The Story of San Diego’s Community Health Information Exchange: Data Sharing, Care Coordination, and Population Health
This learning guide was prepared by San Diego Health Connect in conjunction with AcademyHealth as part of the Community Health Peer Learning Program.
This learning guide, part of a series developed by the Community Health Peer Learning Program's subject matter expert communities, focuses on San Diego’s experience in building a community Health Information Exchange (HIE) and the realities of embarking on a broad community collaboration to achieve better data sharing.
Executive Director Dan Chavez and Management Consultant Mark Branning, both of San Diego Health Connect, in partnership with Christy Rosenberg, Director of Be There San Diego, outline eight recommendations based on their lessons learned, from selection of technical architecture to handling consent, managing community information assets, and more.
Supporting materials to the full learning guide include:
- An executive summary of the guide
- A one-pager focusing on implementation of a community HIE
- The below webinar recording, which features experts from San Diego Health Connect providing an overview of the guide and outlining key steps in community collaboration to achieve better data sharing
