Customer Relationship Management/Individual Data System Training – Online

Many of DODD’s online applications are being updated so they are easier to use, and are better integrated with other statewide systems such as Ohio Benefits, the Ohio Department of Medicaid’s new eligibility system. This includes the Individual Data System (IDS) application. As applications are updated, they will be moved to a dynamic new platform called Customer Relationship Management (CRM).

Training on the new IDS /CRM now is available to help you prepare for this transition. Courses that currently are available include Login and search, Creating a new record, Edit information and Individual Transfer Record (ITR). If you use IDS, you are encouraged to complete this training. As additional courses are added for IDS and other systems, they will be posted on the training page of DODD’s website.

If you have questions about the IDS training, send an email to
