Learn about Integrated Data Systems (IDSs) and how they foster social innovation through quickening the knowledge to policy to practice development cycle. IDSs accomplish this by linking administrative data across multiple agencies to monitor and track how services are being used and to what affect. IDSs provide a more complete account of how different policies and programs affect the individuals they’re intended to serve, which provides agency decision makers with the Actionable Intelligence necessary to better address the often interconnected needs of the citizens more efficiently and effectively. In addition to these purposes, IDSs are also used to test social policy innovations through high speed, low-cost randomized control trials (RCTs) and other quasi-experimental approaches (e.g., continuous quality improvement, benefit cost analysis).

This channel is managed by Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy's (AISP) (aisp.upenn.edu). The AISP Network is a professional group of individuals within county organizations, state agencies, and universities that operate integrated data systems (IDSs) across the U.S. The AISP Network was formed in 2009 to address the lack of national standards for integrated data systems. Network members recognized this void as a major roadblock for state, county, and/or local governments that want to establish an integrated data system in their jurisdictions.
