NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
This rule is authorized by Subsection 26-33a-104(1) to "direct a statewide effort to collect, analyze, and distribute health care data to facilitate the promotion and accessibility of quality and cost-effective health care and also to facilitate interaction among those with concern for health care issues".
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
The Office of Health Care Statistics has not received any written comments since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule. Only general inquires have been made and responded to by the Office. On 09/12/2017, the Health Data Committee voted to extend Rule R428-13.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
This rule establishes a performance measurement data collection and reporting system for health carriers licensed in the state of Utah. The data is needed to promote informed consumer choice in health carrier selection and measure the quality of care provided by Utah health carriers. The broad uses of the data and reports are justifications for continuation of the rule.
