Do Ask, Do Tell: A Toolkit for Collecting Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Information in Clinical Settings is designed to help hospitals, health systems, community health centers, medical group practices, health plans, health center controlled networks, and other users understand the importance of collecting accurate demographic data on sexual orientation and gender identity. It is also intended to help a range of health system stakeholders, from CEOs to front-desk staff to providers, participate in institution-wide efforts to successfully design, introduce, and use systems, particularly EHRs, that incorporate the routine and standardized collection of SO/GI data.
The different sections of this toolkit can be read sequentially, for a fuller picture of the history of and rationale for collecting SO/GI data in clinical settings, or by selecting individual sections of interest from the pull down menu in the upper right hand corner.
