Join the IHPI Data & Methods Hub team as they provide an introduction to the OptumInsight claims database. This data resource, available to all IHPI members, provides access to insurance claims data from 61 million unique patients spanning the years 2001 through June 2015. Optum is part of the research arm of UnitedHealthcare insurance. 

In this discussion we will be covering the data structure and file layout, advantages and limitations of these data, an example study, and the access process.

Open to all IHPI members and analysts.
