Innovation in Data Dissemination Award 2013

In 2013, The Innovation in Data Dissemination Award was presented to Center for Improving Value in Health Care (CIVHC) & Treo Solutions. CIVHC was selected for this award due to their commitment in providing transparent health care data in support of achieving the Triple Aim: better health, better care, and lower cost. In 2010 CIVHC was appointed as the administrator of the CO APCD, and as a nonprofit, CIVHC was able to secure private foundation funding to support the development and implementation of the APCD – a unique model relative to many state-run APCDs. In just a few short months from the time of initial claims data intake, CIVHC and its data manager, Treo Solutions, launched the website The site provides public access to information on total cost of care and utilization of health care services across the state. CIVHC and Treo continue to refine and update the data and reports available through the public website and are committed to ensuring the CO APCD is a beneficial tool for providers, employers, consumers, policy analysts, and others seeking to achieve the Triple Aim.
