Pivoting your agency to work in a connected healthcare environment can feel like walking around in the dark with no signposts. In this session, we’ll provide you with steps to take and illuminate your understanding of what it means to use Certified Electronic Health Record Technology (CEHRT) to connect with a RHIO in New York State. Connecting with a RHIO brings an agency features like emergency department alerts, the ability to send and retrieve an individual’s health record, and the ability to contribute valuable consumer data to your performing provider system. Join us to hear tips from Bailey House, an agency that has been in the trenches working on this process with its Electronic Health Record (EHR) partner, Foothold Technology. You’ll learn about what organizational changes the agency has made, how it updated its EHR to collect new data sets, and what the agency is planning to do in the future. We’ll also share developments on how EHRs are updating their software to make sure behavioral healthcare agencies are ready to participate in the next generation healthcare system.
