John gave an overview of the efforts that have been undertaken by OIS in support of DHS Reorganization thus far, as follows. VENDOR REVIEW: - A number of vendors were contacted and their products reviewed to identify products that could be used to support reorganization. - Acquisition of a framework system to provide integration was identified as a key strategic option. - Cúram was identified as the only framework system that could fit our requirements. CURAM: - A framework system brings together a number of pre-defined parts, but allows for development of DHS-specific requirements. - Single Data model would allow the use of integrated data. - Much oriented towards the web (web technology) - Created rules engine which allows business people to do the business rules and so forth - 6 states are now working on this together NEXT STEPS: 1. Will be doing a technical evaluation of the system and a field test over the next 6 months - Debra will keep the committee informed of progress 2. After the evaluation, a report will be provided to cabinet 3. Separate Activity – Screening, Assessment, and Referral requirements and design - If Cúram doesn’t work, design will be developed in another technology THOUGHTS AND VIEWS: Bill Fink Importance of project - Key to supporting the reorganization lies in technology - Technology support is absolutely essential - People in CHS feel as though it takes too long to get a project up and running. Speed is an issue when it comes to this.

Steering Committee Roles and Responsibilities – Debra Herrli What is the Transformation Support Project (TSP)? - An evaluation right now 1st three months – technical evaluation 2nd three months – field testing Screening assessments and Referral - A type of separate project working hand and hand with TSP. Build Prototype in first three months, at the end if it passes the technical requirements, then it will be sent to a field test. PROJECT GOALS: - Will prepare a written technical assessment after the technical evaluation (3 months) - Will enhance the prototype after the technical evaluation and send it for field testing - Another assessment of the field test will be performed and documented. PURPOSE OF THE TSP STEERING COMMITTEE: Communication Help with decisions Providing business resources for the project Committee will be making decisions for their individual organizations. Approving evaluation criteria for field test. Participating in process of the evaluation. - Robert points out that this is a new process and it takes time to get adjusted. Feels that Steering Committee members should look at requirements horizontally across all of DHS. Wants to avoid looking at things in the old-fashioned “stove-pipe” manner. FYI- - Bill Fink is the sponsor for the project and Marge Reinhart has been appointed Steering Committee Chair. - Not an OIS project. It has been initiated for DHS as a whole.
