The Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) is a computerized, web-based data collection system that tracks the nature and scope of human service needs at individual agencies as well as across Indiana. Overall, HMIS enables The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to gather data on a national-level regarding the nature of homelessness over time.
Specifically, HMIS can be used to produce an unduplicated count of homeless persons, understand patterns of service use, and measure the effectiveness of homeless programs. HUD and policymakers use HMIS data to continually improve homeless policy and decision making at the federal, state, and local levels.
