REAL/SOGI Demographic Data Collection Initiative
In conjunction with the Penn Medicine Academy, CHEA developed and implemented centralized online training coupled with marketing materials to raise awareness of these new data fields and why and how to complete the fields. CHEA’s ongoing efforts for optimization of initiative are underway in an iterative process where we engage with partners across the health system. Recent efforts include implementing self-entry of data via the patient portal MyPennMedicine, monitoring uptake of data and determining best practices in hot spots, analyzing workflows to determine second phase education and training opportunities, and identifying previously hidden populations that have emerged due to new demographic data fields.
