The LifeLink™ Health Plan Claims Database contains data from over 98 different managed care organizations. It consists of more than 6 million patients and has over four billion claims lines. New information from underlying contributors is accepted on up to a monthly basis, with many contributors now providing monthly additions to the data. Symmetry Health Data Systems' Episodes Treatment Groups (ETGs) is one method that LifeLink™ Health Plan Claims Database uses to analyze data, and many of its output variables are included in a LifeLink Health Plan Claims data extract.
UAMS faculty and students may apply to obtain access to the data free of charge to support exploratory research. Additional information and application information can be found at the link below.
