Bitfocus has created the Client Model to allow for analysis across the various ways clients may come in contact with the Continuum of Care system.
- Clients where only an initial intake (profile screen) was done
- Assessments like the VI-SPDAT
The model is designed to give insight into:
- Non-HMIS analysis
- For those communities that utilize Clarity Human Services for purposes other than HMIS
- Call Centers (211)
- Needs Assessment
- Diversion Programs
- Unmet Needs
The model includes the following:
- All, undeleted, clients in a Clarity Instance
- A streamlined version of the fields from the HMIS Performance Model
- All deleted data for the client:
- Custom Fields - This folder will contain any custom dimensions you may create for the Look
- Agency Creating Profile - Includes dimensions about the Agency which created the client Profile screen
- Bed and Unit Inventory - Similar to the Bed and Unit Inventory fields found on the HMIS Performance model
- Client Addresses - Brings information entered from the Location tab in the client's Clarity record
- Client Alerts - Fields concerning the system client alerts feature available in Clarity
- Client Assessments (and Custom) - Includes fields from standalone assessments like the VI-SPDAT. The custom folder includes any custom fields used on assessments and published to Data Analysis.
- Presumed Chronic - This calculation evaluates if a client might be considered chronically homeless. This is not an official HUD designation.
- Client Contacts - These fields are drawn from the Contact tab of a client's Clarity record
- Client Custom - This folder will show custom fields that are created and included on the Profile screen and then published to data analysis
- Client Field Interactions - these fields are from the Location tab of Clarity (see Location Tab Overview)
- Client Interactions - these fields report on the times the client's Clarity record was "touched" (see Client Interaction section for more details)
- Client Notes - Includes notes that are both connected to a program enrollment and are standalone.
- Clients - Fields are from the Profile screen. Custom Profile fields are included in this section.
- Coordinated Entry Event - Includes dimensions to meet the Data Standards for 4.20
- Enrollments - This section includes dimensions related to the enrollment:
- Project Start & End Dates
- Household Configuration
- Average Days in Project
- Latest Move-in Date
- Days from Project Start to Move-in
- Goals - Fields from the Goals screen.
- Program Folders - See HMIS Performance Model for more details
- Release of Information - Information regarding the date and documentation of the client's Release of Information
- Service Folders - See HMIS Performance Model
The fields/sections described below are unique to the Client Model.
Client Interaction and Last Interaction sections
These sections explores the times (or last time) a client interacted with the Continuum of Care system. Fields are:
- Deleted (Yes/No) - Is the interaction deleted in Clarity
- Interacting Agency - Agency which recorded the interaction
- Interaction Date - Returns the date of the interaction
- Interaction Type
- Standalone assessment
- Annual/Status/Follow-up assessment
- Client Address Update/Addition
- Client Contact
- Client Note
- Profile Update - Any update to the profile screen
- Program - Any update to a program enrollment
- Referral - Coordinated Entry system interaction
- Release of Information - Any update or new Release of Information
- New Client - If client profile was created less than two hours ago, "New Client" will be displayed and the information will be updated within two hours
- Days Since Last Interaction
Last Exit Destination (Enrollments)
This field will return the latest destination recorded for a client exiting from a program. This is useful for programs with multiple enrollments for a client.

Reminder: The client model includes deleted data. (enrollments, assessments, services, etc.) If needed, remember to filter out deleted items.
