Delaware Health Care Claims Database Old

The Delaware Health Care Claims Database (HCCD), powered by DHIN, collects healthcare claims, enrollment, and provider data from Medicare, Medicaid, and the seven largest commercial health insurers in the State of Delaware, making it the single largest repository of claims data Delaware has ever had.



An Investigation into Opioid Prescriptions and ED Events in Delaware 2016-2020 – Over the past ten years, Delaware has implemented multiple programs to combat drug abuse, particularly opioids, due to their rising prevalence in Delaware. The implementation of these programs reduces availability and aid those struggling with abuse, which may result in a decrease in addiction. For these reasons, it is hypothesized that there will be a slow decrease in emergency department (ED) events by patients that obtain opioid prescriptions over time.
