Changing the Culture in Government
Three years ago, we set out to make government more efficient, effective and accountable to the people.
One of the more exciting ways we’re doing this is through a program with the Office of Enterprise Technology Services.
To engage the local tech community in the modernization of state government, we began a code challenge. We brought local talent together to develop modern tools and applications to provide enhanced government services to the public.
The challenge is based on a Hackathon, a problem-solving event that brings together creative individuals to explore new technologies or programming language.
One winning team converted visitor scheduling at OCCC, which was being done manually, to a web-based, self-service process.
In the past, visitor scheduling was done by phone and Post-its, resulting in visits not being scheduled and families not being able to see their loved ones.
The new concept created by a group of Honolulu Community College students is far more efficient and is being developed into an application that works better for the staff, inmates and their visitors.
Two of the 19 members of the Hawaii Advanced Technology Society Team are with us today. I would like to ask Gerome Catbagan and Jayson Hayworth to stand and be recognized.
