Effective September 3, 2013, Health Information and Strategic Planning (HISP) changed its name to Center for Health Statistics and Informatics (CHSI).

Center for Health Statistics and Informatics (CHSI) is responsible for department-wide initiatives to improve the effectiveness of our work through better health information systems, increased application of epidemiologic methods of analysis, strong liaisons with public health organizations and schools of public health, and effective partnerships with local health agencies and professionals. 

Medical Marijuana Program and New Laws

In 2015, the Legislature passed and the Governor signed into law three bills (Assembly Bills 243 and 266, and Senate Bill 643) that create a licensing and regulatory framework for medical marijuana. For more information please email the Department of Consumer Affairs´ Consumer Information Center at dca@dca.ca.gov or call 1(800) 952-5210.
