I’m a big fan of the Bluetooth headphones because I don’t like cords anchoring me to my ginormous iPhone. Don’t get me wrong… I love my ginormous iPhone, but I don’t want it snuggling up to my body all the time so that my Bluetooth can work. You might be familiar with the eternal struggle…
I’m good at technology and I love it. It enhances my social work practice and personal life. I recently took time to download and look over a draft proposal of Technology Standards in Social Work Practice [“The Standards” or “Technology Standards”]. Found it. Bound it. Gonna share some #swtech knowledge and hope that my #SocialWork…
For anyone working in a system where they practice social work, changes changes can be welcomed, worry inducing, or resisted. As time gets longer, one will inevitably be brought into the world of technological advancement, whether its through digital case management being implemented or having to upgrade your phone. Embracing technology can be daunting. The…
I use my iPad mini to write clinical notes on a PDF-reader program. (I should make a separate blog post about how to make your iPad HIPAA compliant.) On the app, I will use iOS dictation to write my notes, but when that’s unavailable, I will use my thumbs on the touch screen.
I’ve gotten lazy about trivial matters like text messaging – I blame aging on this. While it’s aggravating to talk to people that still use “u” and “ur” (I’ve stopped talking to those people), I use several of these keyboard shortcuts now when I text.
The current state of your password management is probably intolerable, with Post-It notes, random pieces of paper, or other primitive tracking methods to keep track of multiple logins, sites, and credit card information – and we do this to keep our personal and professional lives in order. It’s almost like you’re dying to get hacked into or locked out of your accounts.
Oh, and don’t you love it when you’re prompted, almost randomly, to change your password? At some point you start running out of colors, farm animals, and the names of friends and nephews, to integrate into a string of lower-case, upper-case, number, astrological sign, and special characters.
I wanted to write about some of the apps that I use on a daily basis. As the internet has become a daily part of our existence, it’s common to run into content, stories, etc. that resonates with you.
Pocket is Free App That I Use Daily
Pocket is that safe harbor to keep, clip, archive, store, and share online reading. It is a “read it later” app which allows you to digitally “clip” articles and revisit them later. If you’re a busy social worker like me that can catch a quick glimpse of social media during a brea, then this app is for you! As far as I know, Pocket does not work on any type of payment model. The experience in using this service is what you would expect from paying a premium – the functionality, apps, and clipping are all very well executed – all for no cost to the consumer.
I recently received the following tweet from from a follower, asking for a recommendation
Evernote presents a dilemma for me: I love it but it’s not HIPAA friendly. This is how I use the app for things concerning clients and can be helpful for people that practice as therapists, psychologist, and related fields of social work!
Happy belated Valentine’s Day! If there’s anything that I love more than anything about my profession, it’s the documentation process! Case note writing is a dreadful chore necessary task that is near and dear to my heart.
