Athena Software today announced the introduction of A-Kiosk designed for use at counseling centers that want a fast, convenient method to collect individual information. A-Kiosk works with new or existing installations of Athena Software to maximize use of resources and offer more effective programs and services for counseling, family services, mental health centers and EAP providers by allowing clients to begin their own intake process and enter information directly into the system. In addition, to saving time and streamlining the intake process, the confidentiality afforded by A-Kiosk helps to make clients feel more comfortable about identifying the nature and details of their service request.
The A-Kiosk is being used by the University of Waterloo to provide easier access and more coverage to the student population. ÂAthenaÂs A-Kiosk makes it easy to intake thousands of students each year.
Creating statistics for our department is critical and A-Kiosk combined with AthenaÂs pivot tables provides the information we need to make decisions on services provided.Â said Lorraine Nesbitt, Administrative Assistant Counseling Services University of Waterloo. ÂA-Kiosk supports our decision to invest in Athena Software with new enhancements being added each year.Â Dana Fox, Director of Business Development Athena Software, said,"We continually look for improvements to deliver to our customers. A-Kiosk is another great example of how closely we work with our customers."
A-Kiosk is a functional extension of Athena case management software that fully integrates:
-worker /client scheduling
-client outcomes evaluation
-clinical case and session note recording
-program service delivery details
-comprehensive reporting functions
-client self-intake kiosk mode
-internal communications and workflow management tools
Athena Software, an IBM Business Partner, is listed by the United Way of AmericaÂs Outcome Measurement Resource Network (www. unitedway. org/outcomes (http://www. unitedway. org/outcomes)) and supports the United Way of America (UWA) new Standards of Excellence initiative.
