Data Hub Year 1 Update
About the Data Hub
In the age of evidence-based medicine, New York’s school-based health centers (SBHCs) currently have no statewide data collection process, unlike every other health care sector. In 2019, with essential start-up funding provided by the New York Community Trust and the Ira W. DeCamp Foundation, the New York School-Based Health Foundation partnered with the New York School-Based Health Alliance (NYSBHA) to build a powerful tool for New York SBHCs: the New York SBHC Data Hub.
Critical to SBHCs is the capacity to analyze, compare and improve individual SBHC performance and document the outcomes of SBHCs as is necessary for successful advocacy, managed care negotiations and transition to a value-based Medicaid reimbursement system.
This project builds on the results of a statewide assessment completed in August 2018 about implementation and data needs of SBHCs in New York State, funded by NYSBHA and conducted by Apex Evaluation. Generous continuation funding was provided by the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation in 2021 and renewed funding from the DeCamp Foundation in 2022. Apex Evaluation, a small data firm with deep SBHC experience, has built and operates the Hub.
In developing the Data Hub, the Foundation will rely heavily on three highly-experienced consultants, Lisa Perry, Principal of Morningside Health Strategies, LLC, Carlos Romero, Founder, President and Senior Evaluator of Apex Evaluation, and Jamie Duvall, an Evaluator and our Lead Contact at Apex.
Apex Evaluation is a firm that develops data and evaluation systems for school-based health centers. On behalf of the Community Health Care Association of NYS, Ms. Perry developed a similar data repository for New York’s FQHCs and its Center for Health Informatics. Mr. Romero has extensive experience with school-based health centers across the country, including developing data repositories for the States of New Mexico and Colorado.
Recruitment for the Data Hub Project is ongoing (see above). Currently 33% of SBHC sites statewide are participating. To join this program or get more information, contact Program Manager Lisa Perry at firstname.lastname@example.org
