Recommended COVID-19 data collection standards

Incorporating COVID-19 data elements into your program

Recommended COVID-19 data collection standards from WellSky
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, WellSky consulted with human services agencies, associations, software vendors, and others to develop a set of meaningful data elements that might be utilized to help track and report on the impact of COVID-19. This tip sheet identifies:
  1. Use cases where new data is required.
  2. A minimum set of data elements necessary to help inform staff and provider safety.
  3. Recommended adaptations to a human services case management system. 
By standardizing data collection across the care continuum of state and local agencies, non-profits, and healthcare providers, we can arrive at a more effective and coordinated response. Download now.
