Christmas was my favorite time of the year,” a social worker, who prefers to remain anonymous, began her Christmas story. “I guess that’s why, when I began my career in social work, it startled me to realize that for most of the children in my care Christmas was a very difficult time.”

Posted by George Ritacco on Sep 9, 2016 12:58:31 PM

Do You Allow Your Children to Fail?

These days our children’s lives read like a Hollywood movie. People are trying to script their children’s lives.  In some cases - they are not allowed to fail. It starts young, if they are sports minded, they have to grow up to be the next Tiger Woods. If they are smart, they are pushed to be a rocket scientist or similar.

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.
