9 Introduction to Standards 9

10 History of HMIS Standards  HMIS Data Standards were developed by focus groups of community stakeholders, researchers, technology experts and consumers  Data and Technical Standards were initially published in July 2004  Sections 2 and 3 of the original standard were replaced in March 2010 while the remaining sections of the 2004 standard remain in effect  Focused on standards, not development of a system 10

11 History of HMIS Standards  What the HMIS Standards Don’t Do:  Set a specific software to be used  Limit a CoC or HMIS from requiring the collection additional data elements  Limit a CoC or HMIS from requiring additional client privacy and system security protections  Limit a CoC or HMIS from adding additional functionality (beyond HUD purposes)  Stay static (they are updated periodically) 11

12 HMIS Data Standards  There are 3 data element categories outlined in the March 2010 Revised HMIS Data Standards  Program Descriptor Data Elements (PDDE)  Universal Data Elements (UDE)  Program-Specific Data Elements (PSDE)  The Data Standards define specific, allowable responses for each data element  Not all the data in the Data Standard are required to be collected by every program  Each program will collect at least a subset of data 12

13 Poll #2: HMIS Data Standards  True or False: The HMIS Data and Technical Standards are a document that outlines the data collection, privacy, and security requirements for collecting data required by HUD. 13
