How to Answer Destination when Destination Data Not Obtained
2.1. How to Answer Destination when Destination Data Not Obtained
For clients who exit a program without having had contact with staff at exit regarding their destination and their destination is unknown to staff, HMIS data entry personnel must choose "No exit interview completed (HUD)" or "Data not collected (HUD)" for Destination. Both answers mean the same thing!
As always, when staff does know the client's destination, whether through an exit interviewor otherwise, they should select that destination out of the list of destinations in the dropdown.
