Health Care Information
The Oklahoma Health Care Information System is responsible for the development and operation of a method for collecting, processing and disseminating health care data including, but not limited to, quality, expenditure and utilization data. As specified in the Oklahoma Health Care Information System Act, a uniform set of data will be periodically and routinely compiled that makes possible the ongoing analysis, comparison and evaluation of trends in the quality and delivery of health care services in Oklahoma for the purpose of effective health care planning by public and private entities and cost containment.
