Developing a Collaborative Planning Team

December 10, 2019 - 5:03pm

A collaborative planning team (CPT) is essential for managing the data-related aspects of a project, including those funded through Pay for Success (PFS) or another performance-based financing structure. A CPT is composed of stakeholders with access to administrative data from multiple service systems and could be tasked with gathering and analyzing linked data, understanding the population needs across systems or how services are used, or designing an intervention to address a social problem. The team shares data for a specific project and may disassemble once the data-sharing goals are accomplished. A CPT is different from a working group for integrated data systems (IDS), which establishes ongoing data-sharing, although a CPT can be useful for larger IDS efforts.
