Welcome to the Arkansas All-Payer Claims Database (APCD)

There is a growing demand and need for transparency of healthcare information in Arkansas to promote high-value care and advance research. Consumers, employers, and policymakers are advocating for greater reporting on the prices of healthcare services as a way to encourage consumers to choose low-cost, high-quality providers and to promote competition based on value. The Arkansas All-Payer Claims Database (APCD) is a dynamic tool that will enable the state to further its transparency objectives by collecting healthcare data from public and private sources and empowering Arkansans with information to better understand how and where healthcare is being delivered and how much is being spent. Please see the “How to Use the APCD Website” box below to learn how to navigate the Arkansas APCD website.
