Kansas Children’s Cabinet and Trust Fund

Common Measures Initiative

The Kansas Children’s Cabinet uses DAISEY to support its innovative Common Measures Initiative across its funded portfolio of early childhood programs. DAISEY is the shared measurement system that collects consistent individual-level information about early childhood interventions and measurable outcomes achieved by programs across the state of Kansas, including Early Childhood Block Grants, Community-Based Child Abuse and Prevention Programs, and Children’s Initiative Fund programs. DAISEY helps support data-driven decisions by the Cabinet about what works for Kansas children and families.

 

Kansas Department of Health and Environment

Bureau of Family Health

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment’s Bureau of Family Health is using DAISEY to build a strong data infrastructure at the state and local level to demonstrate the impact of Family Health programming on children, youth and families across Kansas. DAISEY is the HIPAA-compliance shared measurement system that collects information about Title services provided by Aid to Local grantees, including departments of public health and nonprofit organizations. DAISEY helps the Bureau of Family Health fulfill federal reporting requirements and provide technical assistance in support of coordinated client-centered services and programs for women, children, and families.

 

Maternal Infant Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV)

Home Visiting Outcomes

DAISEY is used as a shared measurement system by several states in support of its MIECHV benchmark reporting requirements or state-funded home visiting programs. DAISEY offers a sustainable, cost-effective system for states to collect or integrate consistent information about families served and outcomes achieved by evidence-based home visiting programs across a state. DAISEY provides state agencies and local implementing agencies with a user-friendly system to store home visiting data and to deliver high quality reports on benchmark progress or continuous quality improvement efforts. Telling the story of home visiting success with individual-level data is DAISEY’s strength.

 

Kansas Department for Children and Families

Kansas Early Head Start Programs

The Kansas Department for Children and Families supports several Early Head Start programs across the state and uses DAISEY to collect and aggregate federal program reporting requirements. DAISEY is the shared measurement system that brings data together from multiple programs to support DCF’s continued monitoring, reporting, and technical assistance to early childhood programs that it supports in Kansas.
