“It’s about making technology work in an easy to use format that’s highly accessible and captures all of the operational moving parts to agencies serving the developmentally disabled” - Brian White
Rochester, NY (PRWEB) August 08, 2012
MediSked, LLC has served disability provider agencies for over ten years by providing web based solutions to manage the operations, records, billing, and HR functionalities within provider agencies. They will share their knowledge on the benefits and challenges of transitioning to technology in a presentation at the NAQ Conference entitled “Transitioning to Paperless: How Technology Assists in Improving Care and Maintaining Compliance While Reducing Costs.”
NAQ is the National Association of Qualified Developmental Disability Professionals. NAQ was formed in 1996 to establish a strong resource for research, networking and addressing issues that concern Qualified Developmental Disability Professionals (QDDP) today. A chief concern amongst professionals is managing and navigating through the changing regulatory environment that surrounds them as most agencies are funded through Medicaid waivers. Managing Medicaid dollars efficiently and effectively to provide the highest quality of care to the individuals they serve has become more difficult in recent years as state budgets have seen significant cuts and regulations have grown. A survey conducted by MediSked, LLC to over 1,200 respondents shows that less than 13% of provider agencies use a comprehensive software solution to manage their electronic records and operational data. Brian White, Business Development Manager at MediSked, has been asked by NAQ to discuss the benefits and challenges that face provider agencies in transitioning from paper based systems to a complete web based platform.
“This is a turning point in the home and community based service industry. Disability Provider Agencies have more pressure than ever to be ultra- efficient with Medicaid dollars. At the same time, the demand for real time data on the individuals they serve and the staff serving them will only increase,” stated Brian White. “It’s about making technology work in an easy to use format that’s highly accessible and captures all of the operational moving parts to agencies serving the developmentally disabled.”
