Netsmart and Human Services Providers Share Value of Technology Innovation During National Health IT Week

Netsmart clients cite care integration, time-saving speech recognition and insightful data analytics as benefits of health IT to serve their communities

Overland Park, Kan., Sept. 27, 2016 – Netsmart is joining with healthcare organizations nationwide to highlight the value of technology as a tool to improve care. In a just-released CareThreads blog created as part of National Health IT Week, the human services and integrated care technology leader highlights three organizations and new possibilities realized with innovative tools and processes:

  • Cohen Veterans Network - CVN was launched in April of this year to serve post-911 veterans and their families living with the mental and physical scars from serving their country. Using the Netsmart myEvolv® CareRecord™, an electronic health record (EHR) solution, CVN can track the outcomes of behavioral health services, apply evidence-based practices (EBP), use data analytics to determine best treatments and practices and seamlessly refer clients needing additional services.
  • Henderson Behavioral Health - A pioneer in providing “whole person” care in southeastern Florida, Henderson Behavioral Health’s primary care physicians have the ability to go from clinic to clinic with a computer tablet, documenting client progress and treatment. The data synchronizes with Netsmart’s myAvatar® CareRecord solution to provide a complete picture of a person’s physical and behavioral health.
  • KVC Hospitals - KVC is among the early adopters of the first voice-integrated behavioral health EHR. Integration of M*Modal's Fluency Direct® technology within a Netsmart CareRecord solution decreases data entry time, allowing staff to focus more time on patient care.

“National Healthcare IT Week is important because it prompts us to again reflect on our collective impact on access to care, care integration, operational efficiencies and, ultimately, improved outcomes” said Netsmart CEO Mike Valentine. “We’re proud to spend each day passionate to have the opportunity to serve alongside our clients on the front lines of care. Technology allows us to collaborate and positively impact the lives of millions.”

Netsmart encourages you to use National Health IT Week to explore the value of health IT. Read the CareThreads blog and follow the hashtags #NHITWeek and #IHeartHIT as the best uses of information technology are put on display.
