Virginia All-Payer Claims Database; creation. Establishes the Virginia All-Payer Claims Database system, in order to facilitate data-driven, evidence-based improvements in access, quality, and cost of health care through understanding of health care expenditure patterns and operation and performance of the health care system. Data shall be made publicly available in a form that protects the identity of individual patients. The bill also creates the Advisory Board on Health Care Data Reporting to assist the Board of Health in developing regulations implementing the All-Payer Claims Database. Upon promulgation of final regulations implementing the Database, the existing statute dealing with the current survey of health carriers subject to HEDIS reporting is repealed. Read the Bill »
