Homeless Management Information System (HMIS)
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.

ClientTrack is a software that drives efficiency into managing and coordinating all core aspects of a social mission organization.
Specifically, the IHCDA utilizes ClientTrack to track the nature and scope of domestic violence and human service needs at an individual agency. The DV Client Track implementation is one of the best softwares available for case and data management. It is a closed system that provides the necessary tools to manage a large volume of data about clients- including housing status, case management, demographics, crisis calls and more.
The DV implementation of Client Track is ground breaking here in Indiana. We invite you to learn more or join us in making history.
