NEW TO CMS? CMS is a web-based Case Management System, which facilitates the handling of cases from start to finish. This includes case intake, home visit and requests for payments on behalf of a client. Caseworkers can easily look up client history, or create a new client. CMS also has a robust reporting module, and can be used for various initiatives such as holiday programs and food pantry tracking.

CMS ANNUAL REPORT TRAINING (VIRTUAL)

NEW! CMS Enhancements
We are excited to release CMS 4.1 on January 4th, 2023. This release is an upgrade to CMS 4.0 and includes two major enhancements – Assistance Simplification and Auto Close. These enhancements are a direct result of feedback provided by Conferences.
Assistance Simplification focuses on improving the overall Caseworker’s experience by streamlining the Conference Visit process (from Pre-Visit to Close Case) by making it simple, intuitive, fast, and flexible. This enhancement also provides a cleaner and fresher “look and feel” to the user interface.
Note: if you have a Caseworker role, please watch all three of the Assistance Simplification training videos PRIOR to the CMS 4.1 release in order to be prepared for this enhancement.
Auto Close is a Case Manager’s tool to quickly close cases left opened by the Caseworker. This tool will assist in reducing the number of open cases, allowing for more accurate Conference monthly and annual reports.
Note: if you have a Case Manager role, please watch the Auto Close training video PRIOR to the CMS 4.1 release in order to be prepared for this enhancement.
