Our Child & Teen Checkups User Group (C&TC) is one of MnCCC's newest user groups. It has been formed to improve documentation workflow and reporting, capitalize on advancements in technology and reduce a significant amount of manual work required to maintain data integrity and reports required by the state.

The Tyler User Group is currently underway! We are looking forward to getting this group off the ground, and with your help and participation, we will have another successful user group under MnCCC that works collaboratively to make sure our counties are using the best software, contracted specifically with them in mind. The group will consist of Tyler users under contract through MnCCC, which has been customized for Minnesota counties. User group duties will include implementation, standardization, and testing and training for contracted items. This will be a great opportunity for members at all stages of implementation to collaborate and troubleshoot throughout the process.
