Morrison will lead the Netsmart clinical team in transforming  clinical care in behavioral health by focusing on evidence-based practice, recovery- and research-based care, coordinated care planning, and the integration of behavioral and primary care. Morrison brings a clinical perspective to the development of electronic health record (EHR) technology, which supports the Netsmart vision of "by clinicians for clinicians." With nearly 40 years of experience in the field of behavioral health, Morrison joins Netsmart from Centerstone, a private, not-for-profit mental health research and information technology company, where he served as chief executive officer for its well-known Centerstone Research Institute.

"I've always believed information technology can play a key role in revolutionizing the way healthcare is delivered," said Morrison. "Netsmart's experience, commitment to innovation, large client base, domain expertise, and industry leadership make it the one technology provider with the vision and resources to make this clinical impact a reality on a broad scale."

In addition to continuing to play a clinical leadership role at the national level, Morrison will lead the development of Netsmart solutions to match clinical workflows, incorporate evidence-based practices, promote integrated clinical data exchange across the continuum of care, increase organizational efficiencies, and improve patient care and outcomes.

He also will guide the company's national clinical and operational benchmarking service initiative that will leverage aggregate clinical and management data and best practices from across the Netsmart client base, enabling behavioral health providers across the country to enhance quality of care and improve operational efficiencies.

"We believe that our large, nationwide client base is the ideal platform for us to proliferate the use of evidence-based and proven clinical practices – and we believe that as the leader of our industry, we have an obligation to the communities we serve to make this happen," said Mike Valentine, CEO, Netsmart. "We are thrilled to have a proven thought leader like Denny with a track record of both discovery and practical implementation at the helm for this journey."

"Netsmart is committed to the leadership, innovation, focus and relationships needed to help its clients and the industry advance this important clinical agenda," said Morrison. "I'm pleased to join Netsmart and play a key role in this exciting evolution of care."
