1 Matrix reporting For FHPAP and LTH

2 wilderresearch.org Today’s Webinar You can listen using your computer or calling in by phone Phone: (914) , Access code: Use the bar on the right side to ask questions. We will respond either directly, as part of the webinar to the audience in general, or follow-up after with you ─ It is a big group, so we may not get through all questions

3 Focus of today’s session is reporting We will cover the data check and summary reports and a couple of basics of data entry If you have other matrix related questions, we may be able to stay on the line at the end of the reporting session to cover those as well depending on time and the number of questions wilderresearch.org

4 Matrix Tool Overview 18 Domains of Self-sufficiency Recorded in HMIS PowerPoint Training tool should be reviewed by all staff Staff should meet regularly to ensure consistent use Management should be involved in implementation and review of outcomes wilderresearch.org

5 Important Reference Materials Link to forms, training tool and additional information assistance/housing/MHFA_ aspx wilderresearch.org

6 Collecting Matrix Data Best practice is to complete the matrix with the participant. Do not have participants complete on their own. If you and the participant disagree or feel the best response is between two numbers, select the lower of the two numbers Initial assessment should be based on status prior to entry Exit assessment should be based on housing after exit wilderresearch.org

7 Collecting Matrix Data The process for completing the assessment may vary. It may be entered directly into the computer or done on paper; in conversation with the participant, by observation and case notes. Do what works best! wilderresearch.org

8 LTH Matrix timeline Complete matrix at entry, every 6 months, and at exit Complete for all clients 18+ at program entry and youth on their own As part of initial roll out, clients already in the program as of July 1 st 2011 will have an initial assessment completed looking back to their program entry date ─ Complete interims on 6 month schedule starting 7/1/2011 wilderresearch.org

9 LTH follow-up chart Month participant entered program Complete follow-up assessments in… January  JulyANDJanuary February  AugustANDFebruary March  SeptemberANDMarch April  OctoberANDApril May  NovemberANDMay June  DecemberANDJune July  JanuaryANDJuly August  FebruaryANDAugust September  MarchANDSeptember October  AprilANDOctober November  MayANDNovember December  JuneANDDecember wilderresearch.org

10 LTH Required domains All domains except credit Disability is included on form, but not in HMIS ─ Make sure you are not recording the disability information in credit wilderresearch.org

11 FHPAP Matrix timeline Enter initial matrix for heads of households (includes singles and youth heads) new to the program as of July 1 st 2011 Complete interim assessments only for clients in the program 6 months or more ─ Complete every three months if still in program No final matrix ─ Can record interim at exit for those in the program 6 months or more wilderresearch.org

12 FHPAP Required domains Required: Housing, Employment, Income, Food, Child Care, Children’s Education, Adult Education, Life Skills, Family/Social Relations, Mobility, and Legal ─ Others are optional, but select “NA” if you aren’t completing wilderresearch.org

13 HMIS data entry tip: Reminders (optional) If you add a date to the “Projected Follow up Date” a reminder shows up on the Follow up List on your Home page To turn this off (after you have completed the next matrix): 1.Return to the matrix with this date added 2.Record the date you completed the next matrix in the “Actual follow-up date” 3.Go to “Follow-up Made” and select Yes wilderresearch.org

14 Matrix report location All Matrix Reports are located in Matrix folder ─ Both FHPAP and LTH use reports in same folder ─ We have add notes to clarify which funding sources use which summary report ─ Data check reports are clearly labeled by funding source wilderresearch.org

15 Data Checking-ART Wilder has designed a report to help check data quality and provide reminders of matrix dates Make sure to run regularly as you enter information Running monthly can also help you check for clients needing follow-ups (LTH especially) wilderresearch.org

16 LTH Matrix Data Check Report Report prompts: ─ Start and end dates should cover the period of time you are interested in Start date will need to include the first program entry date for clients you are recording matrix data for (ex: client entered in 2007) Clients who exited before 7/1/2011 are excluded wilderresearch.org

17 FHPAP data check report Prompt dates follow reporting periods ─ 7/1/2011 to 1/1/2012 for this report period wilderresearch.org

18 Matrix Data Check Report (all 3 versions) Three Tabs: ─ Matrix Data Check highlights matrix data entered for each client and clients without any matrix data ─ Entry Exit Check shows data from the Entry/Exit section with some matrix dates for comparison ─ Matrix Time Period Check highlights matrix due dates and summarizes most recent matrix entries Save reports as Excel wilderresearch.org

