Optimize Workflow by Addressing the Successes and Challenges of Integrating Electronic Health Records

June 4, 2018

1:00pm- 2:30pm EST

Behavioral health providers face unique challenges as they adopt electronic health records systems (EHRs) and participate in health information exchange (HIE). The use of technology across healthcare organizations is fragmented, creating challenges to communicating pertinent patient health information between providers. The integration of EHRs allows for the automation of workflows, reduced staff time, communication of critical information between providers and standardizing treatment. Communication between organizations and facilities is enhanced via a secured database which provide real-time communication. This webinar will provide best practices for the integration of EHRs to automate and streamline provider workflow.  

After this webinar, participants will learn to:
  • Practical tools for data sharing and communication between behavioral health and primary care settings to improve quality of services;
  • Methods to implement or enhance an integrated electronic health record within an organization;
  • Strategies for an optimum workflow between staff of various roles;
  • Key lessons learned from one provider on how changing utilization of the EHR improved outcomes.

  • Kathy Dettling, MA, LLP, Consultant, SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions; Ms. Dettling has led and manged electronic health record vendor selections and implementations for twenty years.

  • Renan Llanes, Chief Information Officer, Citrus Health (Cohort VIII Grantee).  Mr. Llanes is the internal designer for IT applications and electronic medical records for a healthcare system that is both an FQHC and CMH. 

  • Jeff Chang, CEO, PCE Systems, vendor for ST Clair CMH (Cohort VIII Cohort VIII Grantee). Mr. Chang is the lead developer for the development of a primary care module embedded in a behavioral health electronic medical record in use by numerous PBHCI and non-grant integrated care sites.
