Now that we have released our second add on, we are returning to the main Foster Parent Assistant application. The next update for Foster Parent Assistant will be more than just a maintenance update. We are making some significant changes to the application. These changes were suggested by a foster parent in our community. As always, our goal with Foster Parent Assistant is to meet the record keeping requirements of foster parents. Therefore, it is important for us to work with actual foster parents to determine how best to meet these needs. In response to this feedback, here is a sneak peak at the changes we are planning for the next version of Foster Parent Assistant (probably version 1.3).
- Complete revision of the system for navigating between foster children (and between conversations and notes)
- Addition of the ability to enter a (encrypted) social security number for each foster child
- Addition of the ability to enter a medical insurance number for each foster child
- Allow foster parents to add more than one biological parent name for each foster child
As of right now, these are the planned updates to the main application. In addition, we will begin development of the next add on in the near future. We will save discussion of that for a later blog post. We are still in the process of deciding among several options for the next add on. As always, stay tuned for more information regarding this continually evolving application.
