#1 Lack of Communication and Coordination Between Treatment Professionals
Administrative dropped balls, playing phone tag, and lack of collaboration around transitional and clinical support are issues of the past. Upload and confidentially share psychological evaluations, assessments and clinical notes with parents or other professionals on their team in mere seconds.
#2 Recidivism Following Successful Treatment
Nothing is more nerve-wracking for program professionals, than sending a teen back to a home environment that lacks the structure and education to sustain a smooth transition of what was gained into the real world. Family Bridge provides parents with an interactive on-line parent library, developed specifically to prepare them for their starring role in this transition.
#3 Dissatisfied Parents Who Feel Out of Sync With the Program
Program owners know what happens when parents feel disconnected and out of sync with the program... they pull their teen prematurely. With Family Bridge, parents are kept "in the loop" from day one. They know schedules, see pictures, read blogs, and get specifics on their son or daughter without having to wait for their weekly session with the therapist. Keeping parents informed, keeps the number of panicked or angry calls to a minimum, so you can devote yourself to the work of treating their child. It also saves a tremendous amount of lost revenue.
#4 Reaching New Audiences
No matter how good your clinical work is, if you aren't continually marketing yourself, you will struggle. Family Bridge is a brilliant way to reach thousands of potential referral sources, without marketing. When family, friends, and other professionals see your logo repeatedly, interact with your program professionals, and witness your professionalism and efficiency around one of "their own", who will be top-of-mind the next time they need answers for a troubled teen? That's right, you!
#5 Overburdening Therapists to Keep Parents Engaged in the Process
Therapists know and research shows that parents who are more engaged in the treatment process experience far better outcomes than those who are not, but taking the time to come up with ways to continually engage parents can be taxing on the therapist. Family Bridge is a social networking tool with a clinical twist. Not only is it used by parents and therapists for coordination, communication, and collaboration, but it draws parents into your program through pictures, letters, and "good news" tidbits that are coming to them automatically. Imagine parents learning, growing, being a fly-on-the-wall, and gaining confidence in their choice of program, all because of the automated processes available on Family Bridge.
