Supplier Diversity Program: New System for July 1 Report — Participant Information

Program originally recorded May 20, 2022.

California hospitals with operating expenses over a specified amount are required to submit a report annually to the Department of Health Care Access and Information (HCAI)* on their minority, women, LGBT, and disabled veteran business enterprise procurement efforts.

For the report, due July 1, 2022, HCAI has developed a new reporting program, the Hospital Disclosures and Compliance (HDC) System. This program will allow hospitals to submit reports electronically and will be ready for hospitals to start using on June 1, 2022. Sharon Takhar, from HCAI’s Hospital Disclosures Compliance Unit, Information Services Division, will review the program and demonstrate the e-online application’s features, offer guidance and field questions.

Who should attend?

*HCAI is formerly known as the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD).

This webinar will explain and interpret the statute and what it means to qualifying hospitals to achieve compliance or remain compliant.
