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

About

The working group currently has two areas of focus:

Sex and Gender Working Group

Our meetings have been moved to the fourth Tuesday of month. Our next meeting is January 26th, 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.

Join 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.

Planning Project

The GSSO action plan from our CIHR planning project is now posted under the Documents section.

In 2020 conducted a series of monthly consultation sessions. From these sessions we developed an action plan to modernize gender, sex and sexual orientatioon (GSSO) information practices in digital and electronic health records (EHRs).

Our questions were:

  1. What are the current approaches to GSSO practices in EHRs?
  2. What are the gaps, issues/needs and challenges with current approaches?
  3. How should one define GSSO information practices in EHRs?
  4. What are your suggested actions to modernize sex and gender information practices in EHRs?

To find out more about this project see all the Planning Project documents.
