John Ohanian and 2-1-1 San Diego’s first national Community Information Exchange Summit was such a success they have signed up to host it again in April 2019. Last year’s event sold out with 350 leaders from across the country attending.

2-1-1 San Diego CEO Ohanian and his team developed a technology platform for CIE along with San Diego Health Connect, The San Diego Foundation, Alliance Healthcare Foundation and Molina Healthcare.

The idea behind Community Information Exchange is to gather and provide more relevant information about potential clients to social service providers. It’s a lot easier to coordinate appropriate care if you know a client’s health, housing status, ability to access transportation and workforce capabilities.

The second annual Community Information Exchange Summit will at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina.
