State of Mississippi 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 Mississippi Department of Mental Health selected the CCP Coordinated Care Platform as the solution for management of health records and coordination of care within and among their state behavioral health programs as well as centers and programs dedicated to the care of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).

The CCP is currently supporting the Mississippi State Hospital in Whitfield and the North Mississippi State Hospital in Tupelo. This engagement expands the CCP to behavioral health programs at two more state hospitals as well as the Specialized Treatment Facility and the Central Mississippi Residential Center. Supporting related centers and programs statewide, an additional six facilities with IDD programs will also utilize the ONC-ACB certified CCP, including several regional centers, the Ellisville State School and the Mississippi Adolescent Center.

Overall, the CCP will provide Mississippi behavioral health and IDD programs with person-centric and integrated EHR and case management, enabling all the programs to share a common platform, facilitating coordinated care for and transition of individuals to community-based programs. These vital components for coordinating care within and between programs also provide powerful analytics tools to meet the State’s reporting needs as well as Federal requirements for Meaningful Use of electronic health records.

Acting as a central point of access, in addition to standardizing interfaces with ancillary systems, the CCP will also provide centralized back-up and security and improve disaster recovery to ensure business continuity. Added James Dunaway, Chief Information Officer, “the [CCP] will allow us to centralize the data for our programs, eliminating duplication of data and eliminating the need for multiple local databases.” Dunaway continued, “This means that our programs will have centralized access to the system and the files will be preserved and accessible even in the event of a disaster in the region.”
