Connecting the Dots YouTube Live Series

In our current “age of big data”, there is no shortage of information being collected about the people served within our helping systems.  Despite the best efforts of people working within these systems, the promise of using this information to improve the lives of all the adults, children, and families being served can sometimes feel a bit like a distant, far-off dream for those doing the work. 

Mr. Mark Lardner, LCSW-C, the Senior Policy Analyst at the Center for Innovation in Population Health at the University of Kentucky, is interested in hearing stories from people currently working to connect the dots in our helping systems; using their data to seamlessly move from the delivery of person-centered care based on individual aspirations to transformational system level outcomes.

We are pleased to announce the launch of the first series of our IPH Center Live events, “Connecting the Dots: The Making of Meaningful Metrics”. 

This live video podcast will be an in-depth, and broadly accessible, exploration of innovative approaches for translating assessment data into meaningful metrics across the helping professions. 

Each month a different guest will share their insights on how to use data to better understand the transformational process through the use of aggregated data.  These interactive episodes will air the second Tuesday of each month and be archived with helpful resources on our IPH Center live website.  We hope you will join us on this journey to uncover how applied person-centered data is moving us closer to transformational systems that work for all people.

Dr. Scott Fairhurst

Dr. Scott Fairhurst, the Vice President, Outcomes & Evaluation, Analytics & Training at Pacific Clinics, a large Community Based Mental Health provider in California, where he is focused on increasing the evidence-based work of the leaders, supervisors, and direct-service employees. Because of the talented employees in his departments, that “evidence base” includes views of the entire agency aggregate, clinician’s caseloads, and progress of individual clients… all of which is updated daily. This allows leaders, employees, and clients to have established facts around which they can share their stories and plan their next steps. Dr. Fairhurst will demonstrate the innovative design of the Pacific Clinics’ electronic health record and share his thoughts on the application of reports within direct care settings.
