Converting data from a legacy system to an upgraded solution is often a time-intensive and arduous process.
However, this may change for Tribes searching for a better TANF or enrollment case management solution. Working with the Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians, Handel developers have standardized a data conversion tool that converts data from other leading solutions for TANF and enrollment.
This conversion tool identifies data points from legacy systems and imports them for a faster, more accurate data conversion. However, it not only converts data from only specific legacy solutions; it has the potential to convert cross-platform (meaning it can work with many different systems to convert data) as well.
After beginning a partnership in July 2013, implementation of the Soboba solution is currently in progress and the date for the Band to begin using the system to support its data collection for TANF case tracking and reporting and enrollment management begins the first quarter (Q1) of 2014.
The integration of information of these departments will help them better leverage that information and generate meaningful reports and statistics to further support the Tribe in providing client services more efficiently.
This RiteTrack system integrates multiple departments, including enrollment, TANF, family services (with child protective services) and the accounting department for grant tracking purposes. The solution has this capability because it is built on core, essential, shared data points. The database serves as the central hub of information with each department accessing consistent, reliable data on members.
As a sovereign nation, the Soboba Band’s mission is to assist American Indian families and future generations to reach their fullest potential in securing economic stability while encouraging wellness in the family.
Soboba’s Tribal TANF program strives to provide welfare-related services to eligible Native American families who meet all STTP requirements in an equitable and fair method according to customs and traditions.
Soboba’s Family Services Department seeks to ensure services for needy and vulnerable children and adults that aid and protect in ways that strengthen and preserve Native American families, that encourage personal responsibility, and that promote self-sufficiency.
Handel specializes in creating the best possible software solutions for American Indian service agencies. RiteTrack is software for tribal, state and county government. RiteTrack serves tribal nations throughout the country in nearly every tribal department. With the experience and accountability that Handel offers, RiteTrack is the trusted information solution that tribal social services can rely on.
