Data Collection

CYSA is currently working with DCF and DillingerRad to automate statewide data collection from individual YSB software platforms to a shared statewide database. This multi-year project will significantly streamline data collection and will allow for more consistent and real time data to be collected, analyzed and used to help drive the work.
