Data Quality 201: Bed Coverage and Strategies to Improve It
May 06, 2020 | 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM EDT
This session is part of the Spring 2020 NHSDC HUD Virtual Conference.
Bed coverage rates reflect the percentage of homeless assistance beds in a community that are actively participating in the local Homeless Management Information System (HMIS). The ability to have high or complete bed coverage rates is critical, as it empowers a community to more confidently state that their HMIS data truly reflects their local system of care for persons experiencing homelessness. One of the more challenging aspects of data quality can be improving local bed coverage rates, particularly for projects that are not funded to participate in HMIS. During this session, participants heard first-hand from communities that have successfully improved local bed coverage rates and walked away with strategies for how they too can tackle this challenge.
