New Mobile Accessibility Enables APS Investigators to Respond Immediately to the Needs of Vulnerable Adults
RESTON, VA – October 17, 2012 – Harmony Information Systems Inc., the leader in integrated health and human services management, announced today that Harmony for Adult Protective Services™ (APS) is now compatible with the iPad Tablet, iPhone, and Safari web browser. This new compatibility enables highly mobile Adult Protective Services investigators to respond immediately to the needs of vulnerable adults and to manage cases in real-time from the field.
“The nature of Adult Protective Services requires APS investigators to spend much of their time in the field. Forcing them to rely on cumbersome manual processes to manage their investigations or to return to the office to work their cases electronically interferes with their mission of protecting the vulnerable adults in their community,” said Keith Ewell, Ph.D, vice president of product management for Harmony. “With 24×7 mobile access to Harmony for APS via the iPad or iPhone, APS investigators can manage their cases in real-time from the field, allowing them to efficiently respond to the needs of victims of abuse, neglect and exploitation no matter their location.”
Harmony for APS is a comprehensive on-demand case management system for state and county adult protective services organizations that meets their full range of requirements. With Harmony for APS, organizations can reduce the risk of a catastrophe involving case participants through tools and reports that detect problems and prompt corrective action.
