WellSky convened a national work group representing State Units on Aging, Area Agencies on Aging, Adult Protective Services, and ADvancing States to develop a set of meaningful data elements that might be utilized to help track and report on the impact of COVID-19. By standardizing data collection across the care continuum of state and local agencies, non-profits, and healthcare providers, we can arrive at a more effective and coordinated response.
This tip sheet identifies:
- Use cases where new data is required.
- A minimum set of data elements necessary to help inform staff and provider safety.
- Recommended adaptations to a human services case management system.
