ABLE Tech to Launch NEW Device Inventory Database
STILLWATER, Okla. 一 On July 7th, Oklahoma ABLE Tech will launch a new process for requesting short-term device loans, gently-used durable medical equipment (DME), and assistive technology (AT) exchange items. This database is called NATADS. It will enhance Oklahoman’s ability to access AT.
For over 10 years, ABLE Tech used NATADS to track device inventory and short-term loans. With the new functionality, Oklahomans can use the system to register, log in, and submit a request for devices from a public access side.
Multiple search functions make it easy for Oklahomans to choose the best device(s) to request, and real-time feedback shows available items. The system is quick, reliable, and completely confidential. Anyone can create a free account here: https://myatprogram.org/home/40
“Oklahoma ABLE Tech takes pride in our ability to provide assistive technology to Oklahomans in need. Our new process for device requests allows us to serve more Oklahomans in an expedited fashion,” Associate Director for Sponsored Programs Linda Jaco said.
ABLE Tech was recently named #1 in the nation of the 56 existing AT Act Device Exchange Programs and #3 in the nation of the 56 AT Act Device Short-term Loan Programs. With this new process, ABLE Tech hopes to continue to improve its ability to help Oklahomans in need.
