2020 HMIS Data Standards: Coordinated Entry

While Social Solutions has included basic template forms for HUD’s new Coordinated Entry elements, many people have been recording this data for some time now.
You can incorporate these existing fields into your HMIS Data Pulls by updating the Touchpoint tags and element pseudonyms to match these specifications.
 In order to link your existing forms, you must add the appropriate form tag or this process will not work. A **** in the pseudonym indicates user-defined text (limited to alpha-numeric characters only, no spaces).
