As you know, many providers will be required to submit clinical summary files to the statewide Clinical Data Repository (CDR) starting February 2017. The Health Care Authority, the lead state agency for this effort, would like to gather further information about any additional costs providers are facing to help us measure the scope of these impacts and research additional supports to help offset the identified costs. Please take 5 minutes to complete the survey listed below.
