Knowledge of processes, methods, and results are critical ingredients in facilitating change in practice and policy. Acquired knowledge at all levels of the SOC must be fed back to all parts of the system. For that knowledge to be useful, it must be derived from a rigorous, reliable, and valid data system that is in place and routinely utilized. This webinar focuses on the architecture of a data system and how data from that system can be used to improve practice and inform policymakers. Click here to download accompanying handout.
