IT Project Services
The IT Project operates similar to a technology consulting firm. Clients purchase a block of time that they may use for any service. Once the block of time is depleted, clients simply purchase more so that their needs will continue to be met.
Other services offered by the NJAMHAA IT Project, some which are free of charge, include:
|Technology leadership and advocacy|
|Network administration - NJAMHAA will arrange to provide staff members to go to your site and assist you with your network planning, problem resolution and system maintenance. Contracts are available at various rates and levels of support to meet the needs of both large and small agencies.|
|Computer training at your agency – We all know training is the key to utilizing technology to its fullest extent and saves BIG money in the long run. Now, the IT Project has developed a program that makes training an even easier decision to make – onsite training at your agency!

Collaboratives Are the Way to Go for EHRs. By creating a more affordable way for agencies to implement EHRs, NJAMHAA is helping members maximize their investment and use of this critical technology and qualify for incentive payments from the federal government. There are currently two EHR vendors participating in our EHR Collaborative. Foothold Technology and Qualifacts Services, Inc.
