The Person-Centered Network App is a fully adaptable and easy to use tool to collect, analyze, and interpret data on personal support networks.

 

The Person-Centered Network App is a strengths-based, versatile, user-friendly tool that helping professionals -- like social workers, care navigators, doctors, and first responders -- use in the field with clients.

The goal of the tool is to improve care for that individual by identifying and visualizing their social support system, including people like friends and family that help coordinate care for them, and then using that as a starting place for prioritizing how to meet immediate needs.

This tool puts the client at the center of their care experience, acknowledging and leveraging their personal relationships as a part of their wellness plan, and it helps to narrow in on strategic referrals to social service systems.

The PCN App has the potential to change the way care is provided to patients. It illustrates how important it is to ask questions to patients that will get us to a better understanding of their system.

Reviewing the app together
The PCN App is groundbreaking with the potential to reach a greater number of people, greatly eliminate human error and communicates to the patient/client that the system is something that will adapt around them. I very much enjoyed being a part of this pilot experience. I learned something new about the way technology and mental health can work together to offer the best care possible.
