In Brazil, information systems have been used to support government activities, such as public social and health care. For instance, SIGS is a web information system for management of social programs. Another example of information system is e-SUS for health care data management. Considering that crossing data from social and health care may be useful in decision-making for both areas, the SIGS-S project was proposed. It consists of a web application and a mobile application for social and health care data management. SIGS-S Web is a web application composed by two subsystems, SIGS-S Web Social, resulting of the reengineering of SIGS, and SIGS-S Web Saúde, inspired by data forms from e-SUS. SIGS-S Mobile Saúde is a mobile application to support health data collection. Processes ProFap and ProFap-R were used during their development. As a result, both web and mobile applications, as well as web services to support cross-application data exchange, were developed. Furthermore, it was prepared the documentation for both applications to help future software maintenance. Both applications were developed and validated with participation of stakeholders (health users and government managers).
