Innovating to Help Children and Families with a Statewide CCWIS Solution
Within the State of Arkansas, the Department of Human Services (DHS) Division of Children and Family Services (DCFS) works to ensure children of all ages have a safe and stable home every day. DCFS receives over 30,000 reports of maltreatment each year and cares for more than 11,000 children who are in in-home and out-of-home placements.
Addressing the complex needs of these children, youth, and families with a focus on safety, permanency and well-being necessitates that the critical work of caregivers be supported by modern technology designed specifically for child welfare.
Transforming Child Welfare through Case Coordination and Integration
RedMane is helping Arkansas implement just such a system.
The ARfocus project is delivering a new Comprehensive Child Welfare Information System (CCWIS) to the State.
It uses RedMane’s purpose-built mCase Child Welfare solution, configured to Arkansas’ policies and practices, to equip caseworkers with the tools they need to spend more time on strengthening families and protecting children and less on paperwork.
The mCase mobile app, which even works outside of cellular and WiFi range, enables staff to be as productive in the community as they are in the office. And mCase’s Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and modular structure support integration with State and other systems so caseworkers have the full picture of a family when making crucial decisions.
