Netsmart Technologies Software Supports Shawnee Mental Health Center Integrated Mental Health and Primary Care Initiative
Date:11/3/2010

atient's vital signs and record all primary care services provided. A tracking report was also created with RADplus to allow the primary care staff to follow the patient's progress and outcomes over time. A care coordination letter is sent to a patient's primary care physician to inform them about the services provided by Shawnee to their patient.

"Our solutions enable the secure sharing of clinical information between mental health and primary care practitioners, which helps Shawnee Mental Health provide quality, fully-integrated care to their clients," said James L. Conway, chief executive officer, Netsmart Technologies. "As Shawnee Mental Health's technology partner, we're pleased to play a part in the success of this worthwhile, innovative project, which is having tangible positive results for the health of Shawnee's clients."

The Avatar software also lets Shawnee simplify and consolidate clinical, nursing and billing data both for primary care and mental health clients. Shawnee staff can also create and modify forms in the Avatar system; saving time and helping Shawnee maintain continuity and consistency in their processes.

The integrated care initiative was spurred in part by a study published in 2006 by the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors that indicated that, on average, people with severe mental illness die 25 years earlier than the general population. Many of the deaths are due to common conditions such as smoking-related diseases, obesity, heart disease and diabetes.

In response to this alarming trend, Shawnee Mental Health Center applied for and received a $500,000 four-year grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administrations (SAMHSA) to enhance a program that had been established earlier through a grant from The Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati to provide primary healthcare services to Shawnee Mental Health Center clients with severe mental illnesses.
