Integrated Data Systems and Better Case Management
2015 has been an important year for Integrated Data System (IDS) initiatives. We are launching two more this year including one in Albany NY. These are very challenging but hold the promise of great strides in improving service delivery for municipalities who look at familes as a whole. These projects will also make strides in developing new models for predictive data analysis and preventative and intervention service stragtegies.
We are proud of the work we have done over the last 17 years to develop a model for changing the silo'd culture of data management to a more integrated picture of how rich government data sets can be used. It generally is a re-purposing of existing data to create greater gains for families and individuals. Our last decade has taught us that there are four basic steps to launching a successful data sharing initiative.
- Having a theory of change.
- Documenting privacy agreements and establishing privacy procedures.
- Data analytics for choosing your cluster focus and building your predictive models.
- Determining the best response for your populations needs and establishing a good data flow model.
Once you have that all figured out you are ready for execution. Of course you have the technical matters to deal with but that is why you choose a company like ours to get you to implementation.
This year has also been an important year for the developing case management market. Our work in economic development, health, criminal justice, and early childhood development continues to challenge us to keep up with the changing needs and culture of data collection. The overall acceptance of mobile devices has opened up a whole new Big Data opportunity and new ways to engage the client. We have a couple new ventures that will integrate mobile technology as the case management field continues to morph and utilize new opportunities to interact with the client. We hope that this will put more data and decision-making into the client's hands as well as drive new forms fo case management. We hope it will increase the trust factor between client and case worker by a creating a more culturally competent and efficient interaction.
