This project will develop and implement a universal peer support data collection platform that can provide real-time outcome data on peer programs statewide. Outcome-based data collection can be used to secure future funding and demonstrate cost savings for long-term sustainability of peer services. This data platform would be available to any entity utilizing peer services statewide with real-time data outcomes from all programs collectively. Funding will be used to develop and host the statewide data collection platform for peer support programs and will help build a stronger business infrastructure through hiring administrative support staff to support the growing use of peers throughout the state. This new staff will help oversee the data platform, collection, and analysis and assist with general administrative duties for the organization.
