DMH funded providers by contract must submit demographic, clinical information and claims data for all individuals receiving services funded using DMH dollars. The DMH provides data specifications to assure consistency of reporting. Registration data is submitted directly to the DMH information system which is operated by the DMH's Administrative Services Organization (ASO). Claims data, which is submitted to the state Medicaid agency Healthcare and Family Services (HFS), is returned to the ASO after processing where it is stored with registration information in the DMH data warehouse. This information is used as a basis for developing reports and for analytic purposes, and is the basis for reporting the data used to populate the majority of the URS tables

Data for this indicator are generated through a special web-based database created specifically for the DMH SE initiative. Fidelity and outcomes data are submitted to the DMH SE coordinator. As always, DMH has developed specifications for reporting that DMH funded providers must use when submitting data. DMH only reports data for teams that have been found to exhibit fidelity to the evidenced based practice model.

to track access to and receipt of permanent supportive housing. The data for this indicator will be generated from permanent supportive housing applications which are stored in the special database, as well as a special PSH outcomes database.
