How to Standardize and Open Social Services Data in your City

Mike Conlow, Head of Technology Consulting, Blue State Digital 
Darnell Sessoms, Product Manager, NYC Mayor's Office for Economic Opportunity
Haiyan Sui, Director of Technology Development, NYC Mayor's Office for Economic Opportunity

DESCRIPTION: Learn how New York City used data to create two products, ACCESS NYC and Growing Up NYC, to make social services more accessible—by using simple technology, clear language, mobile-focused design, and usability testing to put vital resources into the hands of more people. Both products are powered by the Benefits and Programs API, a first of its kind open dataset that includes benefit, program, and resource information on health and human services available to New York City residents. ACCESS NYC is also powered by an eligibility rules engine that screens for eligibility for over 30 programs. NYC is currently in the process of opening the rules engine and publicly sharing the standardized elements. The team will demonstrate the integration of these new social service datasets and walk through the standard elements so that they can be replicated in your city.  

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Health and human service policymakers and program managers and open data managers.
