Developed by Netsmart, Essentia EMR is an information management solution that caters to behavioral health agencies of all sizes. The system can be deployed in the cloud and also on premise. Essentia software features a quality electronic health records system (EHR) that captures patient data in real time right from assessment to treatment.
Netsmart technology is currently being used by more than 24,000 healthcare organizations across all 50 states. The specialties it caters to include Addiction treatment, Behavioral Health, Child and family services, Home health, hospice, private duty and palliative care, Intellectual and developmental disabilities, Long-term care and Public sector/public health.
Essentia has also partnered with DrFirst for their prescription tool. Essentia Connect allows clinicians to exchange health data with other EMR systems. The system further features a patient portal called Essentia Connect Patient Portal that allows patients to easily access their health information through the internet whenever they need.
The software allows clinicians to draft a complete care plan based on detailed reports of treatment objectives and graphical representation. Essentia also features a built-in business intelligence tool that allows health agencies to analyze the progress of health care programs and their business productivity. The system also comes complete with a financials package offering functionalities including claims processing, accounts payable, general ledger, accounts receivable, payroll and fixed assets.
Essentia EMR is ONC-ATCB certified and allows eligible providers to easily qualify Meaningful Use requirements and win government based incentives.
If you are a medical practice looking for an information management solution that caters to behavioral health agencies of all sizes, then this might just be the system you need!
Cons: Consistent failure. Netsmart support is almost as useless as their Essentia product.
Verdict: Would not recommend this steaming pile to my worst enemy.
