The group supports today’s release of version 2.0 of the Redmond, Wash.-based Microsoft Connected Health and Human Services Framework, which presents a flexible, individual and family-centered approach for addressing the challenges that face HHS agencies, departments and programs as they respond to complex social needs and problems and deliver services to individuals and families in need, says the company.

Launch partners include ACS (Atlanta); Avanade (Seattle); CGI (Fairfax, Va.); EDS (Plano, Texas); ESRI, (Redlands, Calif.); Harmony Information Systems (Reston, Va.); IDV Solutions (Lansing, Mich.); MidTech Partners (Centennial, Colo.); Netsmart Technologies (Great River, N.Y.); Nets To Ladders (Austin, Texas); NWN Corp.
