Behavioral Health Providers See Benefits of EHR Built With Mental Health in Mind
HCS to Showcase Behavioral Health-Specific Functionality that Meets Provider Needs at NABH
WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J., March 14, 2019 (Newswire.com) - HCS (www.hcsinteractant.com), a leading provider of an all-in-one EHR platform for inpatient behavioral health providers, has announced it will be a President Exhibitor at the 2019 National Association for Behavioral Healthcare (NABH) Annual Meeting taking place March 18-20 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Washington, DC.
NABH advocates for behavioral health and represents provider systems that are committed to the delivery of responsive, accountable, and clinically effective prevention, treatment, and care for children, adolescents, adults, and seniors with mental health and substance use disorders. HCS will be available in the exhibit area to give demonstrations of Interactant®, answer questions, and share client success stories.
HCS has seen much success in how its Interactant EHR platform is helping multi-site, inpatient behavioral health providers solve unmet needs in their industry. Most EHR solutions on the market today have been built for single hospital use in a short-term acute care setting without the unique requirements necessary to help these providers treat their patients’ needs effectively. Over the years, HCS has listened to feedback from these providers regarding the lack of focus on the behavioral health landscape and has successfully worked to help fill that void.
Recently, in their search for a new system, an acute inpatient psychiatric hospital in Arizona was excited to discover that HCS Interactant was an EHR solution focused on behavioral health. “What impressed us most about Interactant, was the breadth of functionality within the platform to support the unique needs of inpatient behavioral health services,” said the hospital medical director. “I’ve used so many EMR systems over the years, including the big two, and HCS Interactant is by far the best that I’ve used for this level of care. So often we are forced to use EMRs built for general hospital use; to find an EMR that actually meets the needs of an inpatient psychiatric facility is extremely helpful in supporting our mission.”
Interactant gathers so much patient data efficiently from assessments, electronic signatures of consent, and treatment plans, to capturing notes from therapy and group sessions within the system ensuring everyone that interacts with a patient is well informed and on the same page.
The behavioral health-specific functionality not only helps deliver exceptional care, it also makes life easier for clinicians. “With HCS Interactant, we are creating not only comfortable patient outcomes but also efficient environments for our staff,” said Thomas Rourke, Senior Vice President of Corporate Development at SUN Behavioral Health, Inc. SUN has leveraged Interactant’s scalability, rolling out the EHR throughout the company’s recent expansions in Kentucky and Delaware. “The software helps save time capturing and entering data, which allows doctors, nurses, and clinicians to spend more time delivering patient care,” Rourke added.
Now with over 4,000 behavioral health client locations, HCS has become the EHR of choice for these providers. HCS can consolidate and centralize an organization's information while offering highly specific functionality. The results are better care delivery and efficient operations that can scale easily for growing organizations.
HCS is a leading provider of an all-in-one healthcare information technology platform that spans electronic health records (EHR), revenue cycle management, financial management, mobility, and business intelligence. In use at over 5,000 LTACH, behavioral health, and senior living facilities, the Interactant platform helps multi-site providers deliver better quality and safety in care while increasing efficiencies and financial performance.
