Event Details:

Monday, December 15, 2014 | 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm ET

The Institute of Medicine has recommended routinely collecting sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) data from patients to help end lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender invisibility in health care as well to measure quality and progress in eliminating disparities. In addition, a growing number of federal agencies are using or testing SOGI questions in surveys; for example, HRSA is including gender identity questions in the upcoming 2014 Health Center Patient Survey. In this webinar, Dr. Harvey Makadon of the National LGBT Health Education Center will focus on the rationale for collecting SOGI data, including health care inequalities faced by LGBT people, as well as the practical steps to implementing data collection within the electronic health record (EHR). Chris Grasso, MPH, the Associate Director for Informatics & Data Services at Fenway Health will then describe ways to collect SOGI information and incorporate it into the EHR.
