Puget Sound Energy and SEIU 775 Benefits Group to submit data to Alliance’s APCD
The Washington Health Alliance is excited to announce that Puget Sound Energy and SEIU 775 Benefits Group have agreed to become data suppliers for the Alliance’s voluntary All-Payer Claims Database (APCD).
The addition of these two organizations to the Alliance’s APCD will add nearly 11,000 covered lives to this already robust database, which dates back to 2004 and includes data on 4 million covered lives in Washington state. Both organizations will begin submitting their quality and pricing data in April and will be included in future Alliance reports, like the Community Checkup.
PSE and SEIU 775 Benefits Group join more than 25 health plans, self-insured purchasers and union trusts, as well as the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (Medicaid) in sharing their data with the Alliance’s voluntary APCD. A full list of data suppliers is available on the Community Checkup website.
The Alliance is grateful to PSE and SEIU 775 Benefits Group for taking this important step, which will help us continue to expand our reporting on health care quality and cost. The participation and commitment from the Alliance’s data suppliers has allowed us to establish a substantial track record of public reporting and helped Washington become recognized as a national leader in health care transparency.
We are pleased to have PSE and SEIU 775 Benefits Group join us as we continue to grow our APCD and improve health care reporting in Washington state.
