On May 26, 2016, the Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families issued the Final Rule for a next generation of state child welfare systems called Comprehensive Child Welfare Information Systems (CCWIS). The scope of changes from the existing SACWIS scheme to the CCWIS Final Rule are dramatic and sweeping. The new regulation and the CCWIS framework are intended to assist child welfare agencies in developing information management systems that leverage new innovations and technology in order to better serve children and families.
Leveraging KPMG’s deep knowledge and experience in the health and human services sector, and specificially child welfare, this issue brief presents an overview of the CCWIS Final Rule and discusses potential opportunities and next steps for states.
