An alliance of partners is unveiling a comprehensive, multivendor connected health and human services (HHS) technology architecture that is connecting disparate state and jurisdictional human services systems to give providers one comprehensive view into citizen/customer needs.

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. (Waltham, Mass.); Plexis Healthcare Systems (Ashland, Ore.); Saber Government Solutions (an EDS company, Portland, Ore.); Unisys (Blue Bell, Pa.); and VisionWare Ltd. (Glasgow, Scotland).
