The process of asking all patients about their sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) empowers health centers to get to know their patients better, and to provide them with the culturally responsive, patient-centered services they need. SOGI data collection also allows health centers to learn about the populations they are serving, and to measure the quality of care provided to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
This guide was designed to help your health center successfully collect SOGI data, no matter where you are in the process. For those just beginning, the guide can be used from start to finish. If you already have a system, but have encountered challenges and questions, this guide can help you address them. Even if your system is working smoothly, you will find resources and recommendations here that will help you move to the next level of data collection and analysis. [Summary adapted from resource.]
