Focus Behavioral Health Is Goin' Green!

spacer spacer In the course of serving their many clients and employees, agencies use thousands of reams of paper each year. According to Conserve A Tree.org, one ton of uncoated virgin (non-recycled) printing and office paper uses 24 trees. One ream (500 sheets) uses 6% of a tree (and those add up quickly!).

spacer To preserve our beautiful trees and forests and -- by preserving them -- the oxygen we all breathe, Focus Behavioral Health uses only Apple iPads for all our forms and documents. An iPad is an electronic, portable tablet that will be uploaded with the content of the same stack of official paper documents that each administration and direct care staff would use on an everyday basis.

Add to this, the efficiency and communication rates throughout the company have increased while the billing errors are decreasing. We are even using our iPads in innovative ways to assist the nonverbal individuals we support by using developed communication apps.”

-- Nicholas Mudgett, IT Administrator, Focus Behavioral Health


Using the iPad also allows our staff to take electronic trainings, search the web, take notes, and even receive electronic signatures.
