Capabilities

Social Interest Solutions brings expertise in systems design and development to improve access to services for individuals and families and to promote efficiency for program administrators.

Eligibility Determination

Applying for health and social services programs can be intimidating and cumbersome for individuals and families. It often means waiting in long lines, completing multiple paper forms, traveling to different locations, and navigating an incredibly complex maze of referrals and programs. Social Interest Solutions uses technology to help streamline the application process for families and program administrators by providing a single electronic application that collects and stores information, screens and delivers data electronically, and helps families enroll in a range of public and private programs.


TOOLS

One-e-App

One stop. One time. One application. Innovative One-e-App technology connects low-income families to programs and services ranging from Medicaid, CHIP, and subsidies for Qualified Health Plans purchased through health insurance marketplaces, to SNAP (Food Stamps), income tax credits, energy subsidies and more. One-e-App has facilitated the enrollment of more than 23 million people nationally into Medicaid and other federal, state, and local programs.

Enrollment Management

Our solutions provide customers with the capability to enroll and manage their program populations. Sophisticated rules engines, built-in user interface validations, and back-end systems verifications promote high-quality, error-checked electronic applications. Features such as workload management, document administration, generation of member identification cards and notification letters, and integrated consumer survey and reporting tools provide program administrators with a comprehensive enrollment management solution.


SOLUTIONS

County Indigent Programs

For more than 10 years, Social Interest Solutions has partnered with county agencies to help manage enrollment in their local adult medically indigent programs. We have helped these agencies better serve their clients by providing a one-stop process for eligibility determination and enrollment, first screening applicants for eligibility for federal and state programs before enrolling them in the county-funded program. Our solutions allow agencies to track and support enrollment activities across programs and in the community, and provide outreach management and retention tools.

Decision  Support

Social Interest Solutions provides advanced, “quick results” decision support tools that help deliver high-quality, accurate eligibility determination and provide valuable information and predictive analysis tools that support enrollment decision-making. These solutions can be used by Health Insurance Marketplace test teams, state collaboratives, navigators, call center customer service representatives, and policy researchers.

They protect scarce local funds by screening clients first for federal and state programs. Our solutions also improve efficiency by eliminating the need for manual data re-entry, can interface to existing government systems without requiring changes to those systems, and improve the quality of applications (and minimize the need for follow-up) through a consumer-friendly, interview-style format and built-in error checking features.

Providers

Social Interest Solutions provides tools that can help hospitals and clinics protect scarce resources by identifying payers for their patients. This is especially relevant in addressing costs related to frequent repeat users of emergency and acute clinic services. Our solutions leverage and integrate with existing provider systems, including patient management and billing systems, thereby minimizing the need to capture and enter the same data from patients multiple times. Finally, we can help providers streamline and reduce the administrative barriers to providing accurate eligibility screening by reducing repetitive data entry and easing the collection of supporting documentation.


IN THE FIELD

Supporting Hospital Systems

For 15 years, Social Interest Solutions has supported hospital systems by helping them identify payers for their patients, preserving scarce grants and charity care funds for those patients who truly are not eligible for other coverage. Our solutions also help hospitals establish a medical home for patients, by incorporating the selection of a primary care provider into the screening process. Importantly, our solutions have helped increase the number of low-income patients with access to free or affordable health care coverage and preventive care services.

Community-Based Organizations

Social Interest Solutions can help community-based organizations better serve their clients by assisting them with enrollment in a broad range of health coverage and social services programs, including cash assistance, food support, low-income energy and auto programs, and more. Our solutions provide application management tools for efficient tracking of client cases and retention tools that help CBO’s assist their clients in retaining continuous coverage. We leverage and integrate with existing client management and tracking systems, minimizing the need to capture and enter the same data from the client multiple times.
