  • 1. Why you should demand it
    Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners' EMR system
  • 2. Electronic Medical Records
    There are at least 20-30 different types of EMR systems available.
    Cover every scope of Medicine / Healthcare / Information Technology / electronic Billing / electronic Prescriptions, etc.
    Support Small (single physician practice) to Large (multidimensional Hospital conglomerates) Organizations.
    Offer a variety of methodology such as stand-alone system, SaaS and Web-based / Web-driven support.
    Vary in range of finance / initial investment / maintenance plans and per-use.
    Vary in complexity / productivity / simplicity / practicality and expandability (supporting the projected volume growth)
  • 3. Psychotropic Medications in the geriatric population
    Need to be effectively monitored (incidence / weekly / monthly / quarterly).
    Need to address and meet regulatory guidelines, regulations and rules (FDA / Medicare/Medicaid / OBRA).
    Need to be documented, changed, titrated and altered for efficacy / regulatory guidelines.
    Need to be scrutinized for drug-drug interaction, side effects and dosing paradigms
    Need to address and effectively treat patient’s via measurable testing results, psychiatric evaluations and behavioral issues
  • 4. Nursing Homes
    Strict guidelines and regulations for psychiatric residents on ANY psychiatric medications.
    Adequate, proper and complete detailed documentations for any and all issues / medications / changes / testing / evaluations and maintenance pertaining to the psychiatric residents on psychiatric medications.
    Financial repercussions from failed / flagged / sited surveys.
    Organized charting and clear readable treatment plans / prescriptions / reviews / and notes.
  • 5. So why this specialized EMR system?
    To address specific benefits (practically, simply, accurately, efficiently and profitability).
    To provide specific technological advantages (UC, independence, congruity, accessibility, visibility, validity, security and productivity)
    To simplify
    Patient information processing
    Total view of the patients treatment history
    Coding: properly / accurately / safely
    Logs / Testing / Results / Scheduling / medication management
  • 6. Requirements and Billing
    Clear differentiations of the CPT codes available
    Valid and precise order of ICD-9/10 procedure codes
    Completion of the required information necessary to comply with the appropriate coding.
    Acceptable wording / phrasing / descriptions / assessments needed to match data collected / behaviors observed.
    Correct time values and assessment activities for proper revenue / billing.
    Chart accuracy / accessibility / relevance
  • 7. What are the differences between Psych-EMR and all others?
    More focused on necessary information, rather than so much superfluous data collection requirements
    More specific/specialized forms that provide a better work-flow methodology
    Independent from constant/needed internet connectivity
    Implements a BI type analysis via GUI driven Dashboard views.
    Smarter data analysis specific for the specialty
    Innovative technological implementations
  • 8. What really is the true value
    Aside from all listed and well documented values that dictate having any EMR or electronic record system implemented can provide.
    Accuracy for data needed to increase Medicare billing legitimately and without fear of an audit
    Availability and accuracy of the needed data for any type of audit to pass – Medicare / OBRA / State surveys / FDA
    Better reminder system for testing / GDR / re-initial evaluations and so much more.
  • 9. Value cont.
    Efficiency in gathering patient information and documentation, regardless of location, environment and accessibility
    Faster work flow for evaluation turn-around-time
    HIPPA compliant method of data dissemination and storage
    Easier method for peer-review and collaboration
