Successful child and family service organizations understand that adopting the right technology is essential to achieving positive outcomes for the families they serve. From storing and retrieving client data to executing service plans, providers need access to tools that help simplify and streamline workflows. These powerful capabilities allow providers to focus on delivering the best care and service possible.
Our longtime partners, The Bair Foundation, incorporated the Netsmart child and family platform seven years ago to meet their goal of whole-person care. Traci Krider and Falon Westlake, program directors at The Bair Foundation gave us some insight into the goals the organization achieved by going digital with an electronic health record (EHR).
Having the right tools at hand, whether you’re in the office or on the go, can make a world of difference when it comes to providing top-notch care. Reducing unnecessary factors in daily operations while providing easy-to-use resources enables providers to make the best decisions to support the well-being of children and families they serve.
