Netsmart Releases White Paper: Improve Adoption, Care and Outcomes with Intuitive Electronic Health Record

Netsmart, the leading provider of clinical solutions for health and human services organizations nationwide, today announced availability of a white paper, “Improve Adoption, Care and Outcomes with Intuitive Electronic Health Record.” The white paper details the importance of an organization selecting the right electronic health record (EHR) for their needs. The white paper is available for download on the Netsmart website.

Today’s healthcare environment is rapidly evolving, driven by a focus on clinical quality, behavioral health and primary care integration, and outcomes/recovery-based care. This has led to an increasing need for EHRs in behavioral health that support integrated clinical data exchange across the care spectrum. Choosing the right EHR, one that enhances quality of care of consumers while increasing business and operational efficiencies, is key.

Netsmart is committed to providing health and human services providers with innovative technology and solutions that help improve outcomes and reduce costs. This white paper discusses how an innovative, intuitive EHR can help organizations provide coordinated care and improved patient outcomes.

Because user experience is essential to EHR adoption and productivity, Netsmart created its myAvatar solution, an intuitive and role-based, ONC-ATCB-certified EHR and practice management solution specific to the behavioral health community.

The myAvatar solution offers significant, exclusive benefits:

  • Maximum user efficiency – myAvatar software allows users to customize the desktop to their unique roles within the organization. This supports faster adoption of the system, reduces training time and encourages users to be up and running in less time by providing immediate access to the specific tools they need. These modifications can be easily made without custom programming or in-depth technical knowledge.
  • Improved user satisfaction – Because myAvatar software is so easily personalized, users have increased confidence in the product and can be more productive, leading to higher staff satisfaction and improved customer service.
  • More time caring for consumers – The easy-to-navigate user interface and role-based home views translate into less time navigating the system and more time providing and supporting consumer care.

“Leading your organization into the new era of accountable care is complex and requires strategic thinking and commitment by all members of your team,” said Michael Valentine, chief executive officer, Netsmart. “Selecting and implementing the right EHR for your organization is a key first step. The right EHR not only allows organizations to improve business efficiencies, but also provides a solid foundation for coordinated care and improving patient outcomes.”

Integral to the development of myAvatar and now an addition to all solution enhancements, Netsmart created a UX (user experience) team. The UX team is focused on workflow and usability, assuring that the Netsmart solution is an extension of the individual doing the work and capturing data when and where it should be captured as easily as possible. Success in usability is measured not only in reduction in keystrokes, mouse clicks and mouse sweeps, but also evaluations on length of time on task, number of errors eliminated, amount of training time, and self-reported ratings about ease of use.

Through a combination of innovative technology and cutting-edge solutions and services, Netsmart is leading the way to ensure health and human services providers have the tools they need to provide outstanding care to their consumers in an ever-evolving industry.

Additional white papers on other current industry topics of interest to health and human services providers are available for download on the Netsmart website.
