California Data Sharing

Agreement and Policies and Procedures

On July 5, 2022, the California Health and Human Services Agency (CalHHS) Center for Data Insights and Innovation (CDII) released the final Data Exchange Framework (DxF) and associated Data Sharing Agreement (DSA) and Policies and Procedures (P&Ps), as required under A.B. 133 (2022). (For more information on A.B. 133, please see our fact sheet.) CalHHS developed these policies with input from a Stakeholder Advisory Group and DSA Subcommittee. All policies will go into effect on January 31, 2024. 

In collaboration with its Stakeholder Advisory Group, CDII developed several guiding principles as part of the DxF to guide design and implementation, support deliberations, and build trust among data exchange partners. These principles include:

  • Advance health equity
  • Make data available to drive decisions and outcomes
  • Support whole person care
  • Promote individual data access
  • Reinforce individual data privacy and security
  • Establish clear and transparent terms and conditions for data collection, exchange, and use
  • Adhere to data exchange standards; and
  • Ensure accountability
