Headless Content Management System

ESS implemented the Multi-tenancy Feature for the Headless Content Management System (H-CMS).  This feature enables ADOs to integrate with H-CMS as part of their own work effort (to create their own Programs, metadata, etc.) if they have a need for a content management system. 

H-CMS was first released in May 2019 and is now available for integration – for any questions regarding H-CMS integration or for a demo please reach out to ServiceCenterSOS@cms.hhs.gov.
