The answer for three major issues facing Health and Human Social Services Organizations!

Lay of the Land:

Health and Human Social Services Organizations are growing more and more proficient in the collection of client data.  This is evident in how organizations are utilizing this data to verify eligibility for programs and services.  This process serves two purposes, to ensure resources are delegated to where they are most needed, and to guarantee vital funding compliance procedures are followed.  While the information is critical to the survival and efficiency of every HHSSO, the steps taken, and resources committed to this process are a time-consuming and a large fiscal expense.

Whether your organization is working on paper forms or the most advanced software system, your organization is still faced with fixed budgets, restricted funding, and reducing cost. All of these outside influences exist while increasing efficiency.  This idea is universal in any organization, but few sectors feel its sting more sorely than Health and Human Social Services Organizations.

As an HHSSO community, there has been a large shift toward electronic data collection and reporting.  With most established providers it is critical to utilize case management software to collect and store data.  The introduction of the “Case Management” software options has reformed the Social Services Industry. CaseWorthy has Revolutionized the industry again by changing the way HHSSO interact with their community.

The Issues:

With the list of challenges facing HHSS organizations growing by the minute, let’s focus on the most impactful as related to increasing efficiency and automating business processes.

  1. Intake and Eligibility – The timely and laborious process of collecting client data, and assessing eligibility.
  2. Service Availability – Verification of availability in your organization’s programs, and the referral out for services that may be exhausted or not offered by your organization.
  3. Access to Client Data Across the Community – What happens to your clients when they walk out the door? What services are they utilizing in the community?  What are the referral outcomes?
