Benefits of Customizable Reporting Using EMR Software

Many currently available EMR software programs offer an array of the most commonly requested reports. However, that may not be sufficient for the way that you operate and fund your facility and care for your patients.

Standard reporting offered by general EMR software may include:

  • Referral Statistics
  • Admission/Discharge Dates
  • Patient Census
  • Employee Caseload
  • Billing Data

For some practices, this may be enough, but the ability to customize reporting to your specific needs can offer significant advantages. By creating custom reports, you can analyze or even combine data in useful and revealing ways to identify areas where your practice could improve.

For example:

  • Do patients referred from a specific agency have a higher than average number of missed appointments?
  • Are specific courses of treatment more effective within your client census than others?
  • Which of your internal practitioners seem to have the lowest rate of patient relapse?

There are limitless options available for customizing the reporting you receive or when you receive it. Set reporting for weekly, monthly or quarterly to analyze trends, detect patterns or address problem areas. Quickly pull up accurate data requested by health agencies or insurance providers.

Why Choose a Specialty EMR?

Think all EMR systems are the same? Think again. Electronic medical records software can cover a broad range of specialties from acute care to urology. It’s critical to choose EMR software that takes into account the specific needs of your practice and your clients.

Substance Abuse, Behavioral Health, and Mental Health Practice

These specialties, more so than many others, work within a web of service providers and regulations. You may work with counselors, general practitioners and possibly the legal system. You’ll need to coordinate complex treatment plans, track prescribed medications and of course payables, receivables, appointments, and referrals.

Customization of Standard Systems

Many vendors provide the option of customizing their EMR software to accommodate the specific needs of your practice or facility. However, doing so leaves open the possibility of critical data falling through the cracks if they’re not familiar with substance abuse, behavioral health, or mental health. Data points common to substance abuse treatment, such as screenings, assessments, treatment plans, clinical notes, and psych evaluations are not standard in every specialty. It’s important to work with an EMR software provider who knows your business.

Risk of Using the Wrong EMR System

Electronic medical record (EMR) solutions that don’t cater specifically to behavioral health, mental health, and substance abuse treatment providers carry the risk of noncompliance. While all medical practices and facilities must comply with HIPAA, JCAHO and other state and federal regulations, substance abuse and mental health providers may be subject to additional regulation. Failure to conform to these standards can lead to fines, penalties, and licensure issues. Additionally, many providers in this specialty rely on grants for part of their funding or in partnership with researchers, making accurate record tracking even more vital.

Recognizing Great Customer Service

“If not for Anthony’s perseverance and integrity, I would not be able to work once the original CAM was phased out.  Anthony re-opened my ticket 2-3 times in the process to ensure I was able to get CAM 2 running proficiently.

Anthony is a picture of what every company strives for in an employee…..  dedicated, helpful, respectful, professional, and honest.

It is my hope that you recognize Anthony for being a perfect model for excellent customer service and support.”
