Human Services 2.0
Through innovative and customized consulting processes and hands-on training
workshops, we mesh consumer-centric insight with proven business and technology
practices to drive cross-program and cross-agency linkages among federal, state,
county and nonprofit organizations.
To support federal, state, and county leaders we research and collect
outstanding examples of innovative and emerging interoperability efforts
nationwide and make them readily available to the community.

Here at the California Health and Human Services Agency (CHHS), we are continuously working to strengthen existing programs and services and evaluate new approaches. As we work towards these goals, it is important that we make effective use of the data that we collect along the way.
With this goal in mind, we launched our Open Data Portal. Our data already are advancing our efforts to increase transparency and support data-driven decision-making. We expect that this trend will continue and our data will assist government employees, companies and nonprofit foundations, among others, to make more informed decisions and result in better outcomes for those who rely on our programs.
