Salvation Army Harbor Light Center selects NextStep Solutions Software



INDIANAPOLIS, IN, Oct 31, 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - The Salvation Army Harbor Light Center, Indianapolis will be using the NextStep Behavioral Health EMR System to improve the quality of care for clients, data collection for outcomes and program post treatment follow up. The Harbor Light Center is dedicated to helping people get their whole lives back, and they have selected NextStep Solutions, from among over 15 behavioral health EMR candidates, to manage their behavioral health and substance abuse program needs.

"Our goal is to move the lives of our consumers forward, to develop our staff. NextStep Solutions has demonstrated that their system is forward thinking. That is a focal point of Harbor Light Center, and NextStep Solutions aligns with that goal," says Major Kendall Matthews, Executive Director, Salvation Army - Midwest.

In selecting NextStep Solutions, the Salvation Army noted that compliance was a huge factor in vetting other organizations' capabilities to partner with them. NextStep Solutions system allows Salvation Army to demonstrate a high standard of programming and services; the compliance targets are built into the system and it will hold the Salvation Army team accountable for hitting those targets, just by the way it's designed.

"The Salvation Army had two huge challenges in accuracy and accountability because we're migrating from a paper model. Inherent in a paper model system is the potential for human error. With NextStep Solutions, we're switching to a system that can have required targets, ask the right questions, and keep the Salvation Army compliant. With accountability, a comprehensive auditing process built right in to the software, and transparency on services being rendered, we can demonstrate that our consumers are improving. This outcome based model really helps make a difference in our consumers' lives - and the system can demonstrate that transformation," says E. Alicia Hoskins, MSM, Director of Quality Assurance.

"Because NextStep Solutions is so user-friendly, switching from paper to an EMR will not be a shock to the culture within the Salvation Army. Since our team is comprised of a diverse group of people - some who are and some who are not tech savvy - the ease of use was a key consideration. The software is compliant, forward thinking and includes critical reminder steps that keep the outcomes provable."

"What attracted me to NextStep, from the first call, it was clear that the staff is knowledgeable, professional, transparent, and understands the field and the needs of the potential and current customers. We asked very specific questions, required references, and dove into their background and relationships with other customers. They were very open and receptive to that," Ms. Hoskins adds.

"We can demonstrate the highest level of service to our customers. There was a lot of negotiation to allow us to be where we are today. Both sides worked diligently to get this done. We hope we can be a model for other Salvation Army units across the United States," Maj. Matthews stated.

Intel supplies processors for computer system manufacturers such as Apple, Lenovo, HP, and Dell. Intel also manufactu...
Serverless applications increase developer productivity and time to market, by freeing engineers from spending time on infrastructure provisioning, configuration and management. Serverless also simplifies Operations and reduces cost - as the Kubernetes container infrastructure required to run these applications is automatically spun up and scaled precisely with the workload, to optimally handle all runtime requests. Recent advances in open source technology now allow organizations to run Serv...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform....

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. This...

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
