Interoperability and Data Sharing View all reports on this topic

Topic Overview

This portfolio promotes data sharing and collaboration to enable data-driven service delivery and program administration. Examples include:

  • interoperability initiatives to adopt common standards and practices;
  • efforts to streamline eligibility determination and enrollment across multiple programs;
  • identification of improper payments and prevention of waste, fraud and abuse; and
  • coordination of federal financial support across complex data systems involving multiple programs.

Projects focus on data sharing both within and across programs, as exemplified by states’ implementation of Integrated Data Systems (IDS) and Eligibility and Enrollment (E&E) systems. Supports include providing direct technical assistance, development of toolkits and other guides, promoting data standardization and architecture, and coordination of federal resources and support.
