After a three-month period of pilot operations, CMA (in collaboration with the Arizona Department of Health Services) began a state-wide rollout of the new HANDS system, which replaces the award-winning AIM system.
More than 800 users were trained on the HANDS during the past three months. HANDS was also implemented in Guam, the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa, and the Navajo Nation during this time.
HANDS design is compatible with modern architecture design features that enable faster changes as program and operational rules evolve. In addition to all the standard features, HANDS has distinguished features to provide program service integrity and detect fraud.
CMA offers many solutions for public service programs. If you want to learn more about the HANDS system, or our history with Arizona WIC please review our success stories and industry WIC pages.
