Metova launches iPad app DocNow

Metova and Ntegral Applications announced today they have launched DocNow, an iPad application that assists therapists with the tedious process of recording notes for speech, occupational and physical therapy.

The two entities unveiled DocNow to more than 250 special education professionals at the annual Arkansas Association of Special Education Administrators conference, which was held June 24 in Eureka Springs, Ark.

With DocNow, users can manage their caseloads on-the-go, documenting sessions from remote areas to save time and increase efficiency. Previously, people would have to manually log information on paper during a therapy session and transfer that information into an electronic system at another time.

“With just a couple of taps, DocNow records and tracks progress made towards clients’ goals and objectives,” John Adams, CEO of Franklin-based Metova. “The mobile application produces easy-to-access reports and provides statistics and analytics for parents, staff and management.”

Ntegral Applications is based in Little Rock, Ark.

Thompson's Station, Franklin lead local cities in home price gains

Real estate research firm Zillow's latest report on the Middle Tennessee housing market includes plenty of good news, especially for Williamson County homeowners. The company's price index for the Nashville MSA, which estimates the median value of all homes in the area, climbed 3.4 percent in the year ended June 30. Leading the way among local cities is Thompson's Station, where the median value has shot up almost 12 percent in the past 12 months. Franklin and Brentwood come in second and third with gains of 9.3 percent and 7 percent, respectively.

Those looking for more big local price gains are likely to be disappointed, however. Zillow's researchers expect the median home value to rise just 0.3 percent. Among the region's cities, Thompson's Station is expected to gain 3 percent by mid-2014. Franklin is the only other area forecast to see prices rise more than 2 percent. Check out the full list here.
