Got three min­utes to spare? Check out the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s video on a pow­er­ful infor­ma­tion tool called Inte­grat­ed Data Systems.

Inte­grat­ed Data Sys­tems work by link­ing and lever­ag­ing secure infor­ma­tion already gath­ered by pub­lic agen­cies. Par­tic­i­pat­ing orga­ni­za­tions decide what data to share, where to store this infor­ma­tion and how it can be used.

Pol­i­cy­mak­ers and pro­gram admin­is­tra­tors are using Inte­grat­ed Data Sys­tems to paint a fuller, broad­er pic­ture of how their chil­dren and fam­i­lies are far­ing. This new pic­ture has few­er sta­tis­ti­cal blind spots, which can help law­mak­ers and lead­ers devel­op smarter poli­cies, pro­grams and strate­gies for sup­port­ing sys­tem and com­mu­ni­ty solutions.
