California Data Exchange Framework

About California Data Exchange Framework

Assembly Bill (AB) 133 (Statutes of 2021) outlined the requirement for health care providers, plans, and others to exchange health information in real time for treatment, payment, or health care operations.

In July 2023, the California Health and Human Services Agency’s (CalHHS) Center for Data Insights and Innovation (CDII) released the Data Exchange Framework (DxF) and Data Sharing Agreement (DSA), which outlines the initial requirements for health information exchange for health and human services organizations in California.