19 Matrix Data Check Tab Section for each client: Client ID at top of section ─ If client has Entry/Exit but no Matrix, then only the top entry/exit table will have information-the matrix table is blank Summary section on the right listing each matrix completed with IDs and count for reference ─ Make sure each client is on list with correct entry and exit date and these match to matrix initial and final dates wilderresearch.org

20 Matrix Data check tab Section for each client: Client ID at top of section (cont.) ─ Clients with Matrix data have section for each Matrix completed: separate table for initial, each interim, and exit matrix (depending on funder requirements) ─ Make sure data entered is correct; terms going along with number ratings are given wilderresearch.org

21 Entry/Exit Check Tab-LTH specific Lists entry/exit for each client ─ Highlights if age missing: Make sure to record so correct clients can be included in summary reports ─ Counts number of matrix records ─ Provides first and last matrix date to compare to entry and exit dates wilderresearch.org

22 Matrix Time Period Check Tab LTH: ─ Top table helps identify matrix follow-up months for clients (without final matrix) For each client, give initial date, then months for first and second 6 month follow-ups each year ─ Second table lists most recent dates for initial, interim, and final along with how many of each Help check for completeness and duplication of records FHPAP: Can use time period check for clients staying longer than 6 months to track when 3 month follow-ups are needed wilderresearch.org

23 Understanding Matrix Summary Reports wilderresearch.org

24 Matrix reports Why report on Matrix data? ─ Tracking over time to understand both how clients are progressing and in context of overall environment How do reports look from year to year? Are things like the economy affecting clients and programs? As funding may change how are clients and programs seeing impacts? wilderresearch.org

25 Matrix reports Why report on Matrix data? (cont.) ─ Quantifying overall client progress as they are served over the years; understanding long-term program benefits ─ Identifying emerging/changing client needs ─ Help programs better understand their clients and outcomes ─ Help clients understand their progress over time ─ We also may discover new reasons reporting is helpful wilderresearch.org

26 Matrix Reports Current summary reports designed by Bowman based on matrix reports needs by other HMIS systems Provider Level reports: Shows client progress and achievement Summary reports: Shows program level scores for entry, exit and participant progress Save reports as PDFs for your own use ─ LTH: send reports to funder in Excel Save reports as PDFs for your own use ─ LTH: send reports to funder in Excel wilderresearch.org

27 Matrix reports Three types of reports ─ Clients with final matrix (LTH only) ─ Client’s with initial matrix (LTH and FHPAP) ─ Clients with initial and interim (LTH and FHPAP) Only includes data from Matrix Assessment ─ It is important to make sure all client’s entry/exits match up with Matrix data entered using data check report wilderresearch.org

28 Client level reports 1P Client-level Progress Report (LTH and FHPAP) ─ To be included in this report the client must have an initial matrix assessment and one interim assessment One matrix must be in the report date range ─ Provides summary table and chart for each client comparing initial and most recent assessments (may be final matrix) Calculates time period between in days ─ Also provides list of all matrix assessments completed, dates and scores for each client for reference wilderresearch.org

29 Client level reports 2P Client-level Achievement Report-with final Matrix (LTH) ─ Looks at clients who have an initial matrix assessment and a final matrix assessment on or after the report start date ─ Provides summary table and chart for each client comparing initial and final assessments ─ Also includes overall summary report for all clients with final matrix in that period ─ Does not look at any actual exit dates for clients, only final matrix information wilderresearch.org

30 Summary reports Provide information for all clients in a specific time period of each Matrix domain Include a number of statistical terms to help describe the matrix data. We hope these provide some useful information, but general frequencies and charts may be all you need Only summary reports ─ Don’t send client-level reports over wilderresearch.org

31 Summary reports 1-2S Self Sufficiency Matrix Progress Summary (LTH and FHPAP) Use to report on programs matrix report changes over time ─ Compares initial to other matrix assessments in three tables Initial to Most recent (FHPAP and LTH) Initial to Interim (FHPAP and LTH) Initial to Final (LTH only) Note: FHPAP only includes clients in program 6+ months for most recent and interim sections wilderresearch.org

