About the Agency


Two things distinguish CHIA in our pursuit of improving the Massachusetts health care system: our public-interest perspective, and our unique data sets. Our perspective is rooted in our independence – our agenda and findings are not colored by the special interests of industry or politics – and in the talents and commitment of CHIA employees.

Our data sets are unique because as the state agency responsible for a number of health care statistics, we have the ability to collect information necessary to fulfill this responsibility.
