October 2017: Maximizing Modern Tools and Platforms. This issue is our yearly “technology-focused” issue and is shared at the ISM Annual Conference. Articles will showcase emerging technology and business practices that help advance the next generation of health and human services by giving modern tools to the workforce and customers. We also wish to showcase what is required of agencies to modernize their business model for the future and leverage advance analytics to inform decision-making. Desired examples include updates on what states are achieving with the federal, time-limited 90–10 funding; re-use opportunities in shared platforms and open data sources; and what agencies and organizations are doing to keep up with new technologies via Apps, social media, digital and mobile platforms.
December 2017: Partnering for Impact. This issue will focus on cross-sector collaboration, both as it relates to public-private partnerships and coordination across related public sectors, including education, housing, labor and criminal justice. Contributions should include examples of collaborations and cross-sector work across the nonprofit and public sectors (at all levels of government) that are contributing to system change and leading to better outcomes for communities. We are looking for examples of partnerships that are moving beyond the traditional contractor-vendor relationship to those that are truly “co-creating,” driving better outcomes, and achieving collective impact. We would like articles collaboratively authored from the nonprofit, public, and business sectors or that provide a perspective that is outside traditional human services. Examples of effective shared governance structures are also encouraged.
