The 26th of February 2017 marked CareDirector’s 20 year anniversary. CareDirector is delighted to celebrate 20 years in business and we are looking forward to continuing to deliver high quality health and human services solutions.

We would like to take a moment to thank all our staff and customers who have been involved with CareDirector over the last 20 years. You have helped to make us the company that we are today.

As CareDirector was founded in 1997 we thought we would look back and see how far technology has come since then and what was happening in 1997.
