Truly human government
Truly human governments break down silos, build up capabilities and empower workforces to move from transactions to relationships with citizens.
Public service agencies face the challenge of adapting to and meeting the unique needs and evolving expectations of a demanding society. They must do so at speed and scale, but providing consistent and personalized experiences is harder than ever.
To be able to predict and respond to customer needs, public service organizations must become more fluid and adaptable, breaking down silos while incrementally building up the right capabilities.
Empowering the workforce with technology, making better use of data and collaborating with ecosystem partners will enable these organizations to move at the speed of their customers and become truly human governments.
The human+ worker is a top trend in this year’s Accenture Technology Vision 2019. For the public sector this means using technology to augment the workforce, improving employee experiences and delivering better outcomes for citizens and businesses.
Technology, tools and training will empower the workforce to perform existing roles in new ways and pick up where digital experiences leave off. Public service organizations can move from reactive to proactive, preventative and predictive service delivery, identifying—and servicing—those in need early.
To achieve all of this, government organizations must transform into more fluid, customer-focused, digitally enabled organizations.
Losing a child in the first year is an immeasurable tragedy for a family. Infant mortality is also an urgent public health issue.
The challenge has been especially dire in the State of Ohio, which has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the United States. In 2017, seven out of 1,000 babies died before the age of one year.
But this aggregate statistic belies deeper inequities along racial lines. Compared to white babies, black babies in Ohio were more than three times as likely to die before their first birthday.
Recognizing the need for bold action, State of Ohio leaders began exploring how they could harness Big Data to better understand the complexity of this growing issue and transform interventions for at-risk mothers and babies.
Truly human governments break down silos, build up the necessary capabilities and empower workforces to move from transactions to relationships with citizens, designing experiences that meet the needs of an evolving society.
To become a truly human government, public sector leaders must learn from one another, work with ecosystem partners and, most importantly, listen to the citizens themselves. See for yourself how leaders are rising to the challenge.
