What are the benefits to having a mental health practice management system?

Challenges of Paper Charting

Paper systems can be inefficient, especially as health care moves towards the ultimate goal of interoperability. On paper, providers have to grapple with many complex and changing guidelines, such as ICD-10, DSM-5, authorizations, etc. EHRs can automatically track these variables, improving client care, reducing billing denials, minimizing provider stress and increasing practice efficiency. 

Benefits of Electronic Systems

EHRs can help your organization become more efficient with practice management, chart management, and internal & external communication. They can transform time-consuming processes into much easier work flows. EHRs can improve client care by:

  • reducing errors
  • encouraging preventative care and chronic condition management
  • facilitating population-level health management
  • experience financial gains through revenue cycle management
  • involving clients in their own care
