Provisions govern the implementation of California’s APCD. It is the intent of the Legislature in enacting this chapter to establish a system to collect information regarding health care costs, utilization, quality, and equity. Health care data is reported and collected through many disparate systems. Creating a process to aggregate and use this data will provide greater transparency regarding health care costs, utilization, quality, and equity, and the information may be used to inform policy decisions regarding the provision of quality health care, improving public health, reducing disparities, advancing health coverage, reducing health care costs, oversight of the health care system and health care companies, and providing public benefit for Californians and the state, while preserving consumer privacy.
