Utah All Payer Claims Database (APCD) uses the 3M Clinical Risk Group (CRG) software to show clinically-meaningful categories using diagnoses, procedures, and prescriptions from medical and pharmacy claims. This enables users to make risk-adjusted comparisons of people with specific health conditions and reflect on which conditions are the biggest burdens to the healthcare system. Data from 2014 is utilized for this Utah health status update.
