Microsoft has officially ended the support of Internet Explorer Version 10 as of February 11, 2020. Though it will continue supporting Internet Explorer Version 11 for a while, Microsoft is encouraging its users to transition to Edge as soon as possible. While the actual FAMCare and ClinicalPURSUIT products continue to run well in Internet Explorer, some third party add-ons are starting to drop support, and this includes our Help Desk link. If you use Internet Explorer for FAMCare, you will not be able to connect directly to the help desk unless you logout and login with a different browser.

Our American youth culture has forgotten our seniors. It isn’t accurate to accuse us of neglecting or abusing our seniors. No, caught up in the everyday business of our hyper-success culture, we simply don’t think about our senior population unless we have to. As long as we feel we’ve made reasonable accommodations for our seniors (Social Security and Medicare) we tend to pay closer attention to our careers and our children.
Homeschooling – parent-led, home-based education - is an age-old traditional educational practice that a decade ago appeared to be cutting-edge and “alternative” but is now bordering on “mainstream” in the United States. It may be the fastest-growing form of education in the country.
As 2019 is now behind us and we look forward to 2020 - we here at Global Vision Technologies would like to express our thanks to all of the caseworkers, foster care parents, healthcare providers and so many others who have taken responsibility for our country’s most vulnerable resource - children and families.
