The cornerstone of any Health and Human Services (HHS) program is the ability to provide quality, consistent service to the populations they serve. Across the board, however, there is one common challenge: their services are delivered by networks of federal, state, local, and community-based organizations that aren’t well connected, which hinders their ability to coordinate services and meet reporting requirements. That hurts their ability to provide good service.
The key is to unify these networks so they behave more like a single, seamless system. How? By connecting people, programs, and data through modern technology that automates case and program management. With that technology in place, it can cost-effectively support strategies that address everyone’s needs, from service staff to those being served.
Two CRM Case Management Success Stories: The VA and ACF
The U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) provides care to more than 100,000 severely ill and injured veterans. This requires coordinating not only health care providers and hospitals all over the country, but also six non-clinical programs on 13 data systems and 50 regional offices with hundreds of case managers, as well as two federal agencies.

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) Program was created to provide workforce development, training and education benefits through grantee organizations. To manage a $72 million budget and 32 grantee organizations serving 30,000 citizens, the ACF pulled its networks of care together into a single case management system built on CRM technology. This system is being used by the ACF for measuring program performance but is also being used by the grantees to administer their programs, making it easier for them to comply with program reporting requirements.
