Description:The HHS Office of Minority Health will offer funding for the development and management of community data hubs focused on SDOH/social need/social risk and health data sharing, integration and dissemination. This project will support staffing and technology infrastructure and resources to complete the following primary tasks: (1) identify communities for which data hubs will be built; (2) build community data hubs; (3) provide technical assistance for the data hubs; and (4) identify, access, assemble, house, analyze, and disseminate community-level SDOH/social need/social risk (e.g., housing, transportation, food insecurity and education) and health data for the two communities. BACKGROUND: Challenges for health and social care systems in accessing shared data include lack of: (1) robust data sharing infrastructure; (2) data standards for SDOH; and (3) interoperability among data systems. Federal, state and local government and health and social service providers collect various SDOH/social need and health data but do not often share the data across organizations. Racial and ethnic minority populations, especially in communities highly impacted by COVID-19, could benefit greatly by community-level data sharing and integration.Substantial involvement is needed to ensure adequate technical assistance and guidance is provided to support robust and secure data infrastructure; and that the project is routinely informed by two relevant HHS initiatives: (1) an ASPE initiative supporting case studies of local communities that are engaged in data sharing to integrate medical and social services for individuals; and (2) an ACL initiative supporting health IT platform enhancement to securely share standardized data on SDOH and person- centered plans between a health care system's electronic health records and community based organizations.
