The Agency for Persons with Disabilities is excited to announce that we have contracted with Mediware to develop a new central client data system for APD customers. The computer system will capture much needed information to help all of us improve services to individuals with developmental disabilities. The new system will be the hub for all APD customer related data. Information will be regularly shared at waiver support coordinator and provider regional meetings, in the Champion newsletter, on APDcares.org, and many other venues as the project moves forward. Providers, waiver support coordinators (WSCs), and families will be able to use the system once it is completed. The project will take several years to develop.

The agency will be reaching out to stakeholders asking for information and input at various stages of the project.Please help us work to make this system the best it can be with your input. We want to hear from you about your ideas and thoughts to make it user-friendly, plus contain the vital data all of us need to do our jobs better. In the future, training will be developed for providers, WSCs, and families so everyone will know how to use the system properly. If you have questions about the project, send them to iConnect@apdcares.org.

We look forward to working with you!
