The magic of MPOWR lives in its ability for shared doing via communication and data sharing between multiple service agencies. MPOWR helps an administrator set achievement plans for participants based on their unique needs. Agencies collaborate and share the responsibility of helping each individual achieve their goals step by step. We call this “shared doing,” and it is achieving positive results across the country.
Shared doing drastically reduces participant’s “agency time,” or time spent re-hashing their needs at every agency they visit. Participants get the help they need quicker, while case managers are able to serve more participants effectively.
Upon intake of a participant, their initial needs assessment is recorded in MPOWR in real time. As participants engage with multiple agency providers, their progress toward achievement plans is visible to their growing case manager care team. MPOWR makes it easy to keep everyone on the same page regarding progress toward a participant’s achievement plan.
Although MPOWR houses a robust data sharing tool at its core, we understand data sensitivity, and have unique features that ensure a specific level of information sharing based on participant preferences.

Problems and challenges within a person’s life are rarely tied to one social, behavioral, or medical factor. We understand this and built a tool that allows participants to receive a holistic set of services that solves the root causes of social issues they are experiencing. To achieve holistic care, agencies within a collaborative refer participants to the appropriate professional, based on client’s unique situations and provider’s capabilities.
For example, a homeless man goes to a shelter to receive services. During the engagement, he is identified as having a mental health condition. Through MPOWR, the shelter is able to refer that man to a mental health service provider within the collaborative directly. With his consent, the homeless shelter case manager can share the man’s intake and progress notes stored in the centralized MPOWR data system. With consent for release of information, upon arrival to the mental health provider, his records can be viewed easily within the system.
