Canadians working together to modernize Canada’s sex and gender information practices in digital health.

About

The working group currently has two current areas of focus:

Sex and Gender Working Group

Our meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Our next meeting is on August 24th, 2021 at 9am PT/12pm ET.

Bring your knowledge and experience to this working group to develop an implementation strategy to modernize sex and gender information practices in EHR systems in Canada. The scope will include:

  • Expanding the definition, collection, use and sharing of sex-gender info in EHRs
  • Summarizing current practices, gaps and challenges
  • Proposing an action plan to modernize sex-gender info practices in Canada.

Register for the the monthly working group meeting on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 12 noon ET.

*Note: Group icon represents different sex and gender identities but is not inclusive.

We are also taking part in the HL7 Gender Harmony project that is underway.

MSFHR REACH Project

Our meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month. Our next meeting is on August 10th, 2021 at 9am PT/ 12 pm ET.

The focus will be on Digital Health Systems. This will include exploring issues of technical specifications, multi-level GSSO data and interoperability, and secondary date use.

Our REACH project, funded through the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (MSFHR), is building on our prior work in developing an action plan to Modernize Gender, Sex, and Sexual Orientation Documentation in Canadian Electronic Health Records.

In our REACH project, we will be sharing and discussing how the Action Plan can address the needs of sexual and gender minority patients and co-creating knowledge tools for future implementation of modernized gender, sex and sexual orientation documentation practices.

The Action Plan to modernize gender, sex and sexual orientation (GSSO) information practices in digital and electronic health records (EHRs) was developed from a series of monthly consultation sessions that were held in 2020. Files from this initial CIHR Planning Project can be found here.

Register for the monthly REACH meeting on the second Tuesday of the month at 12 noon ET.
