Netsmart Releases White Paper: Rethinking Healthcare Integration
Date:11/26/2013

Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) November 26, 2013

Integrated healthcare combines physical and behavioral health services to address a spectrum of problems and help remove artificial barriers between body and mind. To expand on this topic, Netsmart today announced the availability of its latest white paper, “Rethinking Healthcare Integration: Implementing Virtual Integration of Behavioral and Physical Healthcare to Improve Outcomes.”

Co-authored by Netsmart’s Chief Clinical Officer Dennis Morrison, Ph.D., and Chief Medical Officer Ian Chuang, M.D., the white paper examines the opportunities and challenges of integrated care and the role virtual integration through Electronic Health Records (EHRs), Personal Health Records (PHRs) and Health Information Exchanges (HIEs) can play in making coordinated care more efficient and effective. “Rethinking Healthcare Integration” and other white papers on topics of interest to health and human services providers are available for download at no cost at http://www.ntst.com/whitepapers.

“Integrating physical and behavioral healthcare can help many persons get better, more complete care – especially the up to 70 percent who come to their primary care provider with behavioral health needs,” said Morrison. “The question is what’s the smartest, most economical and beneficial way to provide that care?”

“Virtual integration, through EHRs, HIEs, telehealth and other means, can increase accessibility to services, reduce costs and provide the means to treat the whole person,” said Chuang. “As we discuss in the white paper, innovations like these are the smart way forward in this new and constantly-evolving integrated healthcare environment.”

Netsmart also recently hosted a series of no-cost, clinically focused Web seminars for health and human services providers. The programs were based around the theme of technology within integrated care and presented by Netsmart subject matter experts and industry partners. Viewers can learn about the various opportunities for healthcare integration and hear strategies from real-world providers who are already achieving successes with these models. The Web seminars are available for viewing on demand at http://www.ntst.com/summerseries/.
