For over 16 years Foothold has served the I/DD community as an Electronic Record, EHR vendor and human services software provider with its web-based software AWARDS.

Foothold Technology currently supports over 1,000 customers nationwide and has been supporting agencies providing intellectual and developmental disabilities services and supports for more than a decade. In addition to documenting services provided, AWARDS is used by agencies as a powerful reporting tool, an online and secure way to track health assessments, and can be an easy way to submit electronic billing claims directly to Medicaid. AWARDS supports agencies providing a wide range of services including intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental health, alcohol and substance use, homelessness and housing, employment and training, seniors, veterans, and other therapeutic services to individuals and families, children and adults.

As a result of this sustained focus, AWARDS has attained an incomparable level of sophistication and usability.”
