Tennessee taps Albion for human services support

The Tennessee Department of Human Services has awarded a three-year, $34 million contract to Albion to install an automated support for a range of human services programs.

Albion of Atlanta will develop and implement a platform that will furnish automated support for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, food stamps, Medicaid, TennCare and other state programs.

Albion's solution is based on an implementation of its Vantage health and human services framework, now operating in Massachusetts, Minnesota and Wyoming.

The system will give Tennessee residents access to services via the Internet, as well as improve operational efficiencies by streamlining business processes for caseworkers.
