Why We Become Therapists and How to Remain One: Tips for Overcoming Burnout and Malcontent

freedom-of-soulI remember the day I knew I would have a career in the helping field: It was a day like any other in first grade. As I stood in line with all my classmates, our janitor, Mr. Johnson, walked past. His familiar gimp accompanied him, as it always did, with one leg lagging behind him while the opposite arm swayed oddly.

To my dismay, the entire class snickered and called out insults, which—right or wrong—was the popular response by those around me. However, being the empath I am, I just sank inside. A pit the size of a kickball grew in my stomach and I just had to do something to ease his pain. Not having the tools then that I have now, I didn’t know what else to do. So I waved, smiled. A simple token of kindness that would foretell my future as a therapist. I knew then that I could not tolerate human suffering and that I had a gift within me to help ease it.

Behavioral Health Meaningful Use: Just Who Is THE Expert?

DrFrederickDuFourWe have looked long and hard for meaningful use experts in the Behavioral Health field.  They are hard to come by.  We got lucky partnering with The Compliancy Group.  They are THE HIPAA experts when it comes to the mental health field but where could we find someone with the proper credentials for Meaningful Use?  It was going to take someone special and, finally, we found him.

Last month we welcomed Dr. Frederick DuFour to the everythingEHR team.  We are proud to share his knowledge and expertise with our providers and the Behavioral Health EHR vendors we support.

Dr. DuFour will be hosting a series of Webinars for The Samaritan Institute, our supported EHR vendors, and everythingEHR on Meaningful Use and the specific and unique constraints on Behavioral Health providers.

How Academic Institutions Benefit from Adopting Behavioral Health EHRs

Tools for tomorrow’s workplace today

Academic institutions that offer programs for psychiatry and psychology students need to invest in behavioral health EHR software.  They want to offer their students the best software tools as well as the opportunity to step into the workforce ahead of their peers.  With training in sophisticated software applications these future leaders in behavioral health are better equipped to focus on patient care because they can capitalize on the growing trend to incorporate electronic health records (EHR) into clinical operations.

Many private practices in both the mental health and medical fields have made the transition from paper filing to EHR technology in recent years.  According to the American Psychological Association (APA) health care providers are able to tap into long-term cost savings that enhance office efficiency and make it easier to collect more accurate patient information.  But more importantly, EHRs enable communication across practice settings and facilitate interaction among healthcare professionals.
