Improving Health through Data

At the Center for Health Care Data (CHCD), our mission is to make health data accessible, accurate, and actionable for Texas and beyond. We analyze health data to find opportunities to improve systems that can make an impact. We provide access to data and our expertise so that clinicians, researchers, policymakers, and other knowledge-seekers can advocate for individuals to make more informed, healthier choices.

We are the largest data center of our kind in Texas. Our researchers and data analysts can assist you in various ways from organizing and categorizing data for easier use to study design, analytics, and manuscript writing.

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) designated the CHCD as a Qualified Entity. It allows the use of Medicare Parts A, B, and D claims data to promote transparency in healthcare delivery. In addition, the CHCD has been named the administrator of the new Texas All-Payor Claims Database (TX-APCD). The TX-APCD will use data from payors throughout Texas to provide information on healthcare prevalence, incidence, cost, quality, and other related topics.
