Behavioral Health - Hospitals & Health Systems

Collaborative care that serves the physical and mental needs of your patients.

Keeping your community healthy means focusing on their mental health as well as their physical health. With MEDITECH, your care teams will have the tools they need to collaborate on intervention and support, while improving overall compliance and outcomes for behavioral health patients.

Our EHR delivers the integrated, specialized content required to address patients’ unique behavioral health needs--from emergency crisis interventions, integrated acute care evaluations, coordination with chronic disease management, and ambulatory services.

MEDITECH’s Behavioral Health solution includes:

  • Robust, Specialized Standard Content
  • Actionable, Real-Time Monitoring
  • Streamlined Care Coordination
  • Integrated Revenue Cycle

Robust, Specialized Standard Content

MEDITECH gives you in-depth standard content--such as screening tools for providers in the Emergency Department, acute, and ambulatory environments; documentation templates for easy, streamlined collection of clinical patient information; and integrated care plans for mental health issues. Clinicians can document assessments, interventions, medication administration, and patient progress towards goals for both individuals and groups at the point of care.

Actionable, Real-Time Monitoring

Surveillance status boards enable you to see relevant information and track your patients’ mental health risk factors--such as stress, chronic medical conditions, depression, or trauma. Surveillance capabilities allow you to closely monitor patients on restraint protocols as well as those at risk for suicide/violence, make well-informed care decisions, and take prompt action through ordering protocols. Use interprovider messaging to improve real-time communication with other clinicians, and share clinical data with inpatient and outpatient facilities through MEDITECH’s built-in system integration.

Streamlined Care Coordination

Ensure smooth transitions to the next level of care and better care team collaboration with MEDITECH’s universal discharge routine - with a single location for medication reconciliation, discharge instructions, and referrals. MEDITECH’s Case Management call-back and documentation features also safeguard against gaps in care and ensure that patients can understand instructions, medications, and next steps in the care process.

Integrated Revenue Cycle

Easily capture and update patient demographics, family contact data, insurance coverage, referral information, and diagnostic codes at the front-end. Our administrative tools will help you streamline scheduling for both inpatients and outpatients, and efficiently manage their medical records--including release of information and deficiencies.

Improve the collections process and lower your A/R days with proactive account follow-up capabilities, integrated charge capture, end-of-month billing, and consolidated patient statements. Smooth coordination of referrals and authorizations will also ensure that your organization receives timely, maximum reimbursements.
