"This study provides evidence that integrating sexual orientation and gender identity data collection into the Meaningful Use requirements is both acceptable to patients and feasible using existing SOGI question designs."

In order to better understand how a diverse group of people would respond when these questions are asked, several hundred patients at four health centers across the United States were surveyed about asking sexual orientation and gender identity questions in their health center. This publication summarizes the results of this study.
