Provider Referral and Tracking (PRT) – for the integration of provider referrals, reporting, and case management into a common system.
Random Test Notification (RTN) – to automate and standardize the selection and notification process for clients required to submit to substance testing.
Primary Case Management (PCM) – for a fully-hosted software-as-a-service (SaaS) model comprehensive Probation/Pre-trial Case Management system.
