Client:Black & Veatch
Across North America, each of county’s social services are starting to scan all of their client case files and DHS would like to find an enterprise solution for them. DHS would like to see these files become part of their current FileNet solution. Each county could have their own document class and security. With the State Office staff having only the access that the counties would request. They could email links to the documents that the State Office staff need to review, creating a quicker turnaround and less paper.
DHS is currently looking at possibly rolling out a telemedicine solution.

Several hospitals are looking at providing clinical and professional support of a licensed pharmacist to the Human Service Centers.
