PolicyWorks promotes innovative uses of technology in the public and non-profit sectors to improve efficiency, reduce costs and strengthen customer service.   PolicyWorks also promotes technology in the form of electronic tools to help people with disabilities navigate the system of benefits and supports that impacts their choices about work and careers.

PolicyWorks’  team of information system subject matter experts–Ben Schooley, Ph.D.,  and Sue Feldman, RN, M.Ed., Ph.D.– have developed technology solutions that assist nonprofits, government agencies and for-profit organizations that help people with disabilities move from dependence on government benefits to a life of productivity based on employment.

These tools include: The Smart Suite: SmartWorks EN Portal and Smart Start, orientation tool for the public workforce community and the Hawaii Benefits Estimator.
