AISP Network: Rhode Island Integrated Health and Human Services Data Ecosystem

About the Work

The Rhode Island Ecosystem is using integrated data to improve agency performance and operational analytics, quality improvement, and data-informed decision making among EOHHS and partner Rhode Island agencies. The Ecosystem, which was supported in its early stages by the AISP training and technical assistance Learning Community program, is comprised of an Executive Team of approximately eight personnel responsible for the leadership, management, and technical and operational oversight of the project. A cross-agency eMOU is in place which outlines the data sharing process and permissible uses for cross-agency data. Inquiry projects are prioritized through the governance process, and several high impact uses have been conducted, including projects focused on Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) and Child Maltreatment Prevention.

Most recently, the Ecosystem has been collaborating with partners in state government to support a public dashboard that tracks Rhode Island COVID-19 cases and response, as well internal daily dashboards for the Governor and other high-level policymakers on system capacity.

Rhode Island Integrated Health and Human Services Data Ecosystem is hosted by Executive Office of Health and Human Services.
