(WellSky) [Webinar] HMIS is Epidemiology: Tracking COVID-19 & homelessness
Discover a multidisciplinary approach to address the threat of COVID-19 among people experiencing homelessness.
The challenges created by COVID-19 require professionals focused on ending homelessness to think out of the box. This webinar shows you how to apply public health research methods, epidemiology principles, and mathematics to solve the new problems you face today.
The presentation will include colorful historical anecdotes that emphasize the importance of data quality assessment and improvement planning. You will learn several ways to enhance your homelessness information management system (HMIS) and agency processes, including how to:
Implement community level monitoring of COVID-19
Establish data management principles for non-congregate shelters, like hotels
Revise housing prioritization rules to address the pandemic
