You’ve faced so many changes in the behavioral healthcare industry, with the Affordable Care Act and HITECH pushing for the adoption of electronic health record solutions. You think you’ve put together a technology solution that addresses all of your business needs, client care issues, and regulatory reporting requirements.
But are you sure it’s serving all of your needs?
The following points may help you answer that question.
If you find your staff and clinicians aren’t able to keep up with productivity demands and also report on outcomes with your current system, it might not be meeting all of your needs. A hybrid EHR system can actually cause you more work on the back end in trying to get systems to communicate with each other than a fully integrated EHR platform would.
Better Business Model
As a result of both the ACA and HITECH, you may have made changes to your business model in an effort to achieve compliance with meaningful use and client care initiatives. But if your current workflows don’t mesh well with your technology solution, your needs are definitely not being served. A trusted EHR solution provider can guide you through the changes necessary to take full advantage of EHR technology. This will help you build a better business model that everyone—staff and clinicians alike—can get behind.
Is your hybrid solution holding you back from expanding your services and reaching new clients where they are in the behavioral healthcare process? Or perhaps your solution doesn’t support the complex reporting needs required by state and federal regulatory mandates. A new, fully integrated EHR platform is both scalable and offers fully-featured business intelligence tools for reporting, plus a lot more functionality like mobile capabilities for case managers working outside the office.
Your Next Steps
If any of the above points resonated with your current hybrid technology solution, there’s a comprehensive resource that will guide you step-by-step through the process of switching EHRs to a fully integrated EHR platform solution.
