AISP Learning Community Cohort 1– Data actively being integrated

The Rhode Island Executive Office of Health and Human Service Ecosystem has developed an integrated data system to improve agency performance and operational analytics, quality improvement, and data-informed decision making among EOHHS and partner Rhode Island agencies.  The Ecosystem is comprised of an Executive Team of approximately eight personnel at varying levels of commitment responsible for the leadership, management, and technical and operational oversight of the project.  There is also an established Executive Board comprised of agency directors which guides the ecosystem’s direction and selects signature projects as well as a Data Stewards Group (Data Owners) that ensures appropriate use of data and products.  A cross-agency eMOU is in place which outlines the data sharing between agencies and permissible use cases for ecosystem projects. Inquiry projects are prioritized through the governance process, and several high impact uses have been conducted.
