Modulus Barn: Supporting next generation child welfare services
Norway has a national initiative ‘DigiBarnevern’ which was set up to strengthen the quality of child welfare services. The project is a collaboration between the Norwegian government and the largest municipalities of Norway which, together, represent one third of the Norwegian population. We are working with them to deliver Modulus Barn: a state-of-the-art platform that combines user-friendly functionality with effective reporting and streamlined case management.
The platform is based on ‘Modulus’ – our modern and versatile platform designed for complex case management in ministries or public organisations. The Modulus Barn platform will provide full support for all tasks performed by Child Welfare Services, including assessments, investigations, implementing protective measures and preventative work.
Case workers will be able to spend less time on administrative tasks and more time delivering timely, equal and fair services to children and families across the country.
The Norwegian Child Welfare Services' Modulus Barn platform is currently being implemented and will be rolled out to eight municipalities in summer 2022 and is then set to scale across 348 more. Our hope is that it will vastly improve the case management process – benefiting staff and children alike. Case workers will be able to spend less time on administrative tasks and more time delivering timely, equal and fair services to children and families across the country. And because it is based on our modular design, it will be flexible enough to scale and adapt to future needs.
