State of Alabama Department of Mental Health Selects the Coordinated Care Platform

Stone Mountain, GA — Harris Coordinated Care Solutions, a leading provider of electronic health record, practice management and revenue cycle management technology to Health and Human Services and community providers, announced today that the Alabama Department of Mental Health (ADMH) selected the CCP Coordinated Care Platform as its statewide platform to manage health records and coordinate care within and among its four in-patient, state-operated psychiatric hospitals.

The ONC-ACB certified CCP is being implemented at the Mary Starke Harper Center (Geriatric), North Alabama Regional (Acute Care) and Taylor Hardin Secure Medical (Forensic) facilities as well as the newly built Bryce Hospital (Extended and Acute Care). As part of the implementation, Harris is transitioning the hospitals’ official paper records to electronic files, creating a common standard to automate ADMH’s clinical, financial and administrative processes.

With fully integrated features from intake and registration through after-care planning, the CCP EHR will enable Alabama clinicians to provide continuous improvement of care and treatment to those they serve within the entire continuum of care in the ADMH system. Using the CCP as their statewide coordinated care platform, Alabama’s psychiatric hospitals can also transition patients to the appropriate community provider or agency at the right time to ensure appropriate levels of care.

Providing health care interoperability as well, the CCP will additionally enable the ADMH to share treatment and discharge plans among facilities and between community providers and other agencies across the continuum of care along with securely exchanging data with the Alabama Health Information Exchange (HIE). For business intelligence, the Coordinated Care Platform also provides aggregate data for the necessary analytics to drive improved clinical outcomes and cost savings for the ADMH.
