YES, THE PINT CANS APP SAVES STAFF TIME AND MONEY, BUT IN MANY WAYS, THE OTHER BENEFITS ARE JUST SO PRICELESS: YOUTH CULTURE IS EASIER TO ENGAGE; STAFF IS ABLE TO SHARE PICTORIALLY THE PROGRESS WITH THE CLIENT; STAFF DON'T HAVE TO ENTER INFO INTO A DATABASE AS IT IS ALL INEGRATED; AND INDIVIDUAL AGENCIES ARE ABLE TO CUSTOMIZE THE APP TO GET THEIR UNIQUE REQUIREMENTS.
I like the CANS app because it is user/client friendly, easy to use, creates conversation and saves time when I am updating the CANS with a client and also saves the time of inputting CANS data.
I would recommend the app for the time savings and also for the "neat features" such as the built-in manual, the graphs showing change over time, the potential to do the treatment plan on the app, importing data from the previous CANS into current CANS, and also the ability to export the data and use it for analysis. Also clients (especially the youth) understand the technology so it is usually more engaging for them.
