CHA is reminding members that hospital supplier diversity reports for calendar year 2022 are due on July 1.
Under Health and Safety Code Section 1339.85-1339.87, hospitals with operating expenses of $50 million or more, and licensed hospitals with operating expenses of $25 million or more that are part of a hospital system, are required to submit a report each year on their minority, women, LGBT, and disabled veteran business enterprise procurement efforts to the Department of Health Care Access and Information (HCAI), which is responsible for developing and administering the program to collect and post the hospital supplier diversity reports.
Hospitals are required to input vendor information via the Hospital Disclosures and Compliance (HDC) System, which allows hospitals to submit reports electronically. It is important to remember that HCAI will not accept emailed reports. If you have any questions about the system or the Hospital Supplier Diversity program, email firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, if your hospital needs a 30-day extension, the request must be submitted via the system.
If you have any questions, please contact Trina A. Gonzalez, vice president, policy, at email@example.com.
