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.
