CIVHC periodically publishes Data Bytes, quick snippets of CO APCD data pertinent to the current health care landscape. This Data Byte evaluates the impact of firearm injuries in Colorado in terms of volume and types of claims and the associated cost to the health care system. Trend information is also available and shows that Colorado has had a significant increase since 2012 in both the volume of claims and associated costs related to firearm injuries.
