Having access to the right information at the right time is at the heart of a social worker's ability to do his or her job in a timely and efficient manner. Being able to process and organize information received helps ensure that productivity increases, even as the industry as a whole is seeing more pressure.
Social work is not immune to the ethical issues introduced by the ubiquitous presence of new technology. The use of laptops, tablets, and cellphones outside the safety and security of the office environment, connecting to public Wi-Fi, “liking” posts on Facebook, tracking hashtags on Twitter, sending messages via Snapchat, and pinning pictures on Pinterest all engage a vastly more efficient, but less secure communication environment. Given the nature of the duties social workers are engaged in, their involvement with vulnerable populations, and the trust they seek to establish with their clients, the need for expert guidance in how to navigate this terrain is extremely important.
Just a short announcement that the Official FAMCare User Forum was launched today. The forum has been something we've wanted to do for a while to help create a place for users to go to network with other FAMCare users and to find answers to their issues.
I recently read an article on the Social Work Degree Guide website. It enlightened me to the fact that while Social Workers are tirelessly working to find solutions for their clients in need, they rarely take the time to take care of their own needs. Unfortunately, more often than not it leads to burnout. Please read the article below for more information on some of the symptoms, causes and solutions to Social Worker Burnout.
A Case Management ENGINE...
4 Powerful Workflow Processors in ONE!
FAMCare - from the front... appears to be similar to some of the other case management software tools on the market - but there is something you need to know... FAMCare is built on a powerful workflow and development platform. Visions Server is GVT's proprietary platform and "engine" that is configured for every customer - making their case management experience unique and very special.
For most organizations, case management software is about a lot more than just making your day slightly easier through the adoption of new technology. It's about leveraging the power of the digital world both to your advantage and to the advantage of the people you serve. It's about enabling superior communication that gives way to better, stronger collaboration. It's about driving business outcomes and building your enterprise around the performance-enhancing engine that you need when you need it the most.
As social service agencies grow and new case management software is introduced into the market, finding the right software to fit your agency’s size and mission can be a daunting task.
There's a common (and unfortunate) misconception out there that certain industries are perfectly fine relying less on technology than others. Social workers, healthcare workers and people in similar professions don't necessarily have a pressing urge for information management and case management software because most of their day is spent in-person.
Our company specializes in helping human services and healthcare agencies become more efficient with their resources and improve the outcomes for those they serve. Whether it’s children that need a "forever family", the elderly or people struggling with addiction recovery, our goal is to help those that serve them have an easier way to record and report on the data they collect.
