About AmericaServes Evaluation
A core tenet of collective impact is the sharing of data. Consequently, all AmericaServes networks hold quarterly in progress review meetings, which are attended by program leaders, managers, providers, stakeholders and funders. At these meetings all data is shared, followed by discussion and decision making. This process and practice has resulted in an unprecedented level of transparency and provides an avenue for communication and collaboration across network stakeholders.
The cornerstone of the AmericaServes networks is the electronic case management platform, UniteUs, used by all participating providers. Through this database the program managers, networks, and providers have access to information relevant to them for making decisions and improvements. All client interactions are time stamped, and the results of services provided are all recorded and reportable.
