What’s with all the sunflowers?
by Leigh-Ann Renz, 7.21.13
We’re often asked: “What’s with all the sunflowers?”; and the simple answer is that our clients deal with some really heavy stuff. In mental & behavioral health, you have to get up close and personal, on a daily basis, to some of the most intense and difficult aspects of life. When we created PIMSY in 2007, the other EHRs we checked out looked cold, clinical and sterile.
We wanted our software to have a lightness and freshness that would maybe lift our clients out of the drudgery of their day, even if just for a moment. We’re not just run of the mill software: PIMSY wasn’t patched together a few years ago in order to meet Meaningful Use requirements or hastily extrapolated from a larger medical system; it was painstaking designed with the user in mind, to be a great system, period. Our team is invested and dedicated, and we infuse heart and soul into every part of PIMSY.
PIMSY Staff Giving Back!
In addition to all of our hard work in the office, our staff also gives back to the local community. On April 27th, our Support Director, Judy and her right-hand woman, Kim, participated in a walk to End Lupus Now (in the rain!). That same weekend, Marketing Director Leigh-Ann and Office Manager / HIPAA Compliance Officer Donna took part in a 1K Fun Walk for KARE, a local organization fighting hard to end child abuse and provide help for families affected by it.
Yes, we’re all just as busy as the next person, but we believe that local service is important to good mental health, not just at our jobs, but also in the communities that support and sustain us. We’ll be featuring more community involvement in upcoming newsletters from time to time, because…we wear our sunflowers on our sleeves!
“Thanks for all of the support that you and your staff have offered. Your endless intervention with the insurance companies on our behalf has been truly impressive and incredibly helpful. You have treated us as if we are your only customer. I realize that this must be a very busy time for you [5010 transition] and greatly appreciate your commitment to our practice.” ~ Dr. Michelle Rinella, Business Owner
