Netsmart launches Netsmart Primary Care Module
Aug 23, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Netsmart Technologies, a provider of clinical solutions for health and human services organizations, has launched Netsmart Primary Care Module, which unites behavioral health with primary care services in a team-based, integrated model of care.
"We have to 'put the head back on the body' and address patients' physical and mental health conditions equally," said Michael Valentine, CEO, Netsmart. The advent of accountable care and focus on patient-centered medical homes brings the opportunity to utilize integrated approaches to treating the body and mind. Our Primary Care Module equips health and human services providers to deliver a high quality, comprehensive, integrated model of care."
Netsmart's Primary Care Module is an integrated solution that incorporates a person's entire medical ecosystem for a holistic approach to care. Providers in behavioral health, addiction services, social services and public health can share authorized clinical data with a person's primary care provider, and vice versa, in a single, integrated care record. Each provider involved in the care process can view the patient's full medical record in their own chosen "point of view," including medical history, medications and other key attributes as they diagnose and develop treatment plans, the company said.
The Primary Care Module works with Netsmart's myAvatar, TIER and myEvolv CareRecord Solutions, with both primary care and behavioral health information residing in the same, integrated CareRecord. The module includes a complete, intuitive primary care office visit workflow delivered with seamless integration between the CareRecord desktop user interface and iPad-based Primary Care Office Visit workflow, including an integrated treatment model for all services. Clinicians can easily document reason for visit, patient/family histories, collect vitals, update allergies, prescribe medications and include all details of the office visit with relevant behavioral health information available as part of office visit workflow. Documentation is completed following evidence-based practice guidelines, the company added.
"As the industry moves toward pay-for-performance models and reimbursements based on care quality and improved outcomes, having this level of information in a single integrated solution helps providers fulfill their missions to improve the of individuals and ultimately, broader populations," said Valentine.
