Leveraging Next Generation EHR Technology To Increase Productivity & Improve Client Care: Integrity House & OPEN MINDS Executive Web Briefing


GETTYSBURG, Pa., May 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Improving the "value" of services is a critical strategic challenge for executive teams of behavioral health organizations. And one essential approach to improving value is using an organization's EHR to increase productivity and better manage client care.

How can your provider organization accomplish that? Join the team at OPEN MINDS and Core Solutions for a 'how to' case study presentation by Earl Lipphardt, the Senior Director of Integrity House, the largest addiction treatment organization in the state of New Jersey, and Ravi Ganesan, President of Core Solutions. This free executive web briefing, "Using Your EHR To Connect With Clients & Payers For Better Value" is scheduled for May 29 at 2:00 PM EDT. The case study will cover three critical issues:

  • Creating an organizational roadmap for better value – in improved care and decreased cost
  • Developing a phased approach to EHR implementation and optimization
  • The value realized by Integrity House from EHR optimization

"Like many organizations in our industry, Integrity House found themselves struggling with older EHR technology that required duplicative input, multiple processes, and manual 'workarounds' for all of their various service lines," said Monica E. Oss, Chief Executive Officer at OPEN MINDS. "This approach limited organizational resources, performance levels, and profitability potential. By making the strategic move to implement new EHR technology, Integrity House was able to reengineer their internal processes – use one enterprise system organization-wide – and maximize efficiency and profitability."
