AISP Network: King County Health & Human Services Integrated Data Hub

About the Work

King County, Washington, home to Seattle and several other large cities, has created an integrated data hub for health and human services that supports cross-departmental client-level reporting and analysis. Since 2017, the team has developed a robust identity matching and mapping process, using Informatica tools, for three core health and homelessness data resources. As of 2018, the King County Departments of Community and Human Services, Public Health, and Information Technology have successfully and routinely linked across Medicaid, Behavioral Health, and the Homeless Management Information System. These client-level data resources will continue to be used for program evaluation, internal quality improvement, and support of care coordination through tools providing client-level look up. Monthly Steering Committee and Data Stewardship Committee meetings have been ongoing since April 2019, ensuring quality, transparency, and appropriate data use. As the Data Hub and associated analytic resources develop, the project team seeks to incorporate additional county data sources, including data from the Health Care for the Homeless Network and Department of Adult and Juvenile Detention.

King County Health & Human Services Integrated Data Hub is hosted by Departments of Community and Human Services, Public Health, and Information Technology.
