Delaware Health Care Claims Database

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

An overview of the HCCD

How the HCCD is Making Health Data More Useful

The HCCD can help lawmakers and decision-makers:

  • Identify areas for improvement, growth, and success across the healthcare system
  • Understand and quantify health system performance and healthcare transformation
  • Provide meaningful comparisons and actionable data and reports to help inform policy and consumer decisions

The History of the HCCD

The Delaware General Assembly passed legislation in FY16 authorizing the Delaware Health Information Network to develop a healthcare claims database.

§ 10311 The Delaware Health Care Claims Database — Findings; purpose; creation (delaware.gov)

The purpose of the HCCD is to facilitate data-driven, evidence-based improvements in access, quality, and cost of healthcare and to promote and improve the public health through increased transparency of accurate claims data and information.

Testimonials

“I think it has saved a lot of money particularly for my practice. I’m not getting duplicate faxes sent to me and from other facilities and that’s been a huge resource in terms of time. My staff is not spending time on the phone trying to get results sent. Instead we can just log onto DHIN, verify the patient, and have access to all of that in less than 30 seconds.”
