CHIA

The Center for Healthcare Information Analysis (CHIA) is an independent agency that serves as the commonwealth’s primary hub for healthcare data and a key source of healthcare analytics that support state healthcare policy development. MHA works collaboratively with CHIA and other agencies to improve efficiency in the collection, dissemination and use of healthcare data and to promote administrative simplification.
The Massachusetts growth rate for total healthcare spending was 2.8% for 2016, well below the state benchmark of 3.6%, according to a new report from the state’s Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA).
