Event description

Description

This year’s state budget included $60 million for the creation of the Healthcare Cost Transparency Database, an all-payer claims database (APCD) for California. The successful design and implementation of the database could lead to a better understanding of what is driving health care costs across the state; how quality varies among different networks, facilities, and providers; and which factors are contributing to population health issues like the opioid epidemic.

This briefing will bring together representatives from the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development and the National Association of Health Data Organizations to discuss California's new transparency law and design considerations that can help ensure a successful implementation. Speakers from Arkansas, Colorado, and Massachusetts will present lessons learned from the implementation of databases in their own states.

The panel will be moderated by Kristof Stremikis, director of CHCF's Market Analysis and Insight program area.

Speakers are:

  • Scott Christman, Deputy Director and Chief Information Officer, Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development
  • Denise Love, Executive Director, National Association of Health Data Organizations
  • Josephine Porter, Director, Institute for Health Policy and Practice, University of New Hampshire
  • Ana English, President and CEO, Colorado Center for Improving Value in Health Care
  • Craig Wilson, Health Policy Director, Arkansas Center for Health Improvement
  • Deb Schiel, Senior Director of Analytics, Massachusetts Center for Health Information and Analysis

Lunch will be provided.

Those unable to attend in person can sign up to watch the live stream (webcast) or to listen by phone. The event will be recorded and available on the CHCF events page.
