Eastern Washington EMR Product Evaluation

Jerry Schneider and Jeanette Griffin are on-site this week with a large mental health provider in Eastern Washington, helping them evaluate EMR (electronic medical record) software and consulting on best practices for using a data warehouse to export data to their RSN (Washington State Regional Support Network). They will be working with provider staff to evaluate how well CoCentrix’s (UNI/CARE) latest EMR product will meet their needs.

JCS has created and helped fine tune data warehouses for several customers to make the exporting of data to RSNs and other payers easier and provide a more useful reporting platform.

Netsmart Connections 2014 attended by Jeanette, Jerry, and Shayne

Jeanette Griffin, Jerry Schneider, and Shayne Spratt just returned from Connections 2014, the Netsmart/Avatar software conference in Anaheim, California. No pun intended, many "connections" were made there with Netsmart customers as well as officers and support within Netsmart itself.

The conference provided many interesting insights into the direction NetSmart believes the industry is headed. Netsmart presented extensive development on a care management product that sits above the traditional behavioral health direct care model and treatment plan.  Netsmart is also working to expand data shared with HIE (Heath Information Exchanges) and is always looking for ways to improve experiences for clinical providers and consumers of behavioral health services. Some hard questions were asked, and it seems Avatar is improving issues with data conversion customers have experienced in the past.

JCS intends to continue providing electronic medical record, state reporting, HIPAA standard transactions, and data warehouse support to agencies converting to Avatar (Netsmart), CCP (CoCENTRIX, formerly UnicareSys), Psychconsult (Askesis), as their vendor of choice.  JCS also continues to support agencies using Netsmart's MIS (formerly CMHC Systems, Inc.) software as they have for over 20 years.

Collabosphere 2014 - Kelly & Jeanette

Jeanette and Kelly attended the Central Desktop annual collaboration conference on September 9, 2014 in Long Beach, CA.  Although Collabosphere was shorter this year than last, the single day of events was jam packed with helpful hints.  The annual event provided opportunities to network with project managers, implementation specialists, and forward-thinking collaborators similar to those on the Jet Computer Support team.
