Michigan's foster care and adoption system is launching a new information-sharing platform that will help improve outcomes for children in the state's troubled child welfare system.
The department of human services initiated the online platform last week in a "soft launch" stage.
The new system consolidates databases for the state and agencies it works with... and aims to allow real-time sharing of case data.
The new platform will help shed light on areas of child welfare that can't currently be evaluated.
