Handel’s Vice President was selected to speak at this year’s National Indian and Native American Employment and Training Conference (NINAETC). Casey Bader will present to conference attendees on integrating data for tribal social service departments.
The presentation will focus on the potential benefits, likely challenges, and recognized best practices in these types of integrated systems evaluations.
Bader has presented at numerous conferences including the:
- 2015 National Tribal Child Support Association Conference
- 2013, 2014, and 2015 National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA) National American Indian Conferences on Child Abuse and Neglect
- 2012 and 2013 United South and Eastern Tribes (USET) Annual Meetings
- 2012 and 2013 TribalNet Conferences
- 2013 Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians (ATNI) Convention
This year’s NINAETC workshop will explore the benefits, challenges, and best practices involved with evaluating integrated solutions. Whether integrating government, tribal-developed, and/or third-party systems, the principles are similar.
Integrated systems minimize barriers to accessing services, enable better use of staff resources, and improve reporting on successes and/or needs to Tribal Council, funding sources, and members.
However, Tribes should create a financial and resource cost/benefit analysis and consider security and confidentiality requirements because these solutions may not always be the best option.
Bader has over 15 years of experience identifying barriers to, evaluating and implementing complex software solutions for social service organizations.
Past conference workshop topics have included engaging membership through technology, the White Earth Nation WE CARE service delivery model, and best practices for enterprise-wide software implementations.
