HMIS Upgrades!

You asked for it--you got it. Be sure to check our recent HMIS upgrades--and once again, thanks for your input!

With this HMIS upgrade come new data validation tools, pre-entry duplicate checking, Agency and Demographic reporting, GNIS coding, and improved overall performance.

The data validation module focuses on fields such as Date of Birth, Social Security Numbers and so forth, where a specific format needs to be followed. Dates are checked in a similar manner.

A new duplicate checking tool prompts the user before they create a new record--it's part of the normal work flow now. And in the report category, check out: "This Agency's Programs and Services," "This Agency's Clients By Programs and Services Received," and the more general, "This Agency's Clients."
