Future SACWIS Builds
*Please note that the following schedule is tentative and may change as our user community's needs evolve or we
  receive new state or federal mandates/directives. This list will be updated as changes occur.  
Future Build Number/ Tentative Date  Initiative NameInitiative Description
May 6, 2021
Inquiry RedesignThe inquiry function will be improved to make it simpler to 
find existing inquiries that are pending/in-progress for an 
agency or specific user.  Searching for applicants and children
of interest will be simplified by the addition of a 'related 
persons' link and new referral sources will be added.  
 Medicaid TPL 
SACWIS has been updated to send Medicaid notification when
the court has ordered a parent to supply medical insurance 
for their child who is in custody and when that medical 
support order has been terminated.  The updates will allow 
SACWIS to inform Medicaid when to pursue or not to pursue
a Parent's Private Insurance.
Based Reports
The Performance Based Reports have been created to run
existing SACWIS Admin reports with only the assigned
worker designation so that agencies can evaluate a
worker's performance across a span of time, regardless
of their assigned unit and supervisor.
Spring 2021
RTIS - Phase 1A sub-system of Ohio SACWIS called the Residential 
Treatment Information System (RTIS) has been created for 
congregate care facility employees.  The system will be 
deployed over a series of builds, with the goal to provide
better continuity of care for youth placed in residential
treatment facilities.  
Services Phase 3
Enhancements to SACWIS are being made to assist in the 
implementation of the Family First Prevention Services Act.
 Kinship Support
Program -
Phase 2
Additional functionality has been developed to support the
Kinship Support Program (KSP) in accordance with SB 310
which mandates the state to directly pay eligible kinship
providers for a specified time.
