RiteTrack for Tribal Treatment and Wellness Programs

You can view a recording of our webinar that examined how RiteTrack is used for Tribal Treatment and Wellness Programs here.

The Treatment Services module is used by counseling, substance abuse, mental health, and similar tribal programs. During this recording you can see the functionality available for treatment and recovery support services.

This module was built with direction from recognized mental health best practices and offers a wealth of standard functionality. Handel also allows for extensive configuration options to ensure the system reflects the Tribe’s cultural values for mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Functionality illustrated in the recording includes:

These modules can be paired with other RiteTrack modules to incorporate the directives of Tribal Healing to Wellness Programs.

Handel Information Technologies, Inc. Celebrates 20 Years in Business

In an era when software companies come and go, Handel Information Technologies has achieved two decades of innovation and growth.

Handel began operating in 1997 as a general IT consulting company. In 1998 Handel landed a contract to develop a software solution for a juvenile assessment center in Colorado. Shortly after this solution was implemented other counties started calling for similar solutions.

Recognizing the opportunity, Even Brande, the company’s founder and President, saw an unmet need in the market for juvenile justice software solutions and created the first version of RiteTrack. Through subsequent generations RiteTrack has grown into a robust, web-based, off-the-shelf solution for juvenile justice programs and tribal social service.

The early success of the custom-developed RiteTrack system indicated there was a need for reliable database solutions to manage and report on case and client information. Over the years, Handel secured contracts with juvenile detention centers and Native American Tribal governments, and through close partnership, developers recognized that each group had common information and reporting needs.

This led the company to begin developing a standard solution that could be sold out-of-the-box, but we also realized juvenile programs and Tribes often had data needs unique to their programs as well. So, the current version of RiteTrack offers standard functionality with the option to tailor or customize some data points to fit an organization’s specific needs.

Handel found its niche and thrives on serving the organizations and employees in these fields who provide support to their clients or members.

Currently Handel has remote offices in every time zone in the continental U.S. with its headquarters in Laramie, Wyo.

Being part of the close-knit community of Laramie, Brande gives back to the community in many ways. He and his wife Anne Brande remodeled and restored the building at 200 S. 3rd St.

Brande also gives generously to organizations and clubs in the community and has been or currently sits on many boards including the UW College of Business Advisory Board, the UW Computer Science Advisory Board, and the Leadership Wyoming Advisory Board.

He and Anne have served as Campaign Co-Chair of Albany County United Way, and Handel adopted a stretch of the Laramie Greenbelt that Brande and employees help keep clean.

Handel’s employees also volunteer their time in the community for various organizations that help improve the quality of life for everyone in Laramie, Albany County, and Wyoming.

Handel will commemorate the occasion with a Business After Hours event on October 12, 2017 at the headquarters in Laramie, Wyo. The public is welcome to attend.
