EHR and practice management for mental / behavioral health

PIMSY Canada EHR

PIMSY Canada was created when Canadian clinicians starting coming to us, asking if our mental health EHR was available for their needs. While PIMSY’s enterprise-level functionality has been serving providers in the US since 2007, we’d never really considered what it might take to work in Canada, and started exploring the possibility.

We quickly realized that several changes would be needed to our flagship EHR and implemented the following:

// PIMSY Canada is PHIPA &  PIEDA compliant; all of the data resides in-country, on Microsoft Azure servers.

// The program utilizes the Canadian format of demographic details, such as address.

// Canadian clinicians require a more nuanced, robust wait list to maximize their publicly funded health services. We greatly enhanced our wait list capabilities, and this feature comes standard in the system.

// PIMSY Canada EHR is driven by the clients’ national identification number, which is the primary identification in Canadian healthcare.
