Health and human service agencies work with a simplified shared application and intake process based upon mutual business rules that allow multi-benefit program screening, real-time eligibility determinations, and seamless enrollment.

- Moving Through the Human Services Value Curve Toolkit is designed to provide a roadmap for improving human service outcomes, value, and legitimacy through the lens of four different business models—regulative, collaborative, integrative, and generative—of the Human Services Value Curve, a framework developed by Harvard’s Technology and Entrepreneurship Center for a Networked World. The field needs frameworks that hold the most potential for building capacity at the individual, community, agency, and partnership levels. These skill-building and capacity-oriented frameworks include those for executive functioning, resilience, and leadership development. The time is ripe to “cross walk” them and explore the ways in which they might, together, comprise a more powerful, holistic approach to individual, organizational, and community development, and progress across populations, settings, and challenges.
