Behavioral Health And Mental Health Treatment
Millions of Americans, of all ages, seek behavioral health and mental health treatment every year.
However, access to
care is becoming an increasing challenge
for many. Not only are the caregivers, hospitals and
behavioral healthcare programs working at maximum capacity. The cost of care continues to rise, while payments fail
to keep up. In addition, many agencies are implementing
services integration at the program, department and agency
levels, often called “no wrong door” or “front
door” programs. These programs improve the quality of services
they deliver to their clients, while reducing duplicative
services and allowing agencies to redeploy staff more effectively.
In addition, there is a large movement to utilize technology
to automate the
prescribing of drugs. Online prescribing, or
e-Prescribing, not only helps
control costs. It reduces the amount of medication errors and improves the
tracking of drugs prescribed.
Never has there been a more important time to implement operational efficiencies
within your organization, including understanding how investment in a technology
infrastructure can have a dramatic positive impact on the quality of care, productivity

Avatar Mobile, an optional module to Avatar PM and CWS, offers staff access to important decision-support tools away from the office. Electronic health records are accessed and managed at the point of service, providing the worker with vital information and eliminating the need to re-enter service records and related data upon their return to the office.
