NC Integrated Data for Researchers

Study Overview


North Carolina Integrated Data for Researchers (NCIDR) is a research data warehouse that integrates mental health data from four sources in the state of North Carolina. One source is Medicaid claims and enrollment data for individuals with mental health, developmental disability, or substance abuse diagnoses. The Integrated Payment and Reporting System includes mental health services for those people that are not eligible for Medicaid. The Healthcare Enterprise Accounts Receivable Tracking System (HEARTS) tracks services provided by inpatient mental health facilities run by the state. Lastly, Piedmont Behavioral Health includes data from a managed care organization serving five counties within North Carolina. NCIDR covers the state fiscal years from 2008-2011, and claims, client, and provider data sets are available for each year.
