The nation’s federal, state, and local Health and Human Services (H/HS) systems are the cornerstone to building a strong, dynamic, and healthy nation. Many H/HS system leaders are readily adopting new, effective, and responsive services that are outcome-focused, and that identify and address root causes of challenges with the assistance of new services and capabilities built on analytical insights. These leaders are evolving their organization from a traditional model based on regulatory compliance and programmatic outputs, to a model that works seamlessly across sectors and engages families and whole communities in addressing the multi-dimensional socioeconomic issues that its families face. Critical to moving toward this model is a strong foundation of a health and human services organization that views data and data systems as fundamental along with the related workforce capacity comprised of personnel who are skilled in driving decisions based on analytics.

To that end, the American Public Human Services Association (APHSA), Optum, The Lewin Group and Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago sponsored a two-and-a-half day symposium for sixty-one state and local health and human services (H/HS) thought leaders from eighteen states on July 20–22, 2018.

This session will feature state participants of our symposium who will present a range of findings and results they’ve advanced coming out of that event. The topics will explore current practices and operations taking place in the H/HS system as well as approaches and challenges to building analytic capacity and culture within their own agencies.
