Utah Health Data Committee

Utah Health Data Committee

The Utah Health Data Committee is created by the laws of the State of Utah.  Members are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the senate.

The law requires members to have experience with health data. Members represent various perspectives from industry and community – public health, purchasers, providers, payers, and patients.

The committee meets at least quarterly and its activities and actions are governed by a set of bylaws adopted by the committee: Health Data Committee Bylaws

Meetings of the committee are open to the public.

Mission Statement (Adopted 1994, Amended 2002):

The mission of the Utah Health Data Committee is to support health improvement initiatives through the collection, analysis, and public release of health care information.

Through public-private collaboration, the Committee will participate in the development and implementation of a statewide health data reporting system capable of providing accurate and independently validated information in a timely way.

The Committee will implement policies to transform data into objective baseline, trend, and performance measurement information, which will be made available to all legitimate users without compromising patient privacy and confidentiality.
