Data Consortium


ABOUT THE DATA CONSORTIUM:

The Data Consortium was chartered by the KHPA Board in April of 2006 to:

  • Guide KHPA in the management of programmatic and non-programmatic health data.
  • Ensure continued public support and investment in the use of this data to advance health policy.
  • Disseminate the wealth of data, in partnership with stakeholders.
  • Ask and answer important health policy questions pertaining to affordability of health care, quality of health care and the health status of Kansans.

The Kansas Health Data Consortium – a multi-stakeholder advisory committee of key government agencies, hospitals, physicians, insurers, purchasers, and consumers – was chartered by the KHPA Board in April 2006 and has been convening regularly since December 2007 to offer guidance on collection, management, analysis, and dissemination of programmatic and non-programmatic health data to a broad audience of policy-makers, consumers, providers, and researchers, with the mission of leveraging the State’s rich collection of health data for health reform via data-driven policy.
