CalOHII is committed to supporting secure health information movement in California.
The California Office of Health Information Integrity (CalOHII) continues to support better health outcomes in California. CalOHII Assistant Director Elaine Scordakis explains:
"CalOHII's work is focused on making confidential health information available when and where it's needed. In past years, the focus has been on the federal Health Information Exchange grant project to move patient information securely to providers, payers, and patients themselves. We are now focused on expanding those 'lessons learned' to coordinate data exchange among State departments that manage patient information."
