Shared Services/Security
CWDS replaced outmoded, separate systems in order to allow more efficient and comprehensive service delivery. While some data is shared among staff of more than one agency, security of users' information is protected. Access to shared data is based on the type of participant (for example, children receiving independent living services) and the security level granted for a users role (i.e. agency staff, employer, provider). High standards of privacy are maintained, and confidential data such as Social Security Numbers are encrypted and used only where necessary to meet federal requirements.
