Why are integrated information management systems important in human service organizations? Can you also give an example?
If one does not have a clear picture of the total situation, decisions will often subobtimize.
Example: A blind man, with 34 dependents, homeless, who is an alcoholic suffering from depression, who is a veteran, and has 3.5 million dollars in the bank; and has applied previously for financial assistance to buy a home.
Wouldnt it be nice to know all that when making a decision, rather than just a few pieces of it?
