An Interview with John Hallock and Lindsey Phillips of CareCloud

carecloud-logo-whiteWhy should healthcare providers and organizations care about using an EHR that is Meaningful Use certified?  It speaks to the longevity of a software vendor that they would go through the rigors of certification. Our hats are off to any EHR company that passes certification.  It is a rigorous task and very expensive. Consumers should peel back those layers and make sure what was done to the product isn’t “just enough” to pass.  Check out our CEO’s article on the CareCloud website here about the trials and tribulations of Behavioral Health EHRs.blog-talk-radio

Is your Behavioral Health EHR’s meaningful use certification meaningful?

There are about 2,500 electronic health record systems. There are quite a few that specialize in behavioral health and others that cover just about any specialty but may include behavioral health. As a consultant to the EHR industry I have watched endless demos and received pricing that ranges from free to a sixty thousand dollar setup fee. Salespeople are a funny breed, especially those in the EHR industry. I spent about three years selling several EHR’s myself. What I found interesting is not what a consumer will find on Software Advice or Capterra. There is a lot of demo trickery, so buyer beware.

, KellenKellen Stover joins our team as our social media guru. Sometimes age makes a big difference when it comes to all things social media. Having grown up with a keyboard attached to his fingers, Kellen lends his technology skills to our radio show and podcast, Mental Health News Radio, and the EHR vendors that contract our firm to work on their business development initiatives.  

Kellen is our go-to person when technology gets the best of us.  We are not ashamed to admit that the calm demeanor you hear on our radio show is sometimes peppered with panicked looks, texts, and phone calls to Kellen if a guest or caller is having a technology challenge during the show. Patient, technology driven, and able to explain what he is doing when necessary and in a manner we can actually understand: this takes talent.
