new york city plans to track every homeless person in its borders

Outreach workers need all the information they can get. It takes time to build trust with homeless persons, who won't always be forthcoming if they recently left a detox program in one area or stayed overnight in another. StreetSmart collects that data and makes it accessible to multiple workers who might come in contact with the same person. But it's also sensitive to homeless persons' privacy, locking medical information away from anyone without authorization.There's obvious advantages to giving the city a macroscopic view of homeless patterns and activity spikes -- it's the classic data-as-a-golden-bullet method of sifting through tons of information to understand a population's behaviors and trouble points. There are clear conclusions to reach when looking at what areas are more impact
