    In today’s changing landscape, electronic record-keeping is critical to any agency’s survival. Electronic documentation can provide your agency with the ability to report on individual outcomes, report on your successes, and develop your staff. It can save your agency hundreds of hours of paperwork while streamlining operations across the board.

    Ultimately, documenting services and supports electronically provides efficiency, accountability, can enhance the value of your agency’s programs to funders all while increasing the support for the individuals you serve. But how do you choose a partner who understands the challenges you face and can help you manage change? How do you know if your electronic record is flexible enough to meet the demands of changing mandates today and in the future?

You’ll also hear from members of the Foothold Technology client services team sharing tips on how to prepare for a good implementation and how change management can help your agency thrive.
