Stark County, Ohio Board of DD Provider Search

1/11/2011 -

The Stark County Board of Developmental Disabilities has gone live with a new online tool (available at to help Stark County families choose service providers and to help refer individuals who need services to providers.

This tool --- already implemented in two other Ohio counties --- allows consumers and caregivers to search for providers by service, funding source, provider type and name. It also allows providers to log in and update their own provider profile, including providing narrative answers to a number of key profile questions.

iData also worked with Stark County to implement the online referral tool. Using the tool, Service and Support Administrators can create referrals which are forwarded through an automated workflow process for approval. Once approved, the referrals can be searched by providers, and providers can contact the Support Administrator for additional information or to indicate their interest in providing the needed services.
