Data System Disruptions Brief: Preparation and Response Considerations for Part C and Part B 619 Leaders

This resource is intended to help Part C and Part B 619 leaders understand, prepare for, and respond to various types of data system disruptions. Part C and Part B 619 programs rely on their data systems to support everyday operations. Many states have experienced an event or circumstance that has limited or restricted their data system(s) from being accessed or used as planned. Disruptions to a state’s data system may jeopardize access to accurate information required to meet a wide range of data use needs.

Because states vary considerably in how they are structured, in this session we discussed different considerations and methods for determining allocations to facilitate equitable use of early intervention resources statewide.
