It’s been a quick five weeks at Netsmart and week six was no different! The Engineering department had an early 4th of July cookout the Thursday before the holiday. Even though the weather was bad, the burgers and hot dogs were great. Continue reading Week 6: A Pretty Big Deal – Anna Scheuler
As the halfway point nears in our summers, I think we’re all starting to realize that the classic “9-5” work schedule sometimes means “8:30-5:30,” and when you get home from work, you are tired, and you don’t even want to make yourself dinner (If my parents somehow stumble upon this blog, THANK YOU for your countless 9-5 days and dinner). Continue reading Week 5: Hosting Events as a Future – Megan Douglah
There is nothing Futures love to do more than learning! This summer we’ve had plenty of opportunities to learn more about Netsmart and what other teams here do. In the past few weeks, we have attended three Lunch n Learns, and every team’s Futures have hosted a Hot Spot. Continue reading Week 5: Hosting Events as a Future – Jack Moore
Throughout our time as a Future here at Netsmart Technologies we have been to events that are very fun and enjoyable; where we perform activities and volunteer our time to come have fun together.
After a recreational trip to the plaza the previous week, we were ready to put our volunteer skills to work for the Every Day Matters campaign. This year the Futures split their day working between KVC’s Prairie Ridge Children’s Psychiatric Hospital and the Indian Woods Middle School. In the morning, our group visited the children’s hospital, where we participated in a tour of the facility and learned how Netsmart’s solutions play a crucial role in day-to-day operations. After the tour, we had the opportunity to channel our inner child, and play a variety of games with some of the children. One of the games we played was a spin-off of rock, paper, scissors that involved giants, elves, and wizards. Natalie even made a couple of new friends who kept referring to her as “Mini-Me”. The children and staff there were so friendly and everyone had a great time.
During week 2, the main focus was getting settled into our work flow, our groups and meeting team members. Engineering learned more details about their specific group project that they will complete for the summer and were assigned their roles. Consulting was shown more about the billing and clinical cycles. Then cloud computing worked with a microcomputer called the Raspberry Pi that was set up to work with their network testing. All in all, the three of us from our separate groups learned a lot about our individual teams but we are still working on learning the ropes. But we’ve also discovered our greatest asset, the Keurig machines. Continue reading FUTURES Week 2: Settling In and Setting up!
To welcome the 28 new Futures, in true Netsmart fashion, we attended an 80s themed skate party at the nearby Skate City. Although none of the Futures were born in that era, we all busted out our most bodacious outfits. Some of the most outrageous outfits included MC Hammer pants, neon leggings, and even a dudical He-Man costume. All of the Futures, their mentors, managers, and even the executives attended to give us a gnarly welcome.
At Netsmart, we move purposely with passion and intentionality. We focus on using innovative solutions to break down barriers and push the boundaries of the health and human services industry.
Our internship program is dubbed the “FUTURES” because those who participate are an important part of our future. Our program includes a balance between classroom-based and on-the-job learning, hands-on, client based work, professional development opportunities, leadership exposure and several social / networking events throughout the summer. #ntstfutures
This summer we will once again be kicking off the Netsmart “Back to the FUTURES” Program – for current college students! We will welcome 28 FUTURES to the Overland Park office on Monday, June 1st. Continue reading Netsmart “Back to the FUTURES” Program
“I have been with Netsmart since early November 2014, but have worked as a Project/Program Manager for over 15 years. Knowing that Netsmart values leadership and education, I brought an idea to the table regarding project management though the use of the Netsmart Yammer blog. Because of my blog post, I had the opportunity to meet with a member of the Netsmart Executive Team. We spoke about my project management philosophies and found that we both agree. It’s wonderful to know that Netsmart and its executives are always open to meeting and working with their staff.”
