Big Data - Big Discoveries!

Revealing patterns of behavior and outcomes using advanced analytical capabilities and predictive modeling

This presentation was prepared for a national ISM conference in Baltimore (IT Solutions Management for Human Services, an affiliate of the American Public Human Services Association). It provides an overview of the data capacity DSHS has established over two decades and gives examples of how the data is used to improve program outcomes and inform policy both administratively and at the state and national level. The content was presented by the Senior Director of Planning, Performance and Accountability in August 2012.
