Summary: When our research and writing are cited as major sources of knowledge, we are both proud and humbled. So when we noticed we were getting a lot of traffic from a think-tank in Ohio, we scurried on over to their web page, to notice that we are being cited as an expert on the all-payer claims database phenomenon. This page, from the Health Policy Institute of Ohio, an Ohio research organization on health issues, lists resources for understanding the APCD: Our research is there in good company, along with research from the Network for Excellence in Health Innovation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. (On this screenshot, my piece is listed first; the second one is NEHI and the third is the RWJF piece.)
