Any input on behavioral health EMRs? Looking for a web-based system for a small office. I know several systems claim to have that capability but psychiatry seems to just be an after thought.
You can get many request try to go for some small software companies they can get you good deals.

You are welcome to review our system. We have live web demos every Wednesday at noon CT. Visit our website to register (www.Sevocity.com, Resources and then See a Demo). We have several psychiatrists and also many mental health counselors with our Federally Qualified Health Centers. The weekly demo is general but we would be happy to follow-up with a more customized demo.
You may also want to check out Maryland Healthcare Commission's website. They did a good job of reviewing many EHRs and posting pricing and other information about the EHRs.
One last suggestion: while templating helps save time with any specialty, it is my understanding the psychiatry requires more text/free notes. You may want to make sure the solutions you look at allow you to use Dragon or other voice recognition for such notes.

Any psychiatrists or other behavioral health offices with hands on experience that care to comment?
Free Electronic Medical Record system — Practice Fusion — releases a psychiatric module for mental health professionals in advance of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) Annual Meeting in New Orleans.
Although not specific to behavioral health, Medisoft Clinical is very flexible in the way you can set it up. We can host it on the Internet for you. I would be glad to show you a demo. What challenges are you facing that other EMRs lack?

Medscribbler allows handwriting on a Tablet for inclusion into the progress note, there is also a built in transcriptionist management module built in. We have several psychriatrists using Medscribbler already.
We will be at the American Psychriatic Association meeting in New Orleans next week. There are 15,000 psychs going to be there but very few EMRs - because few are actually useable for psychriatrists -
Getting you there sooner!
Just like the thread accusing GE of going under because they were not at a conference, vendor attendance at a conference is no measure of the vendor or the applicability of their product to the attendees of the conference. Against my better judgement, we tried conferences again last year. Big waste of money and time. If most doctors knew how much the vendors paid to attend the conference they would rather see the $s put into development or support.

A few things to look at when your looking for an EMR
- Do not go with a small company, they are usually a one man show
- Sometimes the server will go down, make sure you plan ahead incase this happens
- What if the company goes under? Some web based companies will keep your information for up to 10 years if they go under or if you decide to walk away from the product
- Customer service is key if you have questions after a demo. If a product is as "user friendly" as they say it is then there would be no need to call customer service unless the system is down (some go down for at least a day).
- Ask about security, you want a web based company that has experience in development, physical therapy and business solutions. Most web-based companies have either just a developer or just a physical therapist creating the system which can make things complicated (you want an ALL around company). Some have back up servers in different sides of the country.
- With that said, check for a disaster recovery act, if they go under, you go down with them. This can happen (look at Katrina) only few companies were unable to keep business operations running because they had no plans.
- You will be charged for a start up fee and per PT, Clerical and PTA. Others charge per document, be aware of this cause it sounds good at first but can hurt you in the end, but this depends on how much business you do of course.
- 90% of web based companies say they have billing software, that is a bunch of crap. Some companies interface their product with reputable billing companies such as Billing Dynamix.
- Make sure that their documentation is in compliance with your states practice act .
- Last but not least, make sure its is easy to use! 90% of web-based companies are terrible, and you spend most of your time trying to figure it out. Look for crisp clean notes and a good user friendly scheduling.
Let me know if you have any other questions, and information about any particular web-based company.
