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.

Founded in 1998 by Dr. John S. Lyons, the Praed Foundation seeks to support transformational activities in human services, with a special emphasis on improving the lives of children and families. The Foundation has a variety of projects that supports its mission including managing flexible funding for youth with mental health needs in the juvenile justice system. The primary work of the Foundation is in support of a mass collaboration of individuals who seek to use evidence-based assessments as an approach to working together to maintain the focus of human service enterprise on the people they serve. As such, the Praed Foundation maintains the copyrights on the Child and Adolescent Needs and Strengths (CANS), Adult Needs and Strengths Assessment (ANSA), Family Advocacy and Support Tool (FAST), Safe Systems Improvement Tool (SSIT), Readiness Inventory for Successful Entrepreneurship (RISE), and Crisis Assessment Tool (CAT) to ensure that they remain free for anyone to use who shares this commitment.
