Identifying High Utilizers

Combining data from across the justice, health and human services systems helps jurisdictions identify the highest utilizers of multiple services and their needs. Defining and identifying high utilizers calls for consensus among justice, health and human services system and a formal agreement to share data. Each jurisdiction will determine a definition of high utilizers that works for them. Collaborators on data-driven justice strategies should bring together the appropriate legal, policy and technology leaders to begin the conversation on identifying high utilizers.
