How does SafeMeasures improve outcomes?

Theory of Change

A key difference between SafeMeasures and other business intelligence (BI) tools is our comprehensive focus on improving outcomes for children and families. By giving everyone in an agency access to timely, actionable information, SafeMeasures offers a three-pronged approach to improvement.

  1. Practice and outcomes may be monitored to provide accountability at all levels of the agency.
  2. Workers and supervisors can use SafeMeasures to identify and correct issues before they become problems that negatively impact outcomes.
  3. SafeMeasures provides dedicated tools that staff can use to prioritize work and meet deadlines.

How does SafeMeasures work?

SafeMeasures uses a nightly feed of agency case management data, uploaded to our systems via a secure, automated process. This data is processed using our highly tuned, state-of-the-art analytical system and integrated into the SafeMeasures data warehouse. Users then log into SafeMeasures to view dashboards, maps, KPIs, lists, and graphs that can be customized to best fit their needs.

Is my data secure?

Data security is and has always been our top priority. Your data is protected in multiple ways, whether en route to our servers, in our data warehouse, or in the SafeMeasures display system. Find out more here

What does SafeMeasures cost?

NCCD is a nonprofit organization, and SafeMeasures reflects a simple, comprehensive, nonprofit approach to pricing: a one-price subscription that covers all components of the SafeMeasures service. Cost is calculated by agency size, and there are no hidden license fees or charges.

A SafeMeasures subscription grants access to all agency staff. It also provides unlimited access to SafeMeasures’ acclaimed analysis and support staff, who handle the heavy lifting of data manipulation, hardware maintenance, help desk support, and more. This frees up agency analysts and support staff—or dollars that would be spent to hire them—for other tasks.

To illustrate the value of SafeMeasures, consider the five-year costs of installing Cognos, another BI tool, for a single county (Clark County, Nevada [Las Vegas]) versus the five-year costs of a SafeMeasures subscription for an entire state (Virginia).

As shown below, the cost for Las Vegas was $3,456,048. Compare that to Virginia, where the cost was $1,650,000. The BI solution cost for just one county is more than double the cost of SafeMeasures for an entire state.
