“Oklahoma All Payer All Provider Claims Database Act”
SB1005 instructs the Insurance Department to develop policy regarding the collection of health care data and is authorized to share information and data with Oklahoma universities as well as other state public agencies for the purposes of conducting research, policy analysis and preparation of reports describing the performance of the health care delivery system from public, private and quasi-public entities.
The Department may contract with an organization experienced in health care data collection to collect the data from the health care payers and administrators in order to build and maintain the database.
The following entities shall file health care data with the Insurance Department as prescribed by the Department:
1. State-regulated commercial group insurance plans;
2. Employer-sponsored plans; and
3. Third-party administrators.
There are privacy and security standards and concerns with such a database, we have seen in other states and with the federal government’s idea to create such a database. The bill is in its early stages and is rather vague on the data to be collected and to who will have access to the data.
