Health plans are required to submit provider technology adoption information to
the Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA) as part of the All-Payer Claims Database initiative (114.5 CMR 21.00 in accordance with M.G.L. c. 118G).1
CHIA is the Massachusetts state agency created to support transparency
and increase quality and efficiency in the health care delivery system.
In an effort to assist health plans to collect provider technology adoption
information and to avoid duplicate data requests, HealthCare Administrative
Solutions (HCAS) developed this website to collect provider information to
comply with the state requirement and to assess provider technology use in the
state. Providers are asked to complete the survey below. The information
provided will be submitted to the Center for Health Information and Analysis and
to the health plans you designate at the end of the survey.
