Application Instructions: Please reply by e-mail: Jason Kuhar ( Include as an attachment your CV or resume. Please describe relevant experience. We will be asking for two references. In the subject heading include the words 'CAISI Project J2EE Programmer'. Client Access to Integrated Services and Information (CAISI)
Background: The CAISI project aims to reduce the plight of chronic homelessness by enhancing the intergration of care between agencies at the individual and population levels using an electronic information system. The project includes 1) the development of the open source system software and 2) building community and agency capacity in using the system to integrate care between agencies. At the individual level, the project includes the rapid assessment of clients, referral to appropriate shelters and agencies, managing waiting lists into services, support multi-agency case management ultimately leading to client placement into appropriate housing or community placement. At the population level, the project enhances the ability of the community to gather data that can be used by activists and decision makers to help effect positive social change leading to the end of chronic homelessness. That is, advocate for more affordable and supportive housing and more appropriate facilities (e.g. client centred harm reduction long term care programs) for clients the community currently finds difficulty caring for. The system is client centered, clients give access to agencies to enhance the integration of care they receive. Clients are helping inform how the system will function. The project is being developed by front line agencies to improve the care of their clients. The software is an enhancement and expansion of the OSCAR McMaster system, an open source Ministry of Health approved electronic medical record. It includes integration with major community IT networks among agencies caring for those who are homeless. These include shelters, drop in centres, outreach teams, hospitals, public health and Toronto ambulance. The approach is an 'open development' or 'just do it' approach with a release early and often philosophy. Users are co-developers who work with program developers and software programmers to make rapid improvements to the system on a real time basis. The software is open source meaning that it is owned by the community and can be freely downloaded and enhanced by anyone.
