2023 HMIS Privacy and Security Training - Available Now!

This training reviews the Data Privacy and Security Standards required in the Federal HMIS Standards.  We address the HMIS User and the agency's responsibility related to HMIS Security.  We review Client Rights related to HMIS data entry, explain Data Visibility, and review the HMIS Release of Information.
