Welcome to the Massachusetts Health Data Consortium

The year 2013 was a momentous year because it marked the Consortium’s 35th year as the trusted convener of health care  organizations statewide. In 2014, we remain dedicated to our mission to enhance the value of collaboration in using health information and technology to achieve and sustain improvements in health quality, cost, and effectiveness.

This will be an eventful year for the Consortium as we increase the breadth and depth of our service offerings to members. Our forums, work groups, webinars, and presentations will address the myriad innovations in technology, data and analytics, health care delivery, finance, and public policy that will advance the value of health care in the Commonwealth for years to come.

2014 also will bring enormous challenges to members of our Consortium. 

Consortium Members are addressing one such challenge with  the launch of the CTP (Collaborative Testing Program) to assist in meeting the October deadline for implementation of ICD-10, the upgraded and substantially more complex diagnostic coding framework for providers, health plans, and their trading partners.

A second challenge will be in meeting the “triple aim” of accountable care – to improve the health of the population, the health care of each individual, and the affordability of health care.

To assist our members in meeting these challenges, MHDC is organizing and facilitating the Consortium ICD-10 Implementation Project and Accountable Care Series, two strategic initiatives endorsed by our Board of Directors and CIO Forum.

Our Consortium’s success and our ambitious plans for this year would not be possible without the continued support of our provider, health plan, government, association, and service provider members.

Thank you.
David Szabo  Denny Brennan 
Chairman of the Board  Executive Director
