The HIFIS Implementation Guide

Description

The HIFIS Toolkit assists communities in the implementation of Coordinated Access and is composed of four guides.

1. The HIFIS Implementation Guide

2. The HIFIS Installation Guide

3. The HIFIS Configuration Guide

4. The HIFIS User Guide

The HIFIS Implementation Guide is intended to support those who will have to turn strategies and plans into actions regarding the deployment and maintenance of HIFIS. This guide provides general information to get started on: 1) the governance structure and its considerations, 2) implementation planning, 3) the deployment strategy, 4) the delivery of client support services and 5) the approach to system maintenance. The guide also includes templates to support some implementation activities. Implementation of an HMIS is not a linear process; its scope and sophistication will vary according to the coordinated access approach, and the size and the structure of the community. Therefore, the HIFIS Implementation Guide should be used as a reference document according to the community characteristics.
