Professional with expertise in this field
I have worked in a software vendor capacity with Sound Community Services over the last 8 months. It is always mentioned that healthcare in general is slow to change, and this belief is probably even more profound for the behavioral health community. Gail Lawson and her team at Sound are an exception to this widely-held belief. They have creatively used technology to drive greater productivity but, more importantly, to deliver high quality care to those societal members most in need. They possess great attitudes, are enthusiastic about their mission, and deliver a great service to their clients. One doesn't run across high-performing and ethical organizations very often, so it leaves a lasting impression when you do come across one. Sound Community Services has certainly made a lasting impression on me.
