Rethinking Systems Design:

Moving Toward Equity

AUGUST 11, 2021
8:30-10:30 AM PST

The challenge of advancing a more community-driven, person-centered approach to multi-sector care coordination has been compounded by the inherent state of systemic racism and inequities rooted within all elements of society. In anticipation of the 4th Annual CIE Summit, this Special Session will introduce critical components of system design and Community Information Exchange (CIE) principles that underscore the importance of leading with community to drive systems change.

The session will challenge our understanding of a CIE and explore how community-driven solutions can thrive under a clear and ongoing commitment to equity and anti-racism. Together, we will aim to:

  • Define equity and anti-racism in the context of multi-sector data sharing.
  • Explore antiracist and equitable frameworks as it relates to public health and data systems.
  • Learn the tenets, fundamental elements, and core components of the Community Information Exchange model.
  • Apply presented concepts to communities in various stages of CIE planning, design, and implementation.
