The CIE Data Equity Framework - CIE San Diego

Leveraging Community Information Exchanges for Equitable and Inclusive Data

211/CIE San Diego is pleased to share Leveraging Community Information Exchanges for Equitable and Inclusive Data, a suite of three resources that inform early planning and community member engagement efforts for institutions building Community Information Exchanges (CIEs)®.

Organizations, communities, and institutions are encouraged to use this resource to initiate and inform conversations around building social and health data systems with an equity and anti-racism lens. As a counterpart to the CIE Toolkit, A Vision for the Future provides insight on the value of the CIE as an approach to person-centered multisector data sharing, with special focus on the CIE vision, value, and the impact it can have on the health and well-being of individuals and communities. This paper walks through the CIE model, including the tenets that guide the intention of the model, fundamental approaches that drive all aspects of CIE visioning, planning, design, and implementation, and core components that are critical to a CIE’s infrastructure. The CIE Data Equity Framework was developed to help identify challenges and promote opportunities to build data systems that are not structurally racist, using CIEs as examples. Through encouraging dialogue on the design of data sharing systems that drive change and center the most impacted populations, we intend for the CIE Data Equity Framework to guide institutions away from reinforcing systems that perpetuate harmful practices and towards building anti-racist systems that empower communities. The System Design Planning and Reflection Worksheet weaves the concepts presented in the Data Equity Framework into a strategic visioning exercise that guides institutions through the reflective process of building antiracist systems that champion equity.

We’d like to extend a special acknowledgement and thank you to Dr. Rhea Boyd and our colleagues at Health Leads who co-authored the CIE Data Equity Framework, our colleagues and partners who reviewed and provided additional perspectives on all of these resources, and to our CIE Ambassadors for asking critical questions that inspired, challenged, and guided this work. We honor and appreciate the important work done every day to improve the lives of all people and populations.

These resources were produced with funding support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Our grant from RWJF helped to deepen understanding of public health data system issues and to highlight promising practices and case examples of innovation in public health data systems. Click here to learn more. 

Two Part Webinar Series: Moving From Antiracism

Intention To Action

The challenges associated with confronting and eliminating structural racism are extensive and require intentional reflection and correction of the processes and systems that harm communities. This webinar series focuses on the CIE Data Equity Framework, an innovative tool that can be used to guide institutions and individuals towards creating more equitable and inclusive systems that support overall well-being and positive health outcomes for their communities.

Part One: Data Equity Framework: Designing Equitable and Inclusive Systems
November 17th, 12:00-1:00 PM ET/9:00-10:00 AM PT

Experts will review the CIE Data Equity Framework, highlighting the design and key drivers that can move institutions towards building anti-racist systems that empower communities.
