Certified EHR, HIE Connectivity, and the ability to coordinate care between State and Community cited as key drivers for Selection
Montgomery, Alabama (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
CoCENTRIX, a leading provider of coordinated care technology solutions to state Health and Human Services and community providers, announced today that the Alabama Department of Mental Health (ADMH) selected the CoCENTRIX Coordinated Care Platform (CoCENTRIXccp) as its state-wide platform to manage the Health Records and coordinate care within and amongst its four in-patient state-operated psychiatric hospitals.
CoCENTRIX is transitioning the hospitals' official records from paper-based to fully electronic, creating a common standard to automate their clinical, financial and administrative processes. The ONC-ACB certified CoCENTRIX Electronic Health Record (CoCENTRIXehr), an integral component of the CoCENTRIXccp, is being implemented at Mary Starke Harper Center (Geriatric), North Alabama Regional (Acute Care), Taylor Hardin Secure Medical (Forensic), and at the newly built Bryce Hospital (Extended and Acute Care). With fully integrated features from intake through after care planning, the CoCENTRIXehr enables ADMH clinicians to provide continuous improvement of care and treatment to those they serve within the entire continuum of care in the ADMH system.
Additionally, with the CoCENTRIXccp in place as the state-wide coordinated care platform, Alabama's psychiatric hospitals can share treatment and discharge plans amongst facilities and between community providers and other agencies across the continuum of care; easily exchange data with the Alabama Health Information Exchange; transition patients to the appropriate community provider or agency at the right time to ensure appropriate levels of care; and aggregate data to provide the necessary analytics to drive improved clinical outcomes and cost savings.
“As states continue to deal with increasing fiscal pressures, Alabama has invested in technology that will result in administrative and clinical cost savings, improved clinical outcomes, and ensure appropriate services are delivered to consumers transitioning back into the community,” stated Leigh Orlov, President of CoCENTRIX. “With the CoCENTRIXccp, Alabama can deliver an affordable discharge management solution that safely deinstitutionalizes and properly monitors the ongoing treatment of the individual –Including mobile technology that allows that individual to be an active participant in their recovery .”
