  • CO APCD Administration
  • Shouldn’t the CO APCD be run by a public entity that is subject to accountability standards like sunshine laws, the Open Records Act, or the scrutiny of state auditors since they are in charge of very sensitive health care data?

On the contrary, CIVHC is subject to public oversight in a variety of ways. CIVHC was designated as the CO APCD Administrator by the Department of Health Care Policy and Finance (HCPF), acting with the authority granted to it under the CO APCD statute. HCPF itself is subject to the type of oversight indicated above. CIVHC is subject to HCPF’s rulemaking authority with respect to the CO APCD, including how and to whom data may be released, as well as minimum requirements for who must be appointed to the Data Release Review Committee.
