Three More Georgia Community Service Boards Select Netsmart as Technology Partner
Date:5/30/2013

(PRWEB) May 30, 2013

Netsmart today announced that three additional Community Service Boards (CSBs) in the state of Georgia have selected Netsmart as their knowledge and technology partner to help them enhance clinical care and maximize the efficiency of their business operations.

The three new additions to the Netsmart client community are Behavioral Health Services of South Georgia, the Community Service Board of Middle Georgia and the Albany Area Community Service Board. Netsmart already serves the DeKalb Community Service Board, Middle Flint Behavioral Healthcare and Pineland BHDD. Each of the CSBs provides comprehensive mental health, I/DD, child and adolescent, substance abuse, and addictive disease and prevention services.

The new Netsmart client CSBs all will use Netsmart’s myAvatar™ CareRecord™, which serves as a comprehensive, certified electronic health record (EHR) and features complete clinical and financial capabilities to support the delivery of coordinated care. Additional benefits include having multiple CSBs in the state on a common technology platform, facilitating integrated clinical information exchange and coordinated care between care providers and with other entities such as health information exchanges (HIEs).

The CSBs will also realize cost savings and protections by utilizing myAvatar in the secure, reliable Netsmart Plexus Cloud™ hosting environment. With Plexus Cloud hosting, Netsmart handles server maintenance, daily back-ups and updates to operating system, database and application software. This allows Netsmart clients to save money, reduce costly IT staff overtime and focus on providing quality care to consumers.

“We’re pleased to partner with three additional Georgia CSBs to help them provide quality, coordinated care with high levels of business efficiency,” said Michael Valentine, chief executive officer, Netsmart.

“We began our relationship with Netsmart more than 13 years ago, and the partnership we have formed continues to grow,” said June Dipolito, CEO of Pineland BHDD. “The Netsmart team understands our needs and the challenges we face daily. Netsmart solutions have helped us reduce redundancies within our agency and enabled us to effectively provide quality community-based services and fulfill our organizational mission.”

All six Netsmart client CSBs are members of the Georgia Association of Community Services Boards, Inc. (GACSB), which was established to lead in the development and operation of public disability services, and to advocate, initiate, and support actions designed to improve disability services in Georgia. Another key purpose of GACSB is to speak singularly in matters mutually involving and concerning community service boards in Georgia.

“I was very impressed with the professionalism and the efficiency of the Netsmart staff,” said Stefanie Jackson, CPA, chief financial officer, Behavioral Health Services of South Georgia. “We received excellent customer service care, and the sales staff came down to visit us several times and arranged numerous conference calls and webinars to ensure that all our needs were met. It was great to work with each of the staff members.”
