Logan Arnold is a Health Data Analyst embedded within the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) Office of Quality Assurance for Children’s Programs. Logan works closely and directly with DHHR colleagues daily monitoring children’s mental health services throughout West Virginia. He uses his strong quantitative and computational skillset to analyze data and produce regular reports for a variety of critical program and services, including residential services and discharge planning efforts, mental health screenings, and referral pathways. Logan’s analysis and reporting are a critical component of DHHR’s partnership with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to improve West Virginia’s children’s mental health system.
Logan’s primary focus area is population health and public health surveillance. However, his monitoring of children’s mental health services involves the assessment of behavioral health, home and community-based services, and even Medicaid services throughout West Virginia. Logan leverages health data and analytics to provide data-driven insights that are used to improve decision-making, service delivery, and, ultimately, the mental health of children in West Virginia.
