Full Story


As America’s largest Health & Human Services Agency, California Health & Human Services is tasked with the administration and oversight of state and federal programs for health care, social services, public assistance, and rehabilitation. The organization is using its data to establish transparency, ensure compliance of external organizations and services, and more effectively aid and protect citizens.

MarkLogic is able to make sense of information by ingesting it into a data hub. Then it applies indexing, organization, ontology and taxonomy so now the data makes sense and is searchable.

CIO, Office of Statewide Health Planning & Development


California Health & Human Services currently has two agencies implementing MarkLogic. The California Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) that protects consumer healthcare rights in California, and ensures a stable healthcare delivery system that serves 26 million people. And the California Office of Statewide Planning and Development (OSHPD) that manages the construction and financing of hospitals, ensures safe facilities, and serves the healthcare workforce. Both agencies selected MarkLogic for its flexible data model, “Ask Anything” Universal Index, and enterprise reliability and security.



With data residing in MarkLogic, OSHPD and DMHC can provide accurate and comprehensive information to users.
