New Data Standards
One of the most significant changes to the 2022 Data Standards is the change in responses and logic to the Gender Identity question. MCAH has partnered with the Ruth Ellis Center from Highland Park (in Detroit). The Ruth Ellis Center has experience working with the LGBTQ+ youth and young adults with an emphasis on young people of color, experiencing homelessness, involved in the child welfare system, and/or experiencing barriers to health and wellbeing. The material covered in these trainings includes critical information that will help case managers with conducting client centered interviews that will answer the new questions around gender in HMIS.
