Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) Data Collection
For SUD Contracted Treatment Providers
The following materials were shared with providers during a technical assistance online meeting on March 14, 2018. As of March 15, 2018, substance use disorder (SUD) providers are expected to begin SOGI data collection using a paper form (see SOGI form below). On April 1st, 2018, SOGI data collection will officially go live for SUD providers in AVATAR. Please utilize the resources below for implementation in SUD programs.

2. - Between March 15 and March 31, 2018, please print and use this as a form to capture SOGI data. Please begin entering SOGI data into AVATAR as of April 1st.
