Webinar Overview

The mission of child welfare agencies is to keep children safe. However, caseworkers don’t have timely access to the information they need to make critical safety decisions. They lack enough one-on-one time spent with vulnerable children and families, which impacts mission-driven work such as family finding. 

IT is charged with supporting that mission by empowering caseworkers with the right tools, but must also be concerned with security, integration with existing and legacy systems, and government regulations. 

Due to CCWIS, state and local agencies are modernizing for tomorrow. There’s a way to help caseworkers be more effective today and position agencies for success in the future with a compliant, secure, modular, and easy to integrate solution. 

The Governing Institute and a panel of experts discuss how child welfare agencies can meet IT requirements and empower caseworkers to make informed, confident decisions that will positively impact children’s lives.

Register for this free, On Demand Webinar now to hear how you can:

  • Administer a solution that fits your CCWIS strategy AND helps caseworkers be effective today
  • Help caseworkers quickly understand critical information from past and present by analyzing case content with artificial intelligence capabilities
  • Uncover “dark data” – critical, but hidden case information in an unstructured format such as photos, emails, psychological reports, medical reports
