Use Data to Answer Health Care Questions

One of CIVHC’s primary goals is to increase transparency through data analytics and reports to support improving care and lowering costs in Colorado. We have several data focus areas that help consumers, communities, organizations, policy makers and other stakeholders shop for care and identify ways to make positive health care changes.

  • Shop for Care: Search prices and quality at different facilities for common procedures and imaging tests
  • Cost of Care: Find out how much is spent on health care per person in your area compared to the rest of Colorado
  • Condition Prevalence: Identify which areas of Colorado have higher rates of chronic conditions like diabetes and asthma
  • Low Value Care: Identify the services Coloradans are receiving that have the highest potential for harm, are likely wasteful and costs associated with that care
  • Out-of-Network Services: Access in-network payments in support of Colorado legislation to reduce surprise billing
  • Medicare Reference-Based Pricing: Understand commercial health insurance payments across Colorado as a percent of Medicare payments
  • Quality Measures: Locate areas across the state where care quality of care provided exceeds other areas
  • Utilization of Services: Explore how use of hospital and outpatient services, pharmacy fills, ER visits and more varies across Colorado
