A web-based system designed by Deloitte for the state of Virginia has won the Richmond Technology Council’s Innovation in Utilization Award, recognizing efforts to build a portal that helps state residents apply for social assistance.
RichTech gives the award to organizations that use technology to improve their processes and services, Deloitte said Monday.
The CommonHelp system aims to help 800,000 citizens apply for state Medicaid, child care, home energy and supplemental nutrition assistance programs.
Deloitte says users can also use the web portal for renewing applications, checking benefits and reporting changes to the Virginia Department of Social Services.
