Submission 3: Survivor-Centric Case Management System
Collaborative Grassroots, Survivor-Centric Case Management System
Problems: 1. Case management is organization-centric, without much participation of the survivor. 2. Case management software is centralized, but case management is decentralized. 3. Gathering custom information useful to case managers is impossible. 4. Sharing information among organizations is impossible. 5. Survivors cannot see the status with whom their information is being shared.
Proposal: Build an open-source portal for case managers to help them manage some of the following use-cases: Pre-declariation Case Management; Making intelligent connections and minimizing duplication of efforts among case managers from other organizations; Integration with CAN; Streamlining grant applications; Intelligent automatic grant matching with survivors; Survivor-sentric permissions to view and/or share information with agencies; External reporting; Maximum appropriate, survivor-centric transparency; LTRG Vulnerability scoring.
Not all use cases will be facilitated on the first round, but would be prioritized based upon feedback from the community.
Although any case management software may be used to power the open source portal, VisionLink would donate the basic functionality of their secure software and database, Community OS. Use of the portal would be free to all Boulder, CO recovery organizations.

Case management is where you will find all of the under-served populations after a disaster. Case management lasts for five years after an event (sometimes more--Katrina case management is still happening). The status quo is not friendly to surivors
