Name Error

To avoid duplicate client record creation, a full first and last name should be recorded whenever possible. If you have a full first and last name, make sure the client record is updated and the Name Data Quality field changed to, “ Full name reported.”
  1. Enter EDA mode to the correct project provider.
  2. Backdate to the Project Start Date of the client’s first enrollment in your program.
    1. Navigate to the Client Profile tab.
  3. Search for and enter the client record
  4. Navigate to the Client Profile tab.
  5. Click the edit pencil next to Client Record.
  6. Update name and name data quality elements.
  7. Click Save & Exit.

If you are only able to obtain a partial, street name, or code name, leave as is.

Note: Anonymous clients are  no longer created in HMIS, and can cause name data quality errors. 

If you are serving someone that was entered with an anonymous client profile please contact the helpdesk to get the client record updated. Click here for additional information on how to create a closed record.
