What do you need to do as an HMIS End User?
Our vendor and our HMIS Team are working behind the scene to correctly configure and implement these new changes with as little impact to our community partners as possible. However, the screens we are changing are complex and with almost 500 active programs, minor mistakes will happen. Please promptly inform us if you find any missing or malfunctioning fields in your program screens. Your help is crucial to help us catch any errors as soon as possible. We plan on releasing initial changes to the program screens a little early, so you may seem some of those changes as early as next week (9/25/23).
Custom Fields on Program Screens
As we update these program enrollment, status assessment, and program exit screens, we are also reviewing any custom fields created in response to requests from community partners. We will be connecting with specific agencies regarding the current use/non-use of their custom fields on program screens. Please be on the lookout for communications from the HMIS Team regarding these custom fields. Failure to respond to these requests will result in the assumption that these custom fields are no longer needed and they will be removed from the program screens.
