On Oct. 4, the former Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) officially launched its new name — the Department of Health Care Access and Information (HCAI) — and an updated website

This name change is a result of the 2021-22 state budget, which recast and renamed the department. According to HCAI, it will continue to be managed by the same leadership and staff and will manage all of the same programs. Of note, the state budget included a number of augmentations in health workforce programs at the newly named department.
