Director of HMIS and Strategic Analysis
Overview: CCEH is designated as the Lead Agency for CT’s Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), the single administrative database that tracks use of homeless services across the state. In concert with the HMIS Steering Committee and the CCEH CEO, the Director of HMIS and Strategic Analysis is responsible for managing and directing HMIS operations, governance, planning and data analysis. The Director is responsible for ensuring that the HMIS database collects the information needed for reporting compliance and serves as a tool to provide useful information to help providers and policymakers understand the outcomes of their work. The Director identifies and supports strategic opportunities for HMIS expansion and improvement. The Director also co-leads a collaborative team that identifies and develops strategic uses of data to help inform program and system performance improvements, resource needs and gaps, and strategies to reduce homelessness. The Director is responsible for developing and managing contracts with sub-contractors and others who support the HMIS system or use its data. The HMIS Director supervises a staff of 3 along with interns and consultants. The HMIS data unit responds to data requests from partners and other stakeholders. The HMIS data unit is also responsible for executing the annual PIT count and report, Youth Count, providing “real-time” data for monthly progress reports, and for producing a small number of additional analytical “briefs” throughout the year.
