Both Five Points Technology Group, Inc. and Community Based Care Central Florida (Holdings) have long histories of working closely with the child welfare communities to create improvements in overall care delivery. It wasn’t until early 2015 that both organizations realized the potential for a joint venture that would capitalize on the strengths each company held together as a team, offering even more ways to create benefits for community based care organizations and those in care.
Community Based Care Innovations and Technologies, CBCIT, was formed on the basis of the opportunities for growth both companies see taking place in the child welfare landscape. “We’ve worked with Five Points for years”, says Glen Casel, President of CBCCFL (Holdings). “We appreciate their approach to innovative technologies in the work that we do and see many opportunities ahead for good work together, in Florida and other states seeking improvements and innovation in child welfare programs”. Elizabeth VanAcker, CEO of Five Points says “Working closely with CBC has enabled us to expand on our innovative technologies through their success with families in care. We love the idea of growing our systems in support of the kind of forward thinking work their team is bringing to community based care.”
As next steps in the team effort between the two companies, both see improved opportunities for Florida Foster Youth with the statewide implementation of Five Points’ My JumpVault software application, which was selected by the Florida Department of Children and Families in 2013 to deliver an internet based personal health record for children in foster care. CBCIT expects the software will help expand upon their prior successes by strengthening the relationship between families, foster parents, case managers and local service providers across the state.
