Good Evening Mike Valentine, Jason Douthit and Mike Jones,
First off, I want to start by pointing out a phrase that was used in a previous email received, (see highlighted sentence in email below)…
With that out of the way, I am wanting to contribute to the Netsmart Life webpage. Here’s how….ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE!! Continue reading Netsmart Technologies ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. #HelpFightALS
A street reporter spends the vast majority of his time talking about endings. Sure, the language is active – live, breaking, happening now – but he’s really telling you about outcomes. The outcome of an angry ongoing conflict is a headline-grabbing murder. A devastating fire might be the end result of a careless smoker dozing-off one too many times with a red-tipped cigarette dangling from her lips. The crumpled remains of a sports car littering a residential street at two in the morning represent the culmination of a night of drinking combined with youthful hubris. For 23 years, prior to coming to Netsmart, I reported on endings for news radio stations in San Francisco, Kansas City, Chicago and Washington, D.C. Continue reading Upstream
The Engineering Futures Say Goodbye
The software engineering futures accomplished many tasks this summer. Our first tasks were working with full-time engineers on team projects where each Future was a part of a different Netsmart Solution. Although our parts may have seemed small many of the Futures ended up saving a lot of time and money for the company. Then we split into two teams to work on two restful services Fitbit and Twilio. Continue reading The Engineering Futures Say Goodbye
I had the pleasure and honor of providing the executive welcome to the new hire start group today. During the dialogue I asked the group how they learned about Netsmart and why they wanted to work at Netsmart. A number of the responses were expected… I have a friend here… I hear it’s a good place to work… I was looking for a company that was growing. One new associate said that Netsmart was recommended to her by a friend who is a Netsmart associate and told “everybody works hard here”. The new associate said that is why she wanted to join Netsmart. I thought it was a great response and reminds me that everybody does work hard here because the work that we do is hard. That’s why we choose to be here. To do work that is hard and to do it well. Here’s to working hard and playing hard!

If you would have asked me in the beginning, what I expected to gain from this internship, I would have retorted with the typical, boss-pleasing response involving one of the following: to gain insight to corporate life, or to expand my knowledge within my chosen career path, or even better yet, to align my wants with the company’s needs so that we may function as a cohesive unit, constantly working toward a common solution or goal that benefits both parties. Just imagine the look on that executive’s face after piping off with that last little beauty. Continue reading The Netsmart Bunch
As a senior in college, my thoughts are constantly on my future career and my looming graduation date. I could easily let myself overthink and worry about this future. Not to mention the fact that being a college student nowadays means that I am repeatedly told about the “horror story” that is the current job market and how competitive my résumé needs to be in order to land that dream job. All of these thoughts lead to one stressed out individual. However, my mind is put to ease when I think about my past internship with Netsmart and my ongoing one this year. My experience gives me confidence in my ability to be successful. Unfortunately, this is not the case for every internship out there. It takes a special kind of company to be willing to invest in the blooming workforce in a way that creates a lasting impact. Netsmart has given me this opportunity to grow through the Futures program. It was and is my job to take these opportunities and make the most of them.

The Netsmart way. There are many things that one could perceive from this statement. Yesterday the Netsmart way was to excite all the futures with a free lunch and also a little behind the scenes learning session with Matthew Arnheiter over the product life cycle. All though we didn’t make it through Matthew’s entire presentation we still learned a lot. We learned how much money is spent by our government and insurance companies (Billions!) but the results don’t come close to their expenses. We also talked about the idea of preventative health, and how much it could reduce many of the expenses if people were being seen by doctors regularly and not just when they feel sick or if something’s wrong.

Hello fellow Netsmartians! My name is Sarah Sauer, and I am a new Delivery Analyst Avatar Future here at Netsmart. This first week of training has been an interesting one, but overall I could not be happier to be here.
I first came upon Netsmart when I was researching employers coming to the Oklahoma State career fair last fall. Being a Nutritional Sciences Pre-Medicine major, there weren’t many options applicable to me. Netsmart, however, caught my eye due to its close relationship with the healthcare field. I researched the company website, and sought out their booth on the day of the event.
