Uploads and Links
We support B2B links to other systems
CSnet is built with an Application Programming Interface (API). This means that CSnet can establish a system-to-system connection to any other modern API-enabled software system – this is the way of the future and significantly reduces the burden of reporting to multiple funding agencies.
We connect automatically to government reporting systems like DSS Data Exchange
DEX – CSnet automatically uploads minimum set and partnership data to DSS DataExchange (DEX) in real time for all Commonwealth and State DEX reporting programs – no need to manually run reports, no duplicate data entry outside of CSnet.
CSnet will also automatically generate your client surveys and upload data mapped to report against DSS Data Exchange SCORE Outcomes framework.
We connect to other data integrations in government reporting systems
Data integration from CSnet supports monthly reporting without the need for duplicate manual data entry to other government reporting systems:
Victorian Human Services Data Collection approvals
IRIS – CSnet is the only approved client information system with system data integration capacity for reporting to IRIS, covering Vic Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) funded programs, covering Child FIRST and Family Services programs to record client and service data (including referrals and trackbacks) to comply with the provisions of the Children, Youth and Families Act 2005 and the Strategic framework for Family Services in Victoria
VADC – CSnet is an approved client information system with system data integration capacity for reporting the Victorian Alcohol and Drug Data Collection (VADC), covering Alcohol and Drug Treatment providers in Victoria
Commonwealth and State Homelessness Data Collection
SHS – CSnet is an Australian Institute of Health and Welfare Approved Client Management System –complies with and approved to supply Specialist Homelessness Services (SHS) collection data to Australian Institute of Health and Welfare. All data is collected in CSnet and reported by file upload to Validata (previously called SHOR) for the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) Minimum data set
We are always looking to collaborate with our CSnet organisations and funding agencies to identify strategic initiatives to build B2B links.
Other CSnet initiatives under consideration to support CSnet organisations build B2B links include:
- CLASS reporting for Community Legal Services and Family Violence Services
- NDIS National Disability Insurance Scheme
- Vic Critical Incident Management System (CIMS)
- Medicare and telehealth links
We support back-office system links
CSnet will link through its API to other systems to streamline your back office systems, for example, payments, finance and HR systems.
We support collaboration for collective impact across organisations
CSnet has a number of innovative ways to support sharing of client information across organisations through the use of security roles built into the system, storage of consents and permissions from clients.
CSnet enables multiple organisations to work collaboratively, utilise shared communication, data collection and reporting strategies – to build motivation for cross-sector and community-wide approaches to solving complex social problems.
A number of organisations have come together to share an isolated CSnet® database, and have done so for some time. Whilst they are fully independent, from time to time, these organisations share configuration ideas and new report options as a means of both sharing practice and reducing costs. It’s a great way to build client information management expertise in a network.
