Cross-sector data sharing is lauded as an integral part of complex care. Sharing data between multiple sectors—such as behavioral health, medical, criminal justice, housing, and education—seems like a straightforward way to understand people’s complex health and social needs and provide whole-person care. In practice, however, sharing data isn’t always so simple.
These sample data sharing agreements were used as part of Camden ARISE, which linked data from criminal justice, healthcare, and housing in Camden, NJ. The agreements can be adapted for use by other cross-sector groups seeking to share data.
