Community Information Exchange

The CIE is an emerging regional coordinated entry system that connects client data across health and social service providers led by the United Way.

Our Values

The St. Louis Regional Data Alliance recognizes that our work can (and should) take many forms. All of our efforts, however, work to pursue our shared values outlined below:

Data is About People

At the core of all of our work is a focus on the people that drive data practices across the region. Without trust and strong relationships, no collaborative data effort can be successful. 

Sharing Data Requires Shared Infrastructure

The RDA works to build innovative, sustainable, and powerful data tools that remain at our collective fingertips instead of disappearing at the end of each project.

Collaborative Data Drives Collective Action

St. Louis’ biggest data challenges are collective, not isolated within individual organizations, geographies, or issues. We aim to help data actors across to region to act holistically in their approach to tackling critical regional concerns.
