Division of Health Care Finance and Policy Acting Commissioner Seena Perumal Carrington

DHCFP is hosting a series of public forums on May 2nd, May 13th, and May 20th regarding the all-payer claims database (APCD) to engage in candid discussions and seek specific feedback that will help us refine our work and develop additional policies.  I encourage you to register today.

While we hope each of you will join our discussion, we also invite you to send us your comments and questions about the APCD in advance of our forums to help us structure the discussion.  We want to make sure that these conversations are as useful and meaningful to you as they are to us.  Please feel free to email your questions and comments to Young Joo (young.joo@state.ma.us) or simply leave a comment in our blog.

Please note that our blog has moved to a new space within the Executive Office of Health and Human Services. To read this post in its entirety, please visit and bookmark the Health Care section of the Commonwealth Conversations: Health and Human Services blog.
