Why social programs need to change
Aging populations, new and more complex family configurations, and more rapid job changes are just a few of the unprecedented societal factors that are forcing a reexamination of how social programs and services are funded, regulated, delivered and measured.
Visionary social organizations understand that the way forward is not simply implementing limited, discrete changes, but to strategically reinvent the entire organization and define new program models based on a vision for the future. Technology plays a critical role in this transformation, helping social programs to deliver better outcomes with more speed, agility and effectiveness.
And now, mobile technology is bringing the transformation of social programs to a new level. Real-time access to case files and the ability for on-the-fly updates, are enabling caseworkers to be more accurate, efficient and responsive to client needs than ever before.
