What Sets Our Case Management Platform Apart?

Posted by George Ritacco on Aug 11, 2016 3:05:54 PM
 
FAMCare, an innovative and creative, human services-focused case management platform that is web-based, is different from others in the industry. Knowing the reasons that set it apart highlights the advantages it offers those individuals — the healthcare providers, caseworkers, foster care parents and countless others — who directly influence and care for the most vulnerable population in the country — children.

Forward Thinking Longevity

In 2001, Global Vision Technologies (GVT), the company behind FAMCare case management software, set out to provide a robust set of information management tools that are simple to use and easy to implement, while also being sophisticated enough to handle a range of tasks and affordable enough for agencies that are strapped for resources. FAMCare, the first web-based human services system of its kind, was launched. The platform has continued to introduce innovative features that help streamline the processes necessary to manage information for children and families, appropriately. Its primary goal is to support those individuals who are on the front lines of caring for children and families so they can make the best decisions.

A Unique Case Management System

GVT built FAMCare using its proprietary platform, known as Visions Server. This server includes four specialized processors that are able to rapidly disseminate information and implement solutions based on daily activities in a customizable and configurable way. This assists each agency in developing the type of platform that best meets its specialized and unique needs.

Security and Protection

GVT's FAMCare software provides the tools needed to collect valuable data that allows the people who are responsible for vulnerable children to make a difference in their lives. Full training and support is provided to each client to aid them in the smooth implementation of FAMCare. Utilizing top-notch security parameters and protocols for both the front end and the back end keep information secure and protected. The FAMCare platform delivers unbeatable consistency, stability and productivity with a 99.9 percent rate of uptime.

Core Values

The GVT core values are evident in both everything they do and everything FAMCare is. As technology continues to open new pathways to solutions, success and productivity, it is integrated into the platform. They are meticulous in delivering what their clients need and dedicated to providing only those solutions that excel. Proactive and self-motivated, the team behind FAMCare constantly looks for methods of improvement before they are needed and searches for ways to better meet the needs of their customers.

Global Vision Technologies has been leading the industry in providing solutions in the form of crisp, powerful and intuitive custom and off-the-shelf software for agencies in the human services, healthcare and social services sectors. Throughout it all, they never forget about the vision, humility and devotion that courses through the veins of those people who are at the forefront of change in the lives of society's most vulnerable children and their families.

Adoption in a Changing World

Posted by George Ritacco on Jun 14, 2016 12:00:00 PM

The winds of change blow steadily through the world of social services. Our colleagues in Child and Family Services recently shared with us the dramatic changes that are occurring in foster care and adoption. Attitudes toward adoption, secrecy, parental rights, and post adoption best practices are evolving rapidly, with the mind set of both the parents seeking to adopt and birth mothers who find themselves in need of surrogate parents for their child, changing dramatically.

WHEN CLOUDS FORM

In 2013 this blog reported on the meltdown in service at the Veteran’s Administration (VA). Similar signs of meltdown are beginning to gather in Child Protective Services. IN general – our team has been communicating what our clients have been telling us for years and why they moved to FAMCare.  We’ve talked about problems in child welfare and CPS in the states of Florida, Georgia, California and Texas.  Case Worker colleagues report crushing workloads, fear-based management, impossible expectations, and stress levels that are sending case workers out on medical leave at an alarming rate.

Walking in the Case Workers' Shoes

Posted by Steve Grover on Feb 18, 2016 4:59:36 PM

As many of you know, if you’ve been following my other posts, I have a passion for customers we serve because of my experience growing up as the son of house parents.  They can’t call them that any more, and no one actually lives in the same residence as the clients.  Times have really changed.

Now, at 67 years old, Christine Scarpati is retiring, but she feels defeated. “We face the same problems after 34 years: too many kids in foster care, not enough foster families, not enough prevention programs or services for parents who want to get their kids back.”
