[Register for Webinar] Using and Sharing Data across Health, Human Services, and Justice Systems


Hosted by the National Association of Counties


Date: Thursday, Oct. 10
Time: 2–3 p.m. ET




Counties across the country are collaborating with systems partners to reduce the number of people with mental illnesses in their jails. Despite the progress that has been made, challenges with integrating data systems and establishing processes for information sharing are limiting counties’ success in identifying this population, coordinating services and supervision, and tracking the population’s usage of these systems.

Common barriers to data integration include the collecting, sharing, and analyzing of data, as well as establishing information-sharing agreements. This two-part webinar series will offer tips on managing data and information sharing for people who frequently utilize multiple systems along the criminal justice continuum, such as emergency rooms, shelters, and jails. This webinar, the first of the two, will focus on the collection and management of data and will address primary challenges counties often face; participants will have the opportunity to hear about sites who are participating in both Stepping Up and the Data-Driven Justice initiative and have implemented processes to identify and track this population.
