AISP Network: Washington State’s Integrated Client Databases (ICDB)

About the Work

The Research and Data and Analysis Division (RDA) of the Washington State Department of Health and Human Services provides data, analytics, and decision support tools to improve services and transform lives.

RDA’s Integrated Client Databases (ICDB) comprise a federated set of longitudinal databases with two decades of detailed risk, service utilization, expenditure, and outcome data for persons served by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), Health Care Authority (HCA), and Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF). The ICDB is used to conduct program evaluation, performance measurement, predictive modeling, forecasting, geographical analysis, and policy analysis to inform the design, operation, and evaluation of health and human services programs. The ICDB draws information from over 30 state agency data systems. Strict data security and confidentiality standards are in place to ensure protection of personal client information in accordance with applicable state and federal laws.

Washington State’s Integrated Client Databases (ICDB) is hosted by Research and Data Analysis Division (RDA), Department of Health and Human Services.
