    John Dickerson, Founder & CEO of Quillo, joins James Griffith of Cura OS

    We speak a lot on this podcast about how powerful software tools can greatly empower you as a caregiver to put your focus back on the people in your care and not the process, helping you unlock the transformative potential of person centered planning and care, but it's about more than just the clients. It's about the employees too, the whole team. These tools can enable you to create community and culture that wraps everybody in the caregiving process into a shared experience. And today we're very fortunate to have John Dickerson, founder and CEO of Quillo, which is an amazing piece of software that does just THAT, using the power of storytelling and video content.
    So let's join James Griffith of Cura, OS, and John Dickerson of Quillo for an amazing conversation. These are two men that have decades of real boots-on-the ground experience in caregiving, and they've found a way to translate that experience into really wonderful and functional software.

    Person Centered is not just having the person in the center of what you want to do for them. They're directing it. And even if they can't speak, they can tell you what they want. One of the great things about person centered planning is that the person is actually in charge of their life.

    In this warm conversation with James Griffith and Bridgette Wilson (CEO & COO of Cura OS) she discusses the importance of person centered care planning with rich details from her decades of experience.

    Caroline Meehan of the Community Provider Association returns!

    Caroline Meehan of the Community Provider Association returns!

    This week on the podcast Caroline Meehan of the Community Provider Association returns to talk about the power of community and sharing resources, and how an ever-changing industry needs the group-sourced intelligence of the CPA and smarter software solutions like CURA OS that streamlines this hard-earned wisdom.

    Caroline:  "I see a real kind of tie in between what the CPA tries to do and what Cura is trying to do, which is...I think a lot of what we do at the CPA is just trying to remove bureaucratic hurdles for providers, but the people who suffer from bureaucratic hurdles are the people receiving services. I think at the end of the day, it becomes less person centered. The staff becomes less engaged and I see us as the CPA trying to do that at the level of the department of health CMS, even at the federal level. And I think what y'all are doing at Cura is on the individual organization level, trying to streamline processes, and the paper pushing that gets in the way of doing the quote unquote real work. And it is the real work.
      And I just, I just I commend you all for doing that. And I don't think anyone goes into any job to do paperwork. But I guarantee that a direct support professional does not go into that job to do paperwork. As you were saying, it's a mission. It's a calling for them and they, anything we can do to remove the red tape I think is valuable"
