The Sym­po­sium on the Future of Child Wel­fare, with its theme of Game Chang­ing Inno­va­tions for State Admin­is­tra­tors,” opened with three sets of remarks from Casey Foun­da­tion lead­ers that addressed how tech­nol­o­gy can help with the most impor­tant prob­lems faced by human ser­vice sys­tems. The speech­es served as a kick off to Case Com­mons, the Foun­da­tion’s inde­pen­dent tech­nol­o­gy start­up that is look­ing to bring web 2.0 func­tion­al­i­ty to the case man­age­ment and infor­ma­tion sys­tems used by the pub­lic ser­vices sec­tor. The remarks were deliv­ered by Michael L. Eskew, board chair of the Casey Foun­da­tion and for­mer chair­man and chief exec­u­tive offi­cer, UPS; Patrick T. McCarthy, pres­i­dent and CEO of Casey; and Dou­glas W. Nel­son, for­mer pres­i­dent and CEO of Casey.
