Overcoming data challenges and creating new links in housing and health care

Thursday, June 2, 2016: 10:00 AM-11:30 AM
Broadway II (Hilton Portland)
Technology, metrics and interagency care coordination are quickly becoming critical to any agency's survival, raising questions about how to share client data in a way that remains HIPAA compliant, yet enhances community partnerships and improves client outcomes. In this interactive session, presenters will focus on strategies to enhance partnerships, to collect and use data in agency strategy and decision-making, and to operate more efficiently and economically while improving their delivery of services. Presenters will share examples of agencies exchanging data with Health Homes, Health Information Exchanges (HIEs), and Regional Health Information Organizations (RHIOs) to provide new levels of coordinated care. This workshop will also take a closer look at how successful, collaborative national program models are working to reduce homelessness and hear examples of how innovative partnerships are being applied to support the day-to-day recovery of clients in local communities. Highlights will include best practices from the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH), including its work collaborating with FQHCs across the nation and its Frequent Users of Systems Engagement Initiative.
