN CEO, “Building this database and sharing this data will be key in our ongoing efforts to achieve the triple aim of improving population health, improving care and reducing healthcare costs.”




“Making key clinical information available to providers that was once fractured across hospitals is no longer an obstacle for the citizens of Delaware. With all hospitals and skilled nursing facilities connecting to the nation’s first statewide health information exchange, the Delaware Health Information Network, Delaware continues to be the First State, setting the standard for information and care integration.”
