From Twogether Consulting!
Hello IDD providers!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Hope everyone will join us for our FREE resource webinar on February 21st, 2024 from noon to 1pm. We are happy to announce that Larry Hill from TaskMaster Pro will be presenting information on their new software from TaskMaster Pro, specifically designed for ISS providers. For more information, please check out our calendars on our website: www.twogetherconsulting.com
Many individuals with IDD across the U.S. participated in “Prom” events this past weekend. I hope they had a wonderful time. Austin has their own event, “Night To Shine” where over 150 individuals with IDD have attended the festivities. Grace Covenant Church, has hosted the Austin event for the past few years. The event I believe is part of a movement created by professional football player Tim Tebow’s foundation called “Prom With A Purpose”. For more information on how you can be a part of your prom, click on the following link: https://timtebowfoundation.org/single-pages/prom-with-a-purpose
Twogether Consulting has live nursing training for Houston
for the following dates: February 26th & 27th, 2024. On one of the 2 days, Core-VA Solutions will be hosting lunch
for those who want to stay and attend a meet and greet to discuss how Core-va Solutions can assist providers with billing, EVV and many other tasks to make life easier.
Due to some other projects and obligations, we are still trying to decide on when to schedule live 3-day Case Management training in San Antonio. (Care Coordination training series-Part I, II, III, IV & V). We may wait til the wait middle of Spring. We will be doing some follow up sessions for Case Management and Nursing in Houston between March and April and those should be scheduled in the next few weeks on the calendar.
We are happy to say that we will continue to provide whatever assistance we can with questions you may have, especially concerning HCS/TxHmL Care Coordination, Nursing, or general survey requirements from LTCR department in these programs. We provide assistance to those working with the ICF/IID program as well and expect to have some webinars in the near future for ICF including nursing.
We are currently providing on-site live training at this time and live training is open to the public as well.
FYI-We do still have “mentoring” assistance (especially great for new nurses) from our RN consultant on an as-needed basis. If you have new nurses who need training quicker than classes posted on the calendar, please let me know and we do offer some of our previously recorded sessions for a low cost which includes the handouts. We are also happy to schedule one-on-one training sessions and mentoring with either of our 2 nurse consultants.
