To Members of the APCD community:
The new APCD website was launched today!
The website has been streamlined with an eye towards making navigation easier for the two key constituencies of the APCD – the payers (submitters) and the users of the combined data:
- Submitting to the APCD – This section is designed for data submitters and contains regulations, submission guidelines, QA edits, data dictionaries, a submission FAQ, and information related to our monthly Technical Assistance Group (TAG) meetings.
- Accessing the APCD – This section is designed for users who are interested in accessing APCD data. It contains information related to the data release process, including the regulations, application materials, pricing information, data guides, and a data release FAQ. A list of all APCD applications can also be found here, as well as information on the Data Release Committee. Information about our monthly APCD workgroups is also available in this section.
The updated website is the place to find general information about the APCD as well as all APCD announcements, news, and updates. We’ve also created a calendar so you can easily locate information about future APCD events.
We expect to add new content to the website on a regular basis particularly as our user community grows. Visitors can still access the page through www.mass.gov/chia/apcd. Please be sure to update any other bookmarks you had pointing to our former pages.
We look forward to a productive and engaging year with our APCD stakeholders.
