Input Sought on Statewide Case Management System

There are dozens of different case management systems being used in Ohio. The Ohio Supreme Court is exploring ways it can support Ohio courts in the adoption, and operation of a standardized case management system.

A survey has been sent out to all Ohio courts to collect information about existing systems and operations and any issues. The survey information will be used to assess the interest in the different solution and service alternatives being considered by the Supreme Court, including:

  • Shared Case Management: Participating courts would use a system selected, implemented, and operated by the Supreme Court.
  • Common Case Management: Participating courts would implement a local, court-specific system with one vendor selected by the Supreme Court.
  • Standards-Based Case Management: Participating courts could choose from a list of vendors selected by the Supreme Court.

In all three options, the Supreme Court would work with local courts to improve data exchange between courts, as well as maintain standards.

“Case management systems are critical to efficient and effective court operations. I encourage court officials to take a few moments to complete the survey so that we can be responsive to their needs,” Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor said.

Judges, court administrators, clerks of court, and directors of information technology are being asked to complete the survey by the end of the business day on Friday, October 24, 2014. Questions or issues may be sent to Court Services Director Stephanie Hess at
