HHSA staff in Health Coverage Access marked  “Pi Day ”, 3/14/16, by having pie (what else?) and taking part in a “P.I". (Protected Information) quiz,about data security in Medi-Cal and related programs. The pies were supplied by department supervisors.

Confidentiality is important in every HHSA office, but HCA staff serve customers in jails, hospitals and clinics throughout the County; sites where extra care must be taken to ensure all data are protected.
