Today, Open Path is used by state departments, county government, municipalities, and nonprofits nationwide. As each adopter looks to implement their own innovative initiatives, and to adapt the platform for their local priority needs, everyone benefits.
From reporting and analysis options, to complex workflows around medical provider and Medicaid payer integrations, to HUD-compliant HMIS data entry tools for service providers, anything added to the platform becomes available to all users.
Collaboration driving innovation
In practice, this shared model means all new features and enhancements are freely available to all users. Yet it also creates a profound opportunity for collaboration, where organizations work together to define and fund systems development that they have direct control over.
This software has been built in the spirit of helping those in need of housing, and we encourage any qualified developers who want to participate to contribute.
The source code for Open Path is available at https://github.com/greenriver, which includes the repositories ‘hmis-warehouse,’ ‘boston-cas,’ and ‘hmis-frontend.’ Developers and code contributors, send us a pull request!
