Which Behavioral Health EHR Does Your Practice Deserve?


We were recently asked to describe the moment in our personal journey into the world of behavioral health electronic health record software and record cycle management where we stopped simply selling and became true provider advocates.  

How did this happen?  

Why did this happen?

In our research it had become apparent that the behavioral healthcare market was not likely to be the most profitable.  As a matter of fact we learned that many EHR vendors avoid serving this community entirely.  Although there may be many reasons, one obvious factor is that it’s patients may not be among the wealthiest of the patient communities.  In fact, insurance reimbursements are lower than many other segments.  Mental health advocates feel that the rules and regulations they must follow are often stringent and highly-regulated.  It is definitely a niche market.

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
