CO APCD Data User Resources

At times, working with claims data can feel like something more akin to an art than a science. Data layouts and elements that don’t always match up with other health information technology combined with unpredictable submissions and an ever-changing data warehouse can require skills forged through experience. We hope that the resources below can help. If you have questions or suggestions for information to be included, please email

The Data Discovery Log documents data quality items identified following file submission and processing, enhancement and loading of data into the CO APCD.

As CIVHC works to measure and define what is in the CO APCD,  it is necessary to take into account the near constant growing and changing nature of the database. The reports below contain point-in-time information, capturing the CO APCD at a certain moment and measuring what it includes.
