Fry presents at a conference

Idaho Policy Institute Research Director Vanessa Fry presented alongside Kim Keaton, Corporation for Supportive Housing director of data and analysis, at the WellSky 2019 CareForum. Their talk was titled, “First Comes Data: Using Homeless and Healthcare Data to Drive Housing Interventions and Reduce Public Costs.”

Fry provided a case study of data integration using New Path Community Housing in Ada County. Using this case study, Keaton and Fry shared improved ways of integrating homeless and housing data with health care and other systems so that they may both identify people for interventions and track outcomes for those in housing to demonstrate impact.
