Final 2014 HMIS Data Standards Released

May 1, 2014

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) have just released the 2014 HMIS Data Dictionary and 2014 HMIS Data Manual.

The document directed at project staff and HMIS staff is the HMIS Data Standards. This outlines in great detail what data must be collected and how.

The deadline from HUD for this to be implemented in HMIS is by October 2014. The folks at Bowman Systems will be updating ServicePoint to implement the new data elements and changes in pick list values. As we know more there will be updates here and training opportunities as October approaches.

Over the next few months HUD is planning to release a number of other documents regarding HMIS use and rules.
