Eccovia Launches ClientInsight, an AI-Powered Data Warehouse to Improve Social Service Delivery

Eccovia | July 26, 2022

Eccovia, a leading provider of cloud-based SaaS solutions for the health and human services sector, announces the release of an unprecedented data warehouse and community-analytics platform, ClientInsight. ClientInsight is hosted in Microsoft Azure and is a premier solution for data quality, performance, and actionable insights. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, our nation’s most vulnerable populations have faced adverse outcomes to their social determinants of health. In addition to a new pathogen in the public, domestic violence increased, as did homelessness. Data availability became a national topic of conversation as COVID-19 case counts rose, and there was never a greater need for increased access to timely data in the realm of social services. We now know the result of data that is incomplete, siloed, or “stale.” Data has to be available when needed, and the inequities in data availability were highlighted by the pandemic, as were the needs to address systemic issues in care coordination. With the launch of ClientInsight, social-services dashboards and data from across communities can integrate into a single source of truth, leading to a more holistic approach to addressing the needs of vulnerable populations, true coordinated entry, and effective care coordination. ”ClientInsight is really the first-ever platform that will be able to help tie organizational data, collected every single day, to outcomes and progress that providers hope and expect to see. This is a true gamechanger that will allow community providers to set and meet more ambitious goals in their respective fights to end society’s most pressing issues.” CEO, Carl Champagne Data-privacy laws require secure access points to client data, yet networks that serve multiple populations must be able to share this data between organizations for care coordination. ClientInsight closes the gap between data privacy and care coordination, allowing providers to serve their clients' needs with a more knowledgeable, integrated level of care. About Eccovia Eccovia provides industry-leading software platforms for case management and community care coordination for state agencies, community-based providers, and other human-service entities. The platforms help caseworkers and care providers collaborate across physical, behavioral, economic, and social determining factors that impact individual and community health outcomes.

Leveraging the power of Geeq Data with Rowbot’s sophisticated data management will accelerate transformation.” Geeq CEO Ric Asselstine Rowbot CEO Matthew Linton said: “Geeq’s pioneering protocol provides trust minimization and decentralization. This additional layer of assurance will be at the core of how assets and information are handled in future, whether in motion or at rest. We believe Geeq’s private and public blockchain solution is unmatched in this regard. Geeq overcomes the scalability barriers of time, cost and complexity while achieving public/private chain symbiosis. We are thrilled to work closely with the Geeq team, starting with their attestation capability.” About the Geeq Project Geeq is a multi-blockchain platform secured by an entirely new, patent-pending blockchain consensus mechanism, which radically reduces the cost of securely transacting value at scale. It is safe enough for highly valuable data, fast and cheap enough for IoT, and flexible enough for any use. Geeq was founded by a team of expert economists and technologists who see unrealized opportunity in decentralized technology, as existing blockchains are caught in a trade-off between scalability and security. Geeq resolves the dilemma, enabling an entirely new category of solutions that unlock blockchain’s real potential for the real world. For all inquiries please contact press@geeq.io.
