Electronic Record software for human service providers offered to ANCOR Members

ANCOR is pleased to welcome Foothold Technology as its newest Gold Partner.

“We’re excited that Foothold has joined ANCOR as a Gold Partner,” said ANCOR CEO Barbara Merrill. “For over 16 years Foothold has served the I/DD community as an Electronic Record, EHR vendor and human services software provider with its web-based software AWARDS. We know documenting services and supports provided is critical to ANCOR members, and Foothold has used its decades of experience working in the human services sector to develop a software with providers’ needs in mind.”

Foothold Technology currently supports over 900 customers nationwide and has been supporting agencies providing intellectual and developmental disabilities services and supports for more than a decade. In addition to documenting services provided, AWARDS is used by agencies as a powerful reporting tool, an online and secure way to track health assessments, and can be an easy way to submit electronic billing claims directly to Medicaid. AWARDS supports agencies providing a wide range of services including intellectual and developmental disabilities, mental health, alcohol and substance use, homelessness and housing, employment and training, seniors, veterans, and other therapeutic services to individuals and families, children and adults.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to work with ANCOR members to identify and implement the best software for the provider’s needs,” said Nick Scharlatt, co-founder of Foothold. “We work with hundreds of provider agencies across the nation, in Guam, and Puerto Rico. Our service model ensures each and every organization benefits from the wealth of knowledge in our entire community. As a result of this sustained focus, AWARDS has attained an incomparable level of sophistication and usability.”
