Addressing food insecurity often requires coordination between health and social service providers, but complex data privacy laws complicate care coordination. The State of California created the State Health Information Guidance Volume 2 to help remove some of those barriers by standardizing and clarify federal and state health information sharing laws. During this webinar, attendees will learn about the new guidance and hear about the steps health centers are taking to coordinate care to address food insecurity. The webinar is being held to promote the California Office of Health Information Integrity’s new state guidance on health information sharing to address food insecurity.

Learning Objectives:

Identify one or more health information privacy law(s) that govern information exchange between health and nutrition providers
Identify patient information that can be exchanged within current federal and state health information sharing laws
Apply the knowledge to exchange information with social service providers with and without patient authorization to share
