Status Update Assessment


The Status Update Assessment must be completed within Clarity HMIS whenever there is a change to an individual's disability type/status, income, benefits, or health insurance while the client is actively enrolled in a program.  This information is used to track changes over time. There is no limit on the amount of Status Update Assessments that can be entered at any point throughout an active Program enrollment.


From an active client enrollment, go to "Assessments" in the program level navigation.  Select "START" next to "Status Update Assessment."

Update any of the information that has changed since either the Program Enrollment or the last Status Update Assessment. 

  • Disabling Conditions and Barriers
  • Health and Wellness / Health Insurance
  • Employment
  • Monthly Income and Sources
  • Non-Cash Benefits

Select "SAVE & CLOSE" (or "SAVE & NEXT" if completing the Status Update Assessment for additional household members.
