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. Please explore our site and learn more about CHIA. Maybe start with our recent publications or learn about our mission and history.
CHIA's mission is to be the agency of record for Massachusetts health care information, to responsibly steward sensitive and confidential data, and to objectively report reliable and meaningful information about the quality, affordability, utilization, access, and outcomes of the Massachusetts health care system.
