The annual PAR Solutions Conference was last week in Harrisburg, PA. PAR was incorporated in 1970 as a statewide, not-for-profit organization. PAR members provide the full range of supports and services to more than 47,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities, including over 8,000 children and adults living with autism, in over 8,100 locations. The yearly conference gives all its members a chance to meet with one another and share ideas between
agencies. MediSked has been a partner and member of PAR for several years and had the honor of being a vendor at this year’s conference. The highlights for me this year and every conference I attend is meeting the people and showing them MediSked Connect.
After meeting several executive directors, CEO’s, and program managers from various agencies across the state of Pennsylvania, I noticed that there was a common theme that kept on coming up. They always mentioned that the most important part of their agency is the individuals they serve and their Direct Support Professionals (DSP’s). Even though the executive directors may be the face of their agency, it is very clear who runs the agency. I always look forward to hearing their stories and to show them technology that will allow them to deliver services more effectively and efficiently.
