It is advisable for homeless service providers to capture data on COVID-19 status within the population they serve. This information is useful for public health planning, public and private funding allocations that are based on area need, as well as research to inform best practices around this type of crisis.
This webinar will provide information related to HMIS data collection, privacy concerns, mobile data collection, as well as research and population sampling to determine the degree to which COVID-19 has impacted the homeless community. Experts in these areas will provide important information and share tools that will help your data collection efforts in the field.
