The collection of client or patient data is a critical step in systemically documenting and addressing health inequities and disparities. For Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and LGBTQIA+ persons, it is crucial to collect Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) and Race, Ethnicity, and Language (REAL) data to identify potential inequities and disparities in care. Collecting SOGI and REAL data will help providers deliver the best possible care to each client and patient. Rather than making assumptions about an individual’s preferred language, culture, sexual orientation, or gender identity, this data can help tailor care to meet the needs of each client and patient.
Join us for a webinar on Wednesday, 2/22/23 at 10 - 11:30 am PT (1 - 2:30 pm ET, 12 - 1:30 pm CT, 11 am - 12:30 pm MT) where presenters will outline the landscape of SOGI and REAL data collection, and how certain settings like county behavioral health departments and community health centers have been collecting SOGI and REAL data to advance health equity efforts for their clients and patients.
