Technology is changing the world around us. An example? Is there anyone who doesn’t know “Alexa?” Would it surprise you to know that Alexa is only five years old? Very quickly and fairly inexpensively, with utilization of the Amazon Echo, more and more homes are becoming “smart.” From, “Alexa, play my favorite songs” to “Alexa, turn on the kitchen lights,” automation is changing the way we live.
Although the greater majority of behavioral health facilities are using some type of EHR system, many are still using pen a paper to preserve the client healthcare record. Those facilities who implemented an EHR system more than three years ago might find that their current system is already antiquated. Consider the changes in compliance and subsequent workflows that occur each year. Your present system, if not up-to-date, may have become a hindrance more than a help. So it makes sense to do a review and comparison of your present system because there are better systems available and the cost is very comparable.
