How It Works
Open Path is a data integration platform that supports care coordination, coordinated entry processes, and in-depth analysis of homeless services.
The platform began in Boston in 2016, and grew from the need to combine data from multiple HMIS installations — as close to real time as possible — to help providers coordinate service and for the CoC to run combined reports. It has since developed into a data integration platform used nationwide to allow communities and statewide organizations to:
- Combine (merge and deduplicate) HMIS records from multiple sources and multiple CoCs.
- Monitor performance, outcomes, and data quality at the state, CoC, organization, and project levels.
- Collect client assets (critical documents, release of information paperwork) centrally.
- Generate public dashboards and aggregate reports.
Multi-Sector Data Integration
In addition to HMIS data, Open Path provides the facility to consume, combine, and analyze other related data sets — medical services records, Medicaid claim history, criminal justice records, and others...
Reference Information for Providers
Allows administrators and case managers at social service and medical providers to look up individual client service histories, Medicaid enrollment details, and case management notes.
Integrated Care Planning Tools
Assign a care team, set goals, perform assessments, log case management notes, and get electronic signatures on integrated care plans. Open Path can both combine existing records from HMIS and EHR, and provides the tools for direct data entry.
