The California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) provides confidential patient-level data sets to eligible hospitals and health departments. California Licensed Hospitals and Local Health Departments are eligible to request Limited Data Set versions of OSHPD’s patient-level data. The 2004 law that allows for the release of these data was Assembly Bill 2876 (AB 2876), Health and Safety Code Section 128766.
