Results & Benefits

Since implementing Traverse social workers spend more quality face-to-face time with families. They have a holistic view of critical case information, which they can apply to making informed, confident decisions focused on safety and outcomes, not just meeting mandates. Social workers hit deadlines and feel more efficient and effective, which has reduced their stress. As a result, families receive services faster and experience better case continuity, which Houston County DHS believes will lead to improved outcomes now and in the future.

BENEFITS:
  • Ease of collecting and viewing information
  • Holistic view of cases for clients
  • More quality time with families
  • Efficient processes that save 1-2 hours per day, per worker
  • Less stress on social workers

I'm big on efficiencies and using technology. If you're not using the latest and greatest software, you're behind. This is an opportunity to try and expand the potential capabilities within our Human Services.

MORE QUALITY TIME WITH FAMILIES

Reduced Stress

I honestly remember months ago feeling super overwhelmed with lots of assessments to do, lots of case notes to do, lots of stuff to get done, lots of filing to get done. My filing had been piling up. And now I'm feeling like I'm doing a better job of staying on top of things. I feel much more caught up and at ease.
