1 United Way Reporting

2 Overview of reports Summary reports are used to obtain data to submit through the United Way Annual Report process ─ United Way has a separate system to submit annual counts and other required information. ─ You will receive information from the United Way separately about this

3 Overview of reports Reports are also important for two other reasons 1.United Way receives a separate report from Wilder of all data elements required in HMIS 2.Information on clients you serve can be useful to your agency for program evaluation and planning

6 Summary and Data Check reports Use them together to verify data is complete and correct ─ Data quality reports provide client level detail to make sure all clients are included and the right information is recorded on their record. Run these first. ─ Counting reports can give you an overview of data. Does it look right for your program? ─ Both program and data entry staff should review reports (if they aren’t the same people).
