The needs of a community are often unique and require a custom system. COMET offers a data collection solution which is flexible and can be focused around your community's goals and indicators. We're always excited to learn about new approaches being utilized to move communities forward and improve outcomes.
A proven resource for supporting collaborative projects, COMET can support your community and its need for a secure, flexible data system. For over 50 years, our partner Children's Institute has been working with communities to improve outcomes for children and that experience has informed the development of COMET. We bring expertise in evaluation and community partnerships to create a product adaptable to your community's priorities, from early childhood education to high school graduation.
One of our county customers in New York is home to a primarily rural population with some small urban centers and their needs correspond with that geographic make-up. The focus of their work with COMET has been the early ages, looking at everything from prenatal care to school readiness. The programs vary in their approach, some occur in-home, some are at centers and they even go into the hospital and connect with new parents there. The move to COMET is helping the county bring together data across all their programs so they can track the trajectory of a single child from birth to kindergarten.
