On-line HCUP Overview Course
The On-line HCUP Overview Course is an interactive, modular course that provides information about HCUP data, software tools and products.
Welcome to the On-line HCUP Overview Course!

HCUP has developed a free, interactive course, which is available on-line. Once launched, the self-administered course provides an overview of the data, software tools and products of the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project. The course covers the features, capabilities and potential uses of HCUP resources. Included is information on where and how to access the data and tools, and technical support. The on–line course is modular, so you can either move through the entire course, or access exactly those data resources, tools or products in which you are most interested.

To launch the course, please click on one of the links below. There are two versions of the course. The Interactive version has audio and images throughout the course. As an alternative, you may access a text version of the course by clicking on the Section 508-Compliant version of the course.

If you are having difficulty, please contact for assistance or call HCUP User Support at 1-866-290-HCUP.
