The past several years have seen accelerated technology application for healthcare organizations across the continuum of care, but this trend hasn’t always been the case. The origins of healthcare IT adoption for providers stemmed from the financial compliance era for electronic health records (EHRs). Historically, behavioral health providers across the country had been slower to adopt healthcare IT in comparison to other care settings; but the shift of bringing consumers and clinicians to the technology table has driven rapid innovation and development of solutions and services.
In this episode, Tom Herzog, Chief Operating Officer, speaks with Dr. Dennis Morrison, Chief Clinical Officer about his unique experience adopting and applying healthcare technology throughout his career. A psychologist by training, Dr. Denny has been in various corners of the healthcare landscape over the last 30 years, running a community mental health center (CMHC) and leading a research institute before landing at Netsmart. The thought leaders unpack the past, present and future of behavioral health care delivery including the intersection of clinical and technology, improved outcomes and next-generation healthcare IT on the horizon.
