Update to an Emergency Shelter intake question

Posted on: Mar 30, 2015
By: Russ Cormier

We have made a change to the question that is found on the “CA/ES Future Plans” assessment has been modified to better reflect what is being asked (this was asked for by members in the field, approved by the CT HMIS Steering Committee and now has been updated in the system)
.
This question was formerly asked as “What are your plans for future living arrangements and leaving the shelter?” The question label was changed to “If you don’t come back, where would you most likely go?” to better clarify what information is being asked. The actual answer choices have NOT been modified, only the wording of the question.

This had been reviewed on the most recent HDC calls and Steering committee meetings.

All –

Access to the CT HMIS Caseworthy system experienced a datacenter network outage from approximately 7PM EST on 3/26/15 through 4:45AM EST on 3/27/15.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused staff during this outage.

We will continue working with our data center partner to determine the cause of the failure and identify additional precautions that can be put in place to prevent this from happening in the future.

Our goal is to have the application available 24×7 (minus any scheduled maintenance that has to occur)

Coordinated Access DQ Reports

Posted on: Jan 14, 2015
By: Russ Cormier

We have deployed a Data Quality view for Coordinated Access – on the Network side of the house (the actual staff in the field, not 211). This has been tested by a select group of Coordinated Access staff over the past several weeks and we are ready to deploy it to all.

The purpose of this is to check to see if the person’s Appointment date has passed, and the referral status is still set to “Referred” (which means the case worker or duty service coordinator did not process the referral after they met with the client (or set it to “no show” if the client did not show up). This report is now live, instructions on how to use this are pasted below and available in the online documentation (the online document can be found here;

New HMIS Feature: Workflow Management

Posted on: Oct 08, 2014
By: Lani Ireland

With the upgrade to version 4.4, Client workflows are no longer restricted to one client at a time. You can now start a workflow on one client, and if you get distracted or need additional information, you can “save progress and close” that client’s workflow and launch a new workflow for a separate client, while still being able to resume the previous client’s workflow at any time.

A new pop-up screen has been added to assist with managing these workflows. Any time a workflow is halted by a user, the screen will appear when the “Enroll client” workflow is launched.
