Join us live from Las Vegas, Nevada at the annual conference for The National Council for Behavioral Health. Our goal was to speak with presenters and guests. Eileen Joseph stopped by the media room to give us her thoughts on the most esteemed conference supporting our favorite sector of healthcare: Behavioral Health. Eileen discusses what CareLink Community Support Services offers their client population, what their technology needs are, and how the ever changing paradigm of mental health is affecting their organization.
Join us for a live interview with Dr. Aaron Janssen at The National Council for Behavioral Health’s annual conference: NatCon16. Dr. Janssen stopped by the media room to discuss his work, the passion he has for working with children and families, and his presentation on Gender Variant Youth for the conference.
Choosing the right behavioral health EHR is one of the most important decisions a mental health organization will make.
Before you dive into purchasing the software that will be running your practice make sure the vendor providing the demo is not really a magician. In our time spent only selling mental health EHRs, we have done demos exactly as trained by the creators of the products. We found out later this was horrendously misleading and when we started doing demonstrations of the products exactly as they worked, sales of these EHRs slowed down to a trickle. As they should.
everythingEHR has been reviewing behavioral health EHRs for the past few years. Many of our clients from mental health billers to behavioral health providers have come to rely on our EHR knowledge to help them during the often painful process of selecting a system that will ultimately run their practice. We have demoed more than forty behavioral health EHRs. Some are 100% mental health focused and others serve many sectors of health care and include a behavioral health component. We found that the process of vetting EHR vendors can and should be a time-consuming journey but often filled with missteps and some landmines. Our clients always report a serious reduction in anxiety by having one of our advisers join them on each and every demo.
It is so easy to slip into negative thinking when walking the dusty trail of adopting an Electronic Health Records (EHR) system within your behavioral healthcare practice. But this type of thinking and talking can actually result in poorer self-esteem in the workplace and reduce performance during this often challenging time of change.
There is a large and growing body of research on the measurable impact a positive mind-set has on workplace satisfaction and performance. At a minimum, these findings suggest that workplace enthusiasm – and, on the flip side, negativity – impact organizational productivity.
Transforming the Leader/Transformational Leadership
Organizational leaders during a massive technological overhaul – such as adopting a new EHR – are asked to show more composure than perhaps ever before in the workplace. Adoption of a new system requires patience to minimize the impact of uncertainty among coworkers amidst the already existing day-to-day demands of your practice.
What a boon for us to interview Michael Myles, CEO of Active Marketing. His firm is the only strategic marketing firm that caters exclusively to Behavioral Health. It’s our pleasure to work directly with his organization. Michael and our host, Kristin Walker, could have talked for hours. The intel given on this show is invaluable. Michael shared some information about the show in the Q & A below but you’ll have to listen in for the GOLD!
HIPAA, HITECH, Omnibus, PCI regulations – these are words that can strike fear into the heart of any Behavioral Health organization. They don’t need to as we found after speaking with our guest today on Mental Health News Radio. We sat down with Marc Haskelson, the President and CEO of Compliancy Group, to find out how easy compliance can be.

Because of the lack of information about this type of abuse, we are proud to further the available resources. Julie is a nationally recognized speaker on this topic and she does provide listings in this article for additional resources.
One of the fastest growing EHRs in the Behavioral Health market is EHR YOUR WAY. We’ve had the pleasure of working with their team for over a year and as you’ll hear on the show, it has been eye opening for our consulting group. With Behavioral Health finally getting the recognition it deserves, we are seeing an explosion of new technology vendors. We were able to glue our guest, Jay Lacny, to his chair for longer than 5 minutes and discuss this exciting and innovative EHR, why they chose to focus on Behavioral Health, and (without giving away their secrets) why they’ve become so popular, so fast. If you are looking for advanced tools for Behavioral Health with affordable pricing, tune in to this show!
