Our entire system is on paper. We're technology challenged and want to know how easy FAMCare is to use. I've used software before that seemed powerful, but was very complicated. Are the forms easy to find?
FAMCare was built with your caseworkers in mind. We have success managers on our team who used to work for social service agencies. AS a matter of fact – many of our project managers are licensed social workers or MSW’s. They understand casework and know how to navigate FAMCare to help our clients use the system faster. Many of our clients are not “technical” at all and have been able to work within FAMCare right from the onset.
We're a large provider - how can we be sure that we'll get the right amount of support for our team?
We offer custom project and training plans to support all of our clients – no matter their size. Our plans include web-based training and help, onsite training and certification training for those who would like to learn how to develop in their FAMCare system.
FAMCare has a document repository built in to help you manage agency-specific documentation and policies. IN addition – each client has a private space for you to upload multiple documents at once. File types can include – Word, PDF, audio, images and video.
FAMCare has over 50 pre-built reports at your disposal on day one. In addition – there are two query designer tools to help beginners and more advanced users pull data and create reports when you need them.
FAMCare has a dynamic calendar and scheduling system that works similar to your GMAIL or OUTLOOK calendar. Any appointment you set in FAMCare will automatically go out to your personal calendar. Appointments, triggers, alerts and notifications will show up on your dashboard to keep caseworkers focused on the day’s work.
I've seen systems that out of the box use different data points than we do at our agency. Can I personalize certain things in FAMCare that will make it more familiar to me and my team?
First and foremost – FAMCare is not just software. It’s a platform! With FAMCare you get a series of best practice information forms that can be configured, changed and edited by you on the type of information you need to collect. If something that you need changed is beyond the scope of the configuration tools – our team can make the change for you! The system is not locked down. WE can make it do exactly and specifically what you need it to do to make you successful.
We have specific assessments and surveys we give to our clients at certain periods during our program. Can we add them or create them in FAMCare ourselves or would this be considered a billable customization?
FAMCare has form building modules that help even the most non-technical person create your own assessments and data collection forms. If your forms are more complex – GVT can build them for you quickly. The cost to do so would be part of your budget.
We have different people in different roles at our agency. I've worked with software platforms where security setup was a difficult thing to maintain and manage. How difficult is it to set security within FAMCare?
One of the more powerful and multi-dimensional tools we have in FAMCare is our security module. With FAMCare – you can set security that is role-based, form based or group based. You have the power and flexibility to control what your users see when they log in. Security is easy to set up and maintain. We train you on how to do it.
We have clients in our system that have other family members that we work with, as well as, other contacts that we'd like to keep organized within the client's record. Is there an easy way to do that within FAMCare?
FAMCare is your people repository. You can add them as constituents, third party providers, extended family members, other contacts, caregivers, foster parents and more. For families – the system has a “smart tool” called the Family Build Wizard. You can enter as many family members as you want all from one screen. As you set relationships, the system applies inverse relationships against others in the table. This makes family building very quick.
