    The Origins of PIMSY The Origins of PIMSY Document Transcript

    • Jackson County Psychological Services In 2007, Jackson County Psychological Services (JCPS) contacted Smoky Mountain Information Systems, Inc (SMIS) because they weren’t happy with the EMR they were using: it was inefficient and not meeting their needs. They asked SMIS to create a new system, from scratch, to their specifications. They wanted a program that was truly designed for mental & behavioral health, a true mental health EMR. Our lead developers rose to the challenge and engineered a comprehensive, user-friendly practice management system/EMR, based on the JCPS wish list: PIMSY. Six years later, JCPS is still a satisfied PIMSY EMR client and is using the system to successfully grow their business: they’ve expanded from 30 users to over 100. “We are now functioning at a 50% faster recovery rate for money and a 50% lower denial rate. You should really give SMIS time to demonstrate PIMSY for you personally.” (Kim Turpin, JCPS) After building PIMSY, we realized that there must be other practices out there looking specifically for a mental and behavioral health EMR and decided to try and match these practices with our incredible product. We put the word out and found plenty of demand in the market. As our client list grew, so did the system. Today, PIMSY EMR is keeping up with the ever-changing landscape of HIT (health information technology) and government regulation. In 2011, PIMSY Platinum 5.0 was ONC-ATCB Meaningful Use certified by the Drummond Group and qualifies for the ARRA HITECH program. We now offer 4 different tiers of PIMSY, providing a level of functionality and price to meet our clients’ diverse needs and budgets. We offer comprehensive, superior training and support, included in the price, for which we are constantly receiving positive feedback. “For years, we were forced to use a very clumsy and rudimentary medical record system. We asked SMIS to design a new electronic medical record system that fits our needs, and it has been great. PIMSY is much more userfriendly, and it currently performs a lot of the tracking and notification requirements that we needed. It makes notes easier and faster; you can access anything you need efficiently and quickly...the PIMSY staff have also been very attentive to our needs as far as maintenance and development. I would recommend PIMSY in the strongest terms.” (Raymond Turpin, JCPS) PIMSY EMR continues to evolve based on the needs and suggestions of our clients, and SMIS continues to add new features and functionality. What started as a project to fulfill a wish list has developed into an enterprise level, comprehensive and flexible product that seamlessly combines a practice management system with electronic medical records.
