Since 2010, FHC has supported the Rhode Island Quality Institute and the Rhode Island Department of Health with strategic planning, subject matter expertise and project management for the Rhode Island All Payer Claims Database (RI-APCD).
FHC’s knowledge, expertise and on-the-ground project management assisted the RI-APCD in achieving all statutory and operational milestones required to begin full implementation by 2013 – ahead of schedule and budget. FHC has since overseen a streamlined process for data collection and aggregation, facilitated three separate vendor procurement processes for data aggregation and analytics vendors, overseen transmission of data extracts, and helped the State navigate every fork in the road along the way.
Today, FHC continues to serve as the RI-APCD project manager, subject matter expert, and technical consultant as the State continues to operate the RI-APCD and builds a financial sustainability model for the program.
