HMIS Workflow Workshop

  • Tuesday, October 15, 2013
  • 11:30 AM-3:30 PM  VT SBDC Technology Center, 1 Main Street, Randolph, VT

The Single HMIS Exploration Committee, a joint committee of the Vermont Coalition to End Homelessness and the Chittenden County Continuum of Care, will be hosting a workshop to identify the needs and requirements of a Homeless Management Information System (HMIS). The goal of the workshop is to provide a brief, non-technical overview of the purpose and goals of a HMIS, briefly discuss the overall process of selecting and implementing an HMIS solution, and identify what HMIS is and how it can be used at attendee’s agencies.  A key part of the workshop includes a definition of what a workflow process is, why it is important to any agency’s successful operations, how it is a critical piece of HMIS software selection, and how to map it.  Participants will work together to conduct a workflow analysis that will teach attendees how to document their own workflows for intake, enrollment, and service delivery. Attendees will then be able to use this information within their own organizations to understand how the HMIS can positively impact their work and data flow and identify ways in which the process could be improved by an HMIS. This will be a valuable opportunity for homeless service providers across the state to begin working together to identify how HMIS is currently used and how it could be used to improve service delivery, facilitate coordinated assessment, and support performance measurement while supporting the everyday program tasks. The workshop will focus on issues that are relevant to agency leadership, program managers and case managers or other staff that use HMIS on a daily basis.  Because the goal is to understand existing and desired process, it is especially important for non-technical people who are familiar with provider processes to attend.  The details: For more information, and to send in your RSVP, please email Justin Henry at justin.vahc@gmail.com.
