CalHHS Data Playbook
The Playbook is a mechanism to disseminate best practices and lessons learned across the Agency, consisting of resources and toolkits to help staff navigate data projects and discuss data-related topics in nontechnical language.
The CalHHS Data De-Identification Guidelines describe a procedure to be used by Departments and offices in the Agency to assess data for public release.
Data sharing at CalHHS is governed by the CalHHS data exchange agreement, which includes one master agreement and subordinate “Business Use Case Proposals” containing the specific business case to document each data exchange under the master agreement.
The goal of CalHHS Record Reconciliation is to link and organize administrative, client-level records to improve statistical analysis of CalHHS clients.
