This project is the result of a collaboration between the UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH) and the Dane County Department of Human Services
DCDHS and the Dane County Board of Supervisors have identified “super-utilizers” of human
services as a population who would be more effectively served by a coordinated response. The
super-utilizer population’s needs, while possibly being met individually and in isolation, would be
better met through coordination. In an effort to meet this goal, DCDHS has asked Public Health:
Principles and Practice Master of Public Health (MPH) students at the SMPH to look at the
benefits and barriers of data integration as it relates to the super-utilizer population.
