Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity (SOGI) Education
We Ask Because We Care
We recently added new questions about sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) to MyChart, our electronic medical record system and our patient-check-in process. Our health system believes that asking these questions is important so we can provide everyone with culturally responsive, patient-centered services they need.
We will ask these questions every six months just like when we verify your other demographic information. All SOGI information is optional. If you do not feel comfortable disclosing this information you may choose the option “choose not to disclose”.
If you don’t know which information to use, that’s alright. There are no right or wrong answers. If you don’t find an answer that fits, you can choose the option “something else”, or you can talk with your provider.
