In 2008, the Department of Finance and Administration convened the "Health Quality Initiative", a state and private sector stakeholder group, to discuss how best to measure and report health quality data. The group met for approximately a year before the Division of Health Planning proposed the APCD as a solution. Legislation was drafted with the input of stakeholders and passed in June 2009. Data collection began in the summer of 2010 and is ongoing.
