Integrated data systems (IDS) are those that link records for individuals across data sources and agencies (e.g. linking school achievement records to child welfare records for each child). IDSs are becoming more prevalent and widely discussed in the policy world as well as throughout NNIP. 

This panel will discuss the purpose behind the development of their IDS, what their organizational motivation was, how the process of setting up the system unfolded, the length of time, leadership, funding, challenges, and success.
