The Data Governance Collaborative (DGC) at MHDC is a collaboration between payer and provider organizations convened to discuss, design, and implement better ways to standardize and share health related data. The DGC incorporates industry standards and automation as much as possible for exchange among payers, providers, patients/members, and other interested parties who need this data.

The DGC regularly holds deep dives into specific topics related to health data and interoperability. These meetings are public and bring the community together to look at data collected, industry workflows, and improvements that could be made related to data standardization and interoperability. 

The next DGC deep dive will cover social determinants of health (SDOH) data. This is a large topic and we do not anticipate covering everything in one meeting. This first meeting will focus on the current state of data collection and workflows. After a brief look at industry efforts like the Gravity Project, we will look at how and what information gets collected, existing exchange of this data, referral processes and actions taken, and how the data loop gets closed now (if it does).

We do not anticipate focusing on future needs or additional data desired at this time rather, as previously mentioned, we expect this to be the first of several conversations on the topic. We look forward to your help gathering information about the current state of SDOH data within healthcare organizations. Please join us.
