Colorado's Center for Improving Value in Healthcare (CIVHC) synthesized data from the All Payer Claims Database (APCD) to map trends in utilization across Colorado from 2012-2015. CIVHC captures data from commercial, Medicaid, and Medicare Advantage patients concerning unplanned hospitalizations, 30-day readmission rates, emergency room visits, and observations stays. Overall trends show an increase in emergency room visits as well as a decrease in observation stays, among other findings.
