Widespread data problems across Social Programmes

  • Unreliable data collection & IT systems – Useability & consolidation problems with the main third party application, CSMIS.
  • Poor capacity to utilise data for various purposes (service design, planning and performance evaluation, research social policy, PR, etc).
  • Absence of any policy ‘parameters’ (info management principles and programming needs) as foundation for any IT system solution.

Stay very close to the champion users

current challenges
Current Challenges

Competing against a silo mentality for data collections. We are strongly advocating for the development of protocols for the sharing of data between tools, not a shared software system. Such as can be used for e-referrals for housing and allied AoD treatment & health services. We have too much double handling of data.

Managing compliance to National Standards for all Data Collections. Taking some gambles on the future of the standards.

When do we move to a data warehouse facility to enable cross dataset reporting & analysis.

Involve the services on the ground with all service delivery reform and data collection.

Internally we are attempting to move to a client outcome reporting.
