RedMane and NCCD Partner to Automate Child Welfare Assessments in Saskatchewan
RedMane Technology and NCCD are pleased to announce the successful automation and certification of the Structured Decision Making® (SDM) decision-support assessments in RedMane’s mCase case management platform, the child welfare system used by organizations in Saskatchewan, Canada.
Saskatchewan’s mCase implementations are the first to have the SDM® assessments fully automated and certified. RedMane’s team automated the assessments, while NCCD certified that the build conformed to the design and logic of the assessments, which were customized and jointly created by NCCD and the Saskatchewan Ministry of Social Services, Child Protection Services.
Certification by NCCD, a requirement of automation, ensures that the mCase SDM assessments function as designed and will work appropriately and helpfully for Saskatchewan child protection workers.
