Making the Connection: Creating Healthier Communities Through Integrated Data Systems

Sep. 26, 2018 , 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm

As part of their role in creating healthy, vibrant and safe communities, counties collect information on residents’ well-being and use of services. Increasingly, county leaders are looking at ways to break down information silos and harness the value of the data they collect to better inform policies and improve residents’ lives. Integrated data systems bring together disparate information sources and maximize county leaders’ ability to design policies and practices that take into account the whole of individuals, families and communities, from child welfare and education, to health and vital statistics, housing, workforce development, employment and more. Join NACo, Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy (AISP) and counties to learn about leading practices for building the human and technical capacity to integrate data systems, including how it can be applied to address pressing county priorities like racial equity and child serving systems.

In advance of the webinar, please consider taking a look at three expert panel reports, which are linked below, that were commissioned by AISP and cover best practices in the IDS field related to governance, legal issues and data standards.
