APCD Snapshot
  • Legislation establishing an APCD was passed in 2008. Because the statute did not provide funding for the Department of Health to develop and operate an APCD, the state has mobilized a series of federal grants to support start-up operations. Following the end of these federal grants, the project's four partner agencies -- Medicaid, the Health Insurance Exchange, the Office of the Health Insurance Commissioner, and the Dept. of Health -- will commit funding and staff to the ongoing operations of the APCD.

    The RI APCD will be used to ensure transparency of information about the quality, cost, efficiency, and access of Rhode Island’s healthcare delivery system. It will also provide state agencies and policy makers with the information they need to improve the value of healthcare for Rhode Island residents.

    Data is expected to be available in early 2015.
