California is at a moment of opportunity with ambitious goals to improve health equity and achieve “A Healthy California for All” — goals that will require robust health data infrastructure and will fundamentally change the way healthcare is delivered in our state. This kind of infrastructure transformation, while desperately needed and the right thing to do, is, simply put, not easy. As we look to 2023, here are a few things to watch as we go through our growing pains together:
- California’s AB 133 and Data Exchange Framework kick into high gear
- CalAIM’s new Population Health Management Service goes live
- Modernizing public health data infrastructure for precision public health
- Federal impact: Qualified Health Information Networks are on the horizon. What can we expect?
In addition to these key advancements, there are many other unknowns: how much funding will be available for health data infrastructure, impacts of the midterm elections on health policy, and future directions of value-based care arrangements, to name a few. 2023 is shaping up to be another busy year as we work to build California’s health data ecosystem.
