Here are the collaborators and our roles:
2. IL Department of Innovation and Technology (DoIT) provides the critical IT resources – hardware, software, database, and developers - that implemented and continue to support this service. DoIT closely collaborated with the SPIDER Team to reimagine, redesign, and launch this resource in 2018. DoIT also provides 24/7 user support and issue tracking through its helpdesk team.
3. The Mental Health Services & Policy Program (MHSPP) (within Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine) has a mission to provide research, evaluation, outcomes management, technical assistance and training that helps improve the lives of individuals and families who receive publicly funded mental health services. Their team of analysts and health interviewers have been supporting SPD and now SPIDER since 2002, delivering full-time data maintenance, updating over 4,000 programs on a yearly basis, adding new programs and agencies, and removing invalid programs to ensure that our users have the most accurate and appropriate referral information available. The MHSPP SPIDER Team provides in-person and online training as well as on demand one-on-one customer service to make sure our users derive maximum benefit from SPIDER.
