Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people face many health disparities and stigma in health care. Despite this, LGBT people remain largely invisible to their providers. Collecting sexual orientation and gender identity (SO/GI) data of new and returning patients is critical for health centers and other health care organizations to provide a welcoming, inclusive environment of care; and to provide high-quality care to all patients. This webinar will teach participants how to recognize and address  SO/GI data issues from the electronic health record. Chris Grasso, Associate Director of Director for Informatics & Data Services at the Fenway Institute will share her experience with data quality checks at Fenway Health. At the end of the session, participants will have the tools to monitor SO/GI data collected from their own EHRs.
