Free Executive Web Briefing Courtesy Of Netsmart

As autism support needs continue to skyrocket across the country, more organizations are offering services that are designed to specifically support people on the autism spectrum and their families. Whether an organization is solely dedicated to serving the autism community or provides access to these services as one component amongst many specialties, bringing technology to the point of care remains a challenge and a top imperative.

Join Netsmart Senior Director Andrew Mersman, MS, NCC, LPC-MHSP and Easterseals for thisĀ OPEN MINDS webinar on October 24, at 1 p.m. ET as they discuss the challenges facing autism providers today and how technology can help organizations improve the staff, family and individual’s experience.

Other benefits technology can bring to your autism service line include:

  • Improved quality of care
  • Reduced staff attrition
  • Eliminated duplicate entry
  • Electronic referrals
  • Integrate clinical and financial
  • More visibility to care plans for individuals and their families
