What is a unit list and how does it impact my agency?
Unit lists feed into the ShelterPoint system of HMIS. These are utilized when completing the electronic portion of the PIT, in addition, it is also used to calculate bed utilization rates in the data quality assessment.
Vocabulary has proven to be very tricky here, so here is how we will be defining things:
- A unit list is a general term referring to all of the information pertaining to how your providers' beds, apartments, and rooms are configured. This unit list will be reflected in ShelterPoint.
- A room refers to a "Family Unit", which could be an apartment for a full family, or a Single Occupancy Room. For shelters with communal sleeping areas, one room refers to the entire area.
- A bed is simply a bed - for projects that serve families, consider beds in these Unit Lists in the same way that you consider beds on your grants and contracts
