Community Information Exchange San Diego Launches Pilot, Secures $1 Million Expansion Grant, and Becomes a "Live Well San Diego" Partner
Date:12/10/2014

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- CIE San Diego has launched an innovative trust network and collaboration catalyst that provides the connective tissue that enhances care coordination among social service and care providers by enabling them to easily share client-level information; earned a second $1 million grant from the Alliance Healthcare Foundation to expand to organizations serving seniors aging in community and; will be recognized as a "Live Well San Diego" partner on December 11th 4-6p.

CIE San Diego today announced the go-live of one of the first social service information exchanges in the United States.  Consistent with the National Institute of Medicine's (IOM) recent recommendation to include social and behavioral determinants in electronic health records (EHRs), the CIE network offers a more holistic view of a client's social history and makes it easier for case managers, intake/discharge coordinators to connect with other care providers.  In its initial phase, CIE San Diego is sharing information among community based organizations, government, and healthcare organizations to enhance care coordination on behalf of vulnerable populations such as homeless individuals and seniors.  Ultimately, CIE San Diego aims to strengthen the non-profit sector by creating a comprehensive social service information exchange that will facilitate inter-agency collaboration.  By building the data sharing capacity of hundreds of diverse organizations, CIE San Diego hopes to serve as a model that can be adapted to other regions across the United States. 

With more comprehensive information more readily available, nonprofit professionals can smooth care transitions more efficiently, perceive changes in client well-being more rapidly, and intervene with more collaborative programs—all of which can improve the client care experience while reducing system-wide costs and improving the health of populations.  "No matter how robust our systems are, what we know about our clients is limited to only those things we can collect," said Diane Stumph, President and CEO of St. Vincent de Paul Village.  "With the new information CIE San Diego puts at our fingertips, we hope to eliminate many of those blind spots and provide smarter, better informed service to more effectively end our clients' homelessness."

Start-up funding for CIE San Diego was provided by a 2012 Alliance Healthcare Foundation (AHF) Innovation Initiative (i2) grant and a second grant of $1 million was recently awarded to further expand the CIE San Diego network to seniors aging in community and to measure organizational and client-level outcomes.  "Alliance Healthcare Foundation's goal in the Innovation Award program is to support initiatives that increase the capacity of local organizations through innovation and collaboration," said Rob McCray, Board Chair of Alliance Healthcare Foundation, "and we look forward to the time when all relevant agencies share data through the CIE San Diego network."

On December 11th from 4-6 PM , CIE San Diego will be designated a Live Well San Diego partner by Supervisor Ron Roberts and County of San Diego HHSA Director Nick Macchione.  This designation reflects CIE San Diego's dedication to support better service delivery systems and the Live Well shared vision of building better health, living safely, and thriving for all San Diegeans, "CIE San Diego is a key component of our regional information exchange infrastructure" said Supervisor Ron Roberts, "San Diego County continues to lead the way in integrating services for all of our citizens."  Over time, CIE San Diego aims to serve thousands of San Diego County social service nonprofits and continue to build collaborations with San Diego Health Connect and the County of San Diego's Knowledge Integration Program (KIP).

Launched in July of 2014, the CIE San Diego homeless pilot already enables more than 75 users across 6 organizations to access program history and case manager information for more than 800 homeless clients in downtown San Diego including:  

"By allowing access to more client information, CIE San Diego's network, technology and processes enable participants to improve their clients' lives, enhance operational effectiveness, and design new service delivery models," said Scott Bechtler-Levin, Executive Director of CIE San Diego," With the new funding from Alliance Healthcare Foundation and the recognition of Live Well San Diego, we look forward to supporting even more organizations."  CIE San Diego is powered by Social Solutions' Efforts to Outcomes (ETO) software.
