Press Release: Southern First Nations Network of Care Partners with RedMane Technology Canada For Innovative Program to Help Mothers and Children Stay Together
VANCOUVER, BC – The Southern First Nations Network of Care (Southern Network) in Manitoba, which mandates ten agencies (nine of which are First Nations agencies) to protect children, provide culturally appropriate services and preserve families in their communities, is launching the “Restoring the Sacred Bond” initiative.
Restoring the Sacred Bond is an early intervention program aimed at reducing the number of newborn child welfare apprehensions and days that young children are spending in the care of child welfare.
“We are partnering with RedMane Technology Canada to bring our caseworkers state-of-the-art capabilities so we can better serve mothers and children. This is a groundbreaking program that will track and at the same time offer prenatal and postnatal support to at risk mothers and children,” says Tara Petti, CEO of the Southern Network.
Vancouver-based RedMane Technology Canada is helping the Southern Network implement mCase, RedMane’s modern case management and mobility solution, for the delivery of services and the gathering and analysis of performance outcome metrics. “We are pleased to partner with The Southern Network on this most important of efforts,” says Tony Lakier, RedMane Technology LLC’s president. “Their work is inspiring, and we are excited to bring our expertise to help them with their family-focused mission. mCase is a wonderful fit for The Southern Network’s needs.”
mCase will allow caseworkers to conveniently complete intakes and assessments, work collaboratively on case plans, and offer and track services for mothers and children. With mCase, caseworkers can easily collaborate across agencies to fully coordinate services and resources within the Southern Network.
mCase will provide reports and dashboards to track progress and performance outcomes. This will allow specialists to refine their strategies, target their efforts, and provide early intervention. It will also facilitate the integrity and transparency of the measurement and reporting of performance outcome metrics.
