The diagnosis was easy: The South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services was suffering from budget constraints, reams of paperwork, the administration of requirements regarding the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and an expanding number of employees who were quickly running out of office space.
