Behavioral Health EHRs: The New Model for Integrated Care Technology

Valant_logo_square_white

Our guest today on Mental Health News Radio is Brook West, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Valant — one of the leading Behavioral Health EHRs. We’ve enjoyed a long relationship with the Valant team even visiting their corporate office in downtown Seattle in 2014.

As the Behavioral Health market moves toward direct integration with primary care we turn our focus toward electronic health record software vendors that are already using new technology to deliver solutions. Vendors that have superior credibility and credentials in Behavioral Health, attract quality leadership, and possess an unparalleled infrastructure. Our listeners know that Behavioral Health is our passion. Technology designed by the right organizations have a direct effect on mental health providers and their ability to deliver patient care. 

Join Brook West and our host, Kristin Sunanta Walker, as they discuss where Valant is headed and how their EHR solution is paving an entirely new road for Behavioral Health organizations.

The Short List: Narrowing the scope of your Behavioral Health EHR search

shortlistAs a mental and behavioral healthcare practice ready to adopt or expand a paperless system, you might find yourself in new territory without a map.

While there is no one perfect catchall, forming a shortlist of vendors depends on understanding how important features of Electronic Health Record (EHR) technology can meet the needs of your workplace. Assessing your needs, knowing what you are looking for, and being in the know about key features that systems offer saves you valuable time, energy – and in the long run – cost. The features listed below provide a good starting point in leading you in the right direction to find the EHR your practice needs.  We are also a phone call or email away if you would like a guide through this process. 

Credibility: Who are the founding members of the organization? Are they mental health providers that have created software that runs their own successful mental health agencies? Would the CEO or President be an invited speaker at a Behavioral Health conference to discuss something other than technology? What kind of contributions have the founding members created for Behavioral Health? Are they the face of the company? Can you find their staff on LinkedIn with a multitude of and varied experience in the field of Behavioral Health? 

Billing System: A billing system that focuses on easy setup for direct billing to many payers within the application but also offers built-in integration with clearinghouses for payment and eligibility checking so you spend less time in clearinghouse portals to process your billing. EHRs that have direct links to databases that house every insurance payers address, phone numbers, etc. which reduces the amount of time your practice needs to spend setting up the system, as well as, human error.  EHRs with tools that show you as a provider what your reimbursement rates should be across multiple insurance payers.

Behavioral Health Compliance: An Interview with Theresa Wray, LMFT
