What is the messaging?

Stimmi’s messaging section tears down the silos of communication allowing communication across different venues.  Now job coaches and therapists can see the same information and share important insights to provide the best quality care. Parents can set up communication topics that are relevant to them.  You can get notifications of new messages through email or the Apps.

With the Video library, videos are uploaded to SHOW and Tell important information about the person. The use of videos cuts down training time, eliminates misunderstanding and fosters better, safer cares.

What about security?

Security is very important to us. Each account and each user has to create a password protected access.  Account owners can decide who sees the data by inviting and uninviting caregivers.  The information is hosted on a secure server.

Through the messaging, different members of agencies can share updates and information. This helps streamline information sharing.

Parents can keep forms in the My files section that they need to complete and mail monthly to agencies.