32 Summary reports 3S Summary Report: Domains at Population Entry (FHPAP and LTH) Includes all clients with an initial matrix Summarizes each domain on a separate page including counts by score and statistical summary information ─ Note: 6=NA Also includes summary info on client level data for each domain (only client IDs) wilderresearch.org

33 Summary reports Domains at Population Entry: ─ Use prompt box to select time frame for report Options to enter first assessment date and last assessment date for initial assessments Will only report on clients with an initial assessment in the period you select LTH Select start date to include first program entry for clients you are collecting matrix data for (i.e. 2007) FHPAP start date= first day of report period (7/1/2011) wilderresearch.org

34 Summary reports 4S Summary Report: Domains at Population Exit (LTH) Includes all clients with a final matrix Summarizes each domain on a separate page including counts by score and statistical summary information ─ Note: 6=NA Also includes summary info on client level data for each domain (only client IDs) wilderresearch.org

35 Summary reports Use prompt box to select time frame for report ─ Will only report on clients with an interim and/or final assessment in the period you select ─ Run for report period date range i.e. 7/1/2011 to 1/1/2012 wilderresearch.org

36 Summary reports 3S and 4S follow same format For both the 3S and 4S the two most useful sections will be: ─ Frequencies (table): listing the number of clients with each score ─ Histogram (chart): shows in a graph the number of people with each score wilderresearch.org

37 Statistical terms in reports Mean: The average of the scores for each matrix domain. It is calculated by adding the scores and then dividing by the number of scores. Median: The point that divides the your matrix scores in half. So there will be an even number of scores above and below this point. Mode: The most common matrix score for each domain. wilderresearch.org

38 Statistical terms in reports Range: The distance between the highest and lowest scores. Compares the minimum and maximum scores listed on the report. Variance and Standard Deviation: Both are calculations of how much the matrix scores vary (statistical normalcy) ─ Usually most scores fall in the middle with a few outliers. If there are many high and low scores, it will show up in this data ─ Unless you already understand these, they are not key measures for now wilderresearch.org

39 Statistics summary These measures provide a way to describe the distribution of each domain so that they can be more easily summarized and compared Measures of central tendency (mean, median and mode) describe the location of the center of the distribution, while measures of dispersion (range, variance and standard deviation) describe how the distribution is spread out Definitions are also included at the end of the summary reports wilderresearch.org

40 Summary reports Last section includes client level summary information (by Client ID only). ─ Shows client ID and initial score ─ Provides a summary of clients with NA (notes as Other in report) or missing scores Missing compares if they have a score at initial and do not have one for other matrix assessments ─ Best to use this along with Wilder data check report for complete understanding of matrix data quality wilderresearch.org

41 LTH reporting Send Excel reports to your funder by report due date First set of reports due by February 2 wilderresearch.org

42 FHPAP reporting Grantees let Minnesota Housing know when reports are ready If you are a sub-grantee, grantees need to know when data is correct and reports are ready ─ Each FHPAP grantee has own process; contact your grantee if you have questions They may ask you to send summary reports to them for review wilderresearch.org

43 Using the Reports Client level progress reports- use for discussion with participant on needs, goals and progress. Entry domains report- look at the scores for participants on each domain. ─ Do they make sense for your program participants? For example, housing scores range from 1-3… ─ Do you see status levels on any domains that surprise you? ─ Are you targeting the right population for your program? ─ Use the information to make the case for the level of service need for your program participants ─ Track trends over time- do needs change on any domains? wilderresearch.org

44 Using the Reports Exit report- look at the scores for participants on each domain. ─ Do they make sense for your program participants? Do you see status levels on any domains that surprise you? Very high or low scores on any domains? Are there areas where you consistently see good progress and others where you don’t? ─ Use the information to show the impact of your program, housing and services for participant change in major life areas ─ Track Trends over time wilderresearch.org

45 Using the Reports Provider Summary Progress Report ─ Look at overall participant status and progress on each domain ─ What are service level needs for pool of participants? Do you need to access more resources to meet needs? Are some participants ready for step down services? ─ Does progress level off on certain domains after a period of time? Do you need to adjust services? ─ Program managers can see if different service staff have participants with better or worse progress on certain domains. Are there training needs or better matching of staff to participants? Case load issues? ─ Use the information to set program outcome goals and targets ─ Use the information to report to your board, in funding applications, advocacy efforts, etc. wilderresearch.org
