What is HMIS?
Homeless Management Information System
The Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) is a computerized data collection tool specifically designed to capture client-level, system-wide information over time on the characteristics and services needs of men, women and children experiencing homelessness. HMIS allows the aggregation of client-level data across homeless service agencies to generate unduplicated counts and service patterns of clients served.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) National Data and Technical Standards establish baseline standards for participation, data collection, privacy and security and the El Paso Continuum of Care has developed the attached local participation standards (Participation Standards document) and HMIS Charter (HMIS Charter). Implementation of HMIS is a requirement for receipt of HUD McKinney-Vento funding.
The El Paso Coalition for the Homeless is the local HMIS lead agency utilizing the Clarity HS software from Bitfocus, Inc.
