The IBHIS will be a state-of-the-art solution consistent with LACDMH's requirements to support multiple simultaneous users and interface with several existing and planned County information systems. The IBHIS will also enable the demonstration of Meaningful Use of a Certified Electronic Health Record (EHR), creating an opportunity to pursue incentive payments and avoid penalties outlined under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

The overall term of the agreement is approximately 11 years with a total contract sum of $93 million.

"We are excited that the Board of Supervisors has approved this agreement with Netsmart," said LACDMH Director Marvin Southard, D.S.W. "This will allow us to apply the most advanced technology to support the work and partnerships that create hope, wellness and recovery in the lives of clients and their families."

The IBHIS will be hosted by Netsmart in its SSAE16-Certified data center with full redundancy, security, back-up and system reliability.

"This is one of the rare opportunities in our industry for a client and a supplier to create something that truly challenges the 'status quo' and transforms the way care is delivered," stated Mi
