TheraManager Updates...


Dear Clients & Partners,


The past few months have been some of our busiest ever and have gone a long way to propel us towards our goal of being the premier Practice Management / Electronic Medical Records software company for Behavioral Health Practices....

The Details...


New Clients

As you know, TheraManager had our usual booth at this year's American Psychiatric Association trade show.  As a side note, it was a treat to see some of you at the show!

A nation-wide Tele-Psychiatry practice also presenting at the show reviewed all of the Practice Management / EMR software companies at the show and selected TheraManager

to be their EMR software partner.  We are currently training their 120 clinicians around

the country...


TheraManager clients continue to refer in more colleagues.  We've recently added more Psychiatrists in New Jersey and Oregon, another Psychologist in New Jersey, and another Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Georgia...


In addition to the above recent 'wins', our sales pipeline is growing faster than ever...



New EMR Screen

We've officially launched our new EMR screen.  Our development team wrote the new screen in Microsoft's .net technology, so it has an easy-to-use graphical user interface and it's easy for us to maintain.  The two most important new features are 1) the ability to turn any Microsoft Word document into an EMR template and 2) the integration of Digital Signature Pads.  The ability to convert MS Word documents into EMR templates expands the uses of our EMR to include any Patient/Client paperwork - treatment plans, progress notes, confidentiality agreements, etc.  The integration of Digital Signature Pads is a huge time-saver for Practices that run government programs and require Client/Patient/Guardian signatures.  Imagine never having to print/sign/scan/attach a document again; just sign it directly on the screen.  In addition, for those Practices that prescribe medications, you will soon be able to e-prescribe controlled substances (aka EPCS) within TheraManager. 


Call or email to arrange a date/time for a demo.   



The World is Racing to the Cloud

Gartner predicts that 1/2 of the world's applications and data will be on the Cloud within the next few years.  Dell highlights an interesting irony - the last few organizations that are not yet running on a cloud most often state that they are not doing so out of fear for their data and it's safety.  The irony, he points out, is that most of these people have a basic non-redundant computer system susceptible to theft, fire, flood, bad hard drives, etc.  In fact, top-of-the line cloud environments, like the one used by TheraManager (provided by OnRamp www.onr.com), provide a level of security, encryption, redundancy, and backups that an idividual medical practice would never achieve on it's own.


We've just passed the 50% point, so more TheraManager Practices are now operating in our Cloud than on local office servers, and more Practices are converting every month.




It's not new, but it is hot.

Perhaps it's the nation-wide shortage of Behavioral Health clinicians. 

Perhaps it's the availability and relative inexpensiveness of the technology. 

Perhaps it's the flood of new patients/clients with access to healthcare. 

Perhaps these three phenomenon have created a perfect storm!


While tele-health is hot in general, the applications in psychiatry, psychology, counseling, therapy, and social work seem endless - treating people living in rural areas, in prisons, in hospitals, in nursing homes, etc.


The insurance coverage varies state-by-state, but the adoption rates are increasing.

In addition to more states approving more cases, individuals are displaying a willingness to pay more out-of-pocket to avoid commuting costs and time, waiting room time, etc., etc.  TheraManager is currently implementing a HIPAA-compliant secure video technology with a partner company.  More to come soon - watch this space!


Here's an interesting article on the topic....
