What’s happening: Assembly Bill 133 (Statutes of 2021) outlined the requirement for health care providers, plans, and other entities to exchange health information in real time for treatment, payment, or health care operations. 

What else to know: In July 2023, the California Health and Human Services Agency’s Center for Data Insights and Innovation released the Data Exchange Framework (DxF) and data sharing agreement (DSA), which outline the initial requirements for health information exchange for health and human services organizations in California. To facilitate compliance with the DxF, CHA has gathered current information regarding the DxF, the DSA, and related policies and procedures.

Beginning Jan. 31, most general acute care hospitals must exchange health information or provide access to health information to other DxF participants including health plans, skilled-nursing facilities, and other entities. Rehabilitation hospitals, long-term acute care hospitals, acute psychiatric hospitals, critical access hospitals, and rural general acute care hospitals with fewer than 100 acute care beds have until Jan. 31, 2026, to comply with the DxF. 

For more information about these new requirements, please contact Trina Gonzalez, vice president, policy, at
