Transforming Healthcare Starts with a Connected California

The DxF empowers health entities to provide the best possible care by creating new connections and efficiencies between health and social services entities, improving the completeness of patient records.

Many health entities are required by law to take the first step to joining the DxF by signing the Data Sharing Agreement (DSA)—an agreement to share information quickly, securely, and appropriately while following a common set of terms, conditions, and obligations set forth in shared Policies and Procedures (P&Ps).

If you are involved in the implementation process of the Data Exchange Framework and need additional information on IAC or DSA P&P Subcommittee meetings, visit the CDII DxF Implementation and Guidance website.

Begin Sharing

The DxF will create a more connected, efficient, healthcare system—enabling health and social services to provide the best possible care to the Californians they serve.

Physician practices of fewer than 25 physicians, rehabilitation hospitals, long-term acute care hospitals, acute psychiatric hospitals, critical access hospitals, and rural general acute care hospitals with fewer than 100 beds, state-run acute psychiatric hospitals, and any non-profit clinic with fewer than 10 providers.

The Data Exchange Framework is a giant leap forward for healthcare in California—access to information makes care safer and always serves to enhance quality, enabling providers to deliver the care that patients need.
