CPNJ this week kicked off the implementation of an electronic health records (EHR) system that will allow us to streamline the collection of data across our 19 sites. CPNJ is partnering with Qualifacts, one of the premiere providers of EHR systems. The new system represents a major transition away from the paper-based system used by most nonprofit agencies to the cutting-edge of data collection and will allow the agency to operate more efficiently and, most importantly, better serve our consumers.
Cerebral Palsy of North Jersey (CPNJ) is dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with disabilities and other special needs by supporting personal growth, independence and participation in the community.
CPNJ recently worked with South Orange – Maplewood’s Jefferson School, which serves more than 500 students grades 3-5. The school required every student to read a book called “Out of My Mind.”, which is about a young girl with CP who is unable to communicate verbally. To help students better understand the challenges faced by those with disabilities Corry DeMarco, Volunteer Coordinator at CPNJ, presented workshops to each of 20 classes She also presented to more than 150 parents at a separate evening meeting.
