COVID-19 Rapid Response Team
The WISE Indiana COVID-19 Rapid Response Team was developed to assist in the Indiana Department of Health’s need for rapid and evidence-informed responses to complex questions about the pandemic and best practices for state response. This project facilitates rapid response and access to relevant and emerging evidence-based information for state personnel, healthcare providers and systems, managed care entities, community organizations, and all others.
To access more information, the COVID-19 Daily Digest is updated daily with relevant information for healthcare providers.
DA Caregiver Survey
Indiana FSSA’s Division of Aging (DA) is interested in implementing an innovative model to address the unmet needs of family caregivers. To better understand what supports are needed for aging individuals experiencing social isolation and caregiver burn-out, the DA is collaborating with WISE Indiana and AARP to conduct a consumer survey targeting a diverse population of caregivers for individuals 55 and older.
DMHA Data Evaluation
WISE Indiana is assisting Indiana FSSA’s Division of Mental Health and Addiction (DMHA) to help DMHA simplify and synthesize the data collection process. This will help reduce administrative burden for providers and increase capacity for client care. Additionally, it is a crucial first step in assisting DMHA to create a data strategy that will drive the initiative for all mental health and Substance Use Disorder treatment providers in the state to be data-driven in their practices.
Indiana Community Connect
Indiana Community Connect (ICC) is a web-based referral platform housed within Indiana 2-1-1 designed to help community organizations refer clients to needed services and help residents find social services. WISE Indiana asked to participate in the pilot program and provide recommendations for statewide community based organization engagement due to our expertise in community engagement through the numerous community engagement programs that Indiana CTSI has developed and participates in.
