This new pilot study, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Systems for Action research program, tests the feasibility of a multi-sector, tribally-operated data system and dashboard for documenting health and social service needs and service referrals among youth members of the Coeur d’Alene tribe.

The integrated data system is designed to achieve data sovereignty and improve timeliness and coordination in the delivery of health and social services for the tribal youth population, thereby dismantling forms of structural racism and inequity created by reliance on fragmented non-tribal service delivery and financing systems.

The study is conducted by the Coeur d’Alene Tribe including the Indian Child Welfare Program, the Marimn Health tribal medical system, the tribal Department of Education, and other tribal agencies in collaboration with the University of Idaho Extension Program.

Systems for Action (S4A) is a signature research program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) that is housed in the Department of Health Systems, Management and Policy. S4A research builds a Culture of Health by rigorously testing new ways of connecting the nation’s fragmented medical, social, and public health systems.
