The Polk County IA Continuum of Care's Performance Measures committee needed the system performance measures run on a monthly basis, as well as a few custom measures like the use of the coordinated intake system. ICA staff in cooperation with the performance measures committee developed a paper form of this report, which was then implemented as a Tableau dashboard, so now not just the committee but the whole of the continuum can explore their data at their leisure.
The response from the committee, the board and the community has been universally positive ans we are constantly seeing this work result in real and actionable policy direction within the CoC.
