Resource Summary: This publication summarizes the lessons learned from conversations with Health Care for the Homeless health center consumers and providers as health centers work to create coordinated care systems through data.

Resource Details: Health centers have long embraced the factors of health occurring in- and outside of the clinic setting. This emphasis on whole-person care underpins the importance of integrated services meeting clinical and social needs along a continuum of interdisciplinary providers. While the goal is continuity of care, the fundamentals of this kind of service integration are the collection, leveraging, and sharing of data. Hopes for improving care coordination thus hinge on the appropriate, ethical, and efficient use of data. This publication summarizes the lessons learned from conversations with consumers and providers as HCHs work to create coordinated care systems through data.
