DSS Market Expertise: Behavioral Health Hospitals

Behavioral health medical facilities have long been a separate, but key entity in the overall well-being and care for patients. However, the technology to support the necessary integration has been a secondary effort. Bridging the information gap between primary care and behavioral care providers requires the deployment of EHR technology that enables clinical data sharing and integrates seamlessly with mental health software. The successful integration of behavioral health services into the broader healthcare continuum can have a positive impact on care quality, costs and outcomes.

DSS is the developer of a suite of mental health solutions that enable providers to create and manage mental health treatment plans for patients. The solutions, which have been integrated with the VA’s VistA EHR technology, can also be integrated into non-VistA EHR technology without disruption to daily clinical workflows. The software automates the process of producing accurate, consistent and intra-disciplinary mental health treatment plans.
