Integrated reports and information system data dictionary

The Integrated Reports and Information System (IRIS) records key data about clients and service delivery for:
• Child FIRST (where Child FIRST is not integrated into The Orange Door), and
• Services under the umbrella of ‘Family Services’ including Integrated Family Services, Cradle to Kinder, Intensive Family Services (200 hours), Changing Futures, Evidence-Based Programs, Families First, Aboriginal Family Preservation and Restoration and Stronger Families.
There is a need for consistent data that provides the department and agencies with a well-defined understanding of the client group, service provision, demand and complex needs. This data dictionary has been developed to promote greater consistency and reliability of IRIS Child FIRST and Family Services data.
