Dr. Denny Morrison leads our clinical team in transforming clinical care in behavioral health by focusing on evidence-based practice, recovery- and research-based care, coordinated care planning, and the integration of behavioral and primary care.

Denny has worked in the behavioral health field since 1969. Academically, he holds two Masters degrees in Psychology and Exercise Physiology from Ball State University. His doctorate is in Counseling Psychology also from Ball State University. He is co-inventor on a patent for a behavioral healthcare outcomes software product.

Prior to joining Netsmart in 2012, he served as the CEO of the Center for Behavioral Health (CBH) in Bloomington, Indiana since 1995. CBH was the first behavioral health company to ever win the JCAHO Codman Award for excellence in the use of outcomes measurement to achieve health care quality improvement; the second to win the HIMSS Nicholas E. Davies Award for Excellence in the implementation of Electronic Health Records (EHR); and the only organization in the world to have won both awards. In 2007, CBH was awarded the Negley Chairman’s Award for Excellence in Risk Management.

In May 2008, CBH merged with three other CMHCs creating a $120 million multistate provider organization serving 70,000 consumers per year. To integrate and manage all the Research and Information Technology services for the merged entities, a new corporation, Centerstone Research Institute, was formed and Dr Morrison was named its CEO. At CRI, Morrison was responsible for integrating four different EHRs across two states into a single, homogeneous EHR that is completely internally managed and serves 1800 employees, approximately 1400 of which are clinicians serving 70,000 patients per year across two states.
