Field assessment tools
For caseworkers to do their jobs more effectively we need to remove the desk-bound nature of the existing system. The field assessment tools will be specifically for use when in the field.
Caseworkers will have the ability to capture information from various inputs including voice, images, text, video and engagement tools. This information will subsequently be available in the case management system, negating the need for laborious data entry when returning to the office. Caseworkers will have the ability to complete assessments and provide an evidence-based decision for the child or family.
