The Center for Health Information and Analysis is requesting responses to a procurement opportunity to analyze APCD data for the Cost Trends 2013: Utilization report. As part of the Cost Trends 2013 series, the Utilization report will detail trends in costs and utilization of health services in several major categories (inpatient services, outpatient services, professional services, prescription drugs, etc.). Although similar to projects undertaken in the past, this analysis is particularly exciting as it will be a dedicated product of the APCD. As such, the Center is seeking an analytic vendor with which to contract in order to prepare and analyze APCD extracts for this report.
The RFR can be accessed on the COMM-PASS website, at
The RFR will be open from Friday, January 11, 2013 to Wednesday, February 20, 2013. Bidders will have the opportunity to submit questions until Wednesday, February 6, 2013.
We look forward to reviewing responses and, once selected, working closely with our contractors to ensure the development of a final product with critical importance.
