Eligibility Benefit Management System (EBMS)

CITI’s enterprise “Eligibility Benefit Management System” (EBMS) is a reusable and highly configurable application which allows for effective decision making across a wide spectrum of Human Services. EBMS is built on a foundation of core domain experience gained from deep collaboration with clients and end users.

EBMS supports most federal and state child welfare and benefit programs including Childcare, TANF, SNAP, Head Start, CPS and Foster Care.

CITI’s proprietary Eligibility rules engine can be quickly configured to manage all complexities of case management services.

Challenges faced by case management systems today

Localized Data - Current systems are often localized. Information is often stored in silos and not standardized. The data is not interoperable.

Reach and Portability - Social workers in the field still have to rely on paper based information which promotes inefficiencies and negatively impacts clients’ safety.

Difficult to use - Current systems replicate the complexity of the same paper based processes and do not consider passing on ease of access to the citizens that they serve.
