In order to align with the upcoming October 1, 2015 changes in the HMIS Data Standards, we have updated the sample HMIS data entry forms. The changes do not affect data collection on all screens, so we have posted only the forms with updates. These are available to agencies as a tool to aid in data collection, but are not required. The forms are posted in Word format so that projects can amend them as necessary to meet their data collection needs.
PATH 2015 Data for EXPORT v 1.1 update and clarifications.
We have discovered that the referrals section of the PATH 2015 Data for EXPORT report was not including all relevant referrals due to an undocumented ‘bug’ in ART involving referrals. Working with Bowman staff we identified a workaround which should now allow all relevant referrals to be included in this report. The ART ‘quirk’ involving referrals impacts only reporting on referrals in Entry Exit based reporting.
Clarification on what is included. The way services, referrals, and outreach contacts are recorded in ServicePoint they are not connected explicitly to a specific project entry. The Services, Referrals, and Outreach tabs present services, referrals, or outreach records dated between the report Start and End are included.
The updated version of PATH 2015 Data for EXPORT report is now ready in the PATH (Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness).
Special thanks to Ali at Preble Street for helping to identify the issue.
The new PATH reports for 2015 are now available.
Note: These reports are designed to report on PATH program specific data requirements and are NOT designed for use by non-PATH projects.
The new and updated PATH reports look at PATH data in ServicePoint using the revised UDE and PATH data elements requirements as defined in the HUD August 2014 HMIS Data Standards Manual. These reports should NOT be used to review data completeness for client records where the client exited before 10/1/2014.
The PATH 2015 Data for Export report is primarily designed for exporting data for use by DHHS staff in DHHS data systems.

The Housing Inventory and Bed Utilization (DHHS) report has been in the PATH ART reports folder for a number of years and has not had any significant update at this time.
The PATH Program participation days / nights for period report has also been in the PATH ART reports folder for a number of years. This report has had a minor update to include the Path Client Enrolled field answer for each Client row.
