Many behavioral health organizations (BHOs) are re-evaluating their current electronic health record (EHR) and vendors in order determine if they can continue to partner to meet the new administrative, clinical, and billing demands facing the behavioral health industry. The BHOs entering into the re-purchasing EHR market are more experienced technology buyers and are utilizing their experience to create a more stringent EHR vendor evaluation process. However, one factor that has not changed are the limited technology budgets within the behavioral health industry. The good news is that many of the cost drivers associated with EHR purchases are in the control of the BHO.
In this exclusive executive web briefing, Earl Lipphardt, Senior Director of Integrity House; John Raden, Senior Vice President of Strategies of Core Solutions; and Robert Capobianco, Vice President of Marketing at Core Solutions explored the typical cost drivers within a normal EHR purchase. During this discussion, they highlighted the pros and cons of these tradeoffs and provided real world examples of how other BHOs have managed these decisions.
