"Integrated Data to Support Practice:  Lessons from Allegheny County"

Public Lecture, Friday, Oct. 27, 2017, Woodward Hall 338, 11:30-12:30.

 

Abstract: Allegheny County provides one approach to using integrated data to support practice.  Innovations include integrated data at the person-level to support care, predictive risk modeling to support worker decision making, and cross-systems analysis to support community planning and management decision making.  Housed in local government, Allegheny County's data warehouse contains over a billion records from over a million distinct people, including data from child protective services, homeless services, behavioral health, criminal justice, and public education.  This presentation will provide details on this work and lessons in how to develop analytics to support decision making.

Erin appears as part of a collaborative initiative between the Ethics Center and Data Science Initiative on the use of data for social good
