Recognizing that the mental health and substance abuse providers it serves must implement a certified EHR by 2015, and consistent with its ongoing commitment to provide innovative, cost-effective solutions, NJAMHAA selected Qualifacts as its first EHR partner.
The decision to partner with Qualifacts was based on Qualifacts meeting four criteria: (1) proven success with electronic behavioral health record implementations across the country, (2) the ability to deliver a core New Jersey system that could be configured to meet each provider’s unique program needs, (3) experience and a track record of success in New Jersey, and (4) a collaborative implementation model that ensured members could get a true enterprise solution at a substantial costs savings versus what they would incur if they implemented an EHR independently.
"NJAMHAA's members face extraordinary challenges in attempting to meet the increasing needs of their consumers and to comply with state and federal regulations. By working collaboratively, seeking guidance and support from NJAMHAA and finding the right technology solutions, they will be better equipped to respond to these challenges," said Debra Wentz, PhD, CEO of NJAMHAA. “Electronic Health Records will prove to be a money and time saver, while enabling our members to operate more efficiently and effectively."
June Noto, Director of NJAMHAA's Information Technology Project states, "Over the last several years, Qualifacts has been a very active member in our association's Technology Council. They have had numerous opportunities to demonstrate their software which has garnered the attention and interest of our provider members. We believe that an EHR collaborative provides cost saving opportunities for our members, and this seemed like the next logical step in assisting them.”
“Qualifacts is proud to partner with NJAMHAA in offering CareLogic to its members,” said David Klements, president and CEO of Qualifacts. “
