Manifest MedEx’s May Webinar – Data Exchange Framework Updates: Available Grants and QHIOs

Save the date for our upcoming webinar on Wednesday, May 10 from 12 pm – 1:00 pm PT.

The CalHHS Data Exchange Framework (DxF) comprises a single Data Sharing Agreement (DSA) and common set of Policies and Procedures (P&Ps) that will govern the exchange of health and social services information among health care entities and government agencies beginning January 31, 2024.

Most healthcare organizations are required to share health information by 2024, and more than 1,400 organizations have signed the DSA!

To provide direct support to DSA Signatories to meet their data sharing requirements, CalHHS will be administering up to $47M in funding through DSA Signatory Grants to subsidize their implementation efforts. The CalHHS grant program offers two different types of grants that can be used to onboard Manifest MedEx.

There will be at least three rounds of DSA Signatory Grants in 2023. The CalHHS Center for Insight and Innovation (CDII) expects to accept applications for each round per the following schedule:

• Round 1 (expedited): mid-May to mid-June
• Round 2 (expedited): mid-June to mid-July
• Round 3: July to September

Manifest MedEx is working to become a QHIO in the coming months. In this webinar, we will review the DSA Signatory Grant program, including the process for applying for either a “QHIO Onboarding Grant” or “Technical Assistance Grant” that can help cover the costs of partnering with Manifest MedEx to meet your DxF data sharing requirements.
