Coordinated Entry and HMIS Reporting

Prioritize and streamline your care.

Our HMIS supports a wide variety of Coordinated Entry Systems, including single point-of-entry systems and call centers, and is also set up to work with open-ended systems using a No Wrong Door approach. The most commonly used Coordinated Entry screening and assessment forms are built into our HMIS, including various versions of the VI-SPDAT and Self-Sufficiency Matrix. Or, use our form-building tool to easily build custom assessments.

For efficient data sharing across systems, our HMIS offers HUD CSV imports and exports on-demand. You can also share assessment forms and additional services data to measure the impact your Coordinated Entry System is having on the clients in your continuum.
