Q: What is the time frame for collecting MOQA SP and
A: The pilot period for collecting MOQA
SP and SDR data is January 1, 2019 through June 30, 2019.
Counties should collect data for all SPP and SDR activities
during that time period.
Q: Can I use the MOQA surveys to collect data outside of
the pilot period?
A: Yes! You can use the MOQA data collection
tools to collect data at any time, but only data for activities
between January 1, 2019 and June 30, 2019 will be included in the
pilot MOQA SP and SDR reports. We plan to conduct a robust,
statewide MOQA SP and SDR data collection in FY 2019-20.
Q: Are counties required to collect MOQA data and submit
it to CIBHS for inclusion in statewide MOQA reports?
A: No, participation in MOQA is not required.
However, MOQA provides a unique opportunity for counties to shape
the way outcomes data is collected and reported in California,
and the more counties who participate, the better!
Q: Can I change my county’s authorized eBHS
A: Yes. To change your county’s authorized eBHS
users, the county’s MOQA contact person should email Samantha
Spangler at email@example.com with the
name and email address of the users to be added and/or removed.
Q: What should I do if my county wants to have more than
2 eBHS users?
A: At this time, DHCS and CIBHS are only able to
guarantee access to eBHS for 2 users per county. However,
additional licenses may be available depending on the number of
counties that choose to use eBHS to collect MOQA data. Counties
can inquire about the availability of additional licenses through
CIBHS by contacting Samantha Spangler at firstname.lastname@example.org. Counties
can also choose to purchase additional licenses directly from
eCenter Research by contacting Steve Weatherbee at email@example.com.
Q: My county wants to change their data collection
approach. Is that possible?
A: Yes. CIBHS and DHCS are asking counties to
select their preferred data collection option so we can estimate
the amount and types of support needed during the pilot period,
but counties are free to use any or all data collection methods
during the period. CIBHS is available to provide technical
assistance to counties who wish to change their data collection
