HCCI Announces New Academic Research Partnership

The Health Care Cost Institute (HCCI) has signed letters of intent with 10 leading research, actuarial, and government organizations to license access to HCCI’s detailed claims data from over 50 million privately insured Americans for faculty, association and government research studies and PhD dissertations. As part of the partnership, HCCI is forming an academic research advisory panel with representatives from each participating institution.

Dartmouth College, University of Minnesota, Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, University of Pennsylvania, University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, and Yale University, along with the American Academy of Actuaries, Society of Actuaries, the Congressional Budget Office, and MedPAC will be in HCCI’s first group of Academic Research Partners. Our partners will have academic institutional access to HCCI’s large private claims database for three years to further health care research and better understand what drives health spending and use of services.
