Community Information Exchange Task Force

What is Community Information Exchange (CIE)?

Community Information Exchange (CIE) is a localized effort to create and sustain the technology and relationships required to support Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) needs of both individual and community. CIE maximizes a person-centered approach by ensuring social care information is collected only as needed and is stored safely. CIE also promotes streamlined access to health enhancing non-clinical services (e.g., social services and supports), helping to coordinate care across a variety of clinical and non-clinical partners, while using data on existing community resources, needs, and gaps to drive policy change.

About the CIE Task Force

The CIE Task Force brings together community-based organizations (CBOs), heath care, health IT, and governmental entities whose aligned work and interests are best served by a coordinated approach to CIE. This task Force will develop a statewide blueprint for CIE, honoring that coordinated care and health equity, supported by electronic exchange of information, is vital to improving the overall health and well-being of individuals.
