In the 2016 Digital States Survey, Indiana received a Best Practice award for its efforts in Finance and Administration. It’s an area, CIO Dewand Neely explained at the annual NASCIO conference in Orlando, Fla., where the state is reaping the benefits of its foundational efforts in interagency consolidation, specifically in fraud prevention and procurement.

Similarly, the state continues to pursue analytics projects that build on the work of its Management and Performance Hub in taking on infant mortality and recidivism. Here, Neely articulates progress on the state’s use of analytics to take on the opioid crisis.
