Directions for Editing Provider Profiles
Provider Search Tool
The Summit DD Board has created a provider search tool that allows consumers to search for DD providers by name, funding source, and service certifications. The Web address of the new tool is http://www.summitdd.org/provider_search.aspx
Service providers can log into the tool to update their agency or individual provider information, including name, address, and services for which new clients are being accepted. Providers can also upload an image file containing their logo, and providers can enter a detailed profile to provide potential clients with information about services and amenities offered, their history and philosophy and any other information that they believe will help consumers choose appropriately.
Editing Your Provider Information
Logging in to the Tool
If you are a service provider in Summit County, you should have received a letter providing you with a username and password that will allow you to log in to the new tool to update your information. If you have not received a user name and password and you believe you should have, please contact the Provider Services Coordinator at 330-634-8079. To log in to the new tool, visit the Summit DD homepage and click log in.
