MCA Cost Data, NDEs Have Moved
MCA (formerly DSS) cost data and NDEs are no longer available on Austin. They now reside within CDW.
VA data, including HERC data, are currently in transition to the VA Corporate Data Warehouse (CDW), a national VA data repository. The National Data Systems (NDS) oversees the request and approval process through the Data Access Request Tracker (DART) system. For more information on data available at CDW and the current request procedures, please see the VHA Data Portal (VA intranet site - contact HERC for the url).
HERC is a national center located in Menlo Park, CA that assists VA researchers in assessing the cost-effectiveness of medical care, evaluating the efficiency of VA programs and providers, and conducting high-quality health economics research.
