Behavioral Health

Healthcare reform has expanded Medicare and Medicaid coverage, and increased the number of people covered by private health insurance. The resulting changes in reimbursement are not only affecting patients' ability to seek treatment but also providers' ability to deliver these services. Our EHR and practice management solutions for behavioral and mental health enable you to keep up, by allowing you to freely create content, adopt and adapt workflows, and build reports—without a partner.

Get in touch with Gary

The documentation process has greatly improved from our old paper system, which had our staff all over the place trying to figure out where to input data and where to find what they need. Now, they go into the system, quickly see where information belongs, input it easily, and get back to patient care.
