Review VA's Request to Share HMIS Client Info, 6/24, 11:30am-12:30pm

Please join us to discuss "VA's Request to Share HMIS Client Information" via WebEx on 6/24, 11:30am-12:30pm (registration not required).  Adrienne MelĂ©ndez (VA TA) has graciously agreed to provide a brief overview, and then we will have an open forum.  Listed below is the WebEx info and the original email I sent to Adrienne this morning.  Hope you are able to attend.  Thanks!

Jason's email to VA TA, 6/19, 9:43amAdrienne, would you be open to a discussion about VA's request to share client information amongst CoC's?  While I encourage and support efforts to assist our clients, I have some major concerns regarding some of the preliminary discussions, drafts, etc.  After quickly skimming through a few of the drafts this morning, I already noticed several areas that conflict or are out of compliance with either federal, state, local, HIPAA, VA, and HUD regulations.  I also have concerns regarding the additional workload this will create for all of the CoC's, providers, and case managers.  I completely understand the intent, but wish to provide input before this is released, if at all possible.  As always, thank you for your efforts and consideration.
