The St. Louis Regional Data Alliance (RDA), housed at the University of Missouri – St. Louis, builds shared data infrastructure and supports strong data actors who use quality data to improve people’s lives. The RDA convenes a collaborative of over 360 members representing local governments, nonprofits, funders, and universities, serves as the “data backbone” of the St. Louis Community Information Exchange, and is a developer of the Regional Data Exchange, a shared open data portal with over 400 local datasets. It is also leading an ACL Social Care Referrals Challenge initiative focused on aging services data standardization — and recently published a white paper on Tackling Data Dilemmas in Social Care Coordination with Open Referral, a national interoperability initiative.
