Netsmart Game Changing Innovations are Catalyst for Human Services Move to Coordinated Care and Integrated Health Services

Mobile apps, multi-provider connectivity, data analytics help equip providers in new era of healthcare

Washington D.C., May 6, 2014 – The healthcare ecosystem is rapidly changing for behavioral health and other human services providers. Providers must adapt to major new realities including payment based on performance and outcomes, consumer-directed care, integration of behavioral health and acute care, and reporting on clinical quality measures.

“Amidst many challenges, the continuous evolution of the care ecosystem presents an opportunity for providers to furnish more comprehensive, coordinated care,” said Tom Herzog, chief operating officer, Netsmart. “We’re moving ahead at the speed of thought to provide innovative, pragmatic tools that help providers make a difference in the lives of millions in an environment of constant change.”

Netsmart is equipping providers with game changing innovations to help them succeed in the midst of major change. Netsmart’s exhibit (#517) at the National Council for Behavioral Health Conference ’14 May 5-7 in Washington, D.C. features innovations in action via scenarios of three people on their journeys to coordinated care in outpatient, inpatient, home and group counseling settings.
