Buffalo, NY – Edgewater Health seeks to provide care for the whole person to the clients they serve in Gary and Northwest Indiana. After struggling with multiple EHR systems that didn’t fully meet their needs and couldn’t communicate across programs, they knew it was time for a change. Edgewater selected TenEleven Group’s electronic Clinical Record (eCR™) as their EHR because it’s able to work with all three of their programs – behavioral health, primary care, and medication dispensing.
“We have long wanted to have a system that would do everything we needed – just one platform for our three major service areas; behavioral health care, primary care and medication assisted treatment. There’s only a few systems that meet this need, so that’s why it was one of the first things that attracted me to TenEleven,” said Danita Johnson Hughes, President and CEO of Edgewater Health.
With their behavioral health, primary care, and medication dispensing programs, Edgewater Health offers a wide variety of services to the adults and children in their community. Their provided services generate a large amount of data and a multitude of state reporting requirements. When vetting EHR systems, Hughes was drawn to TenEleven because of their expansive reporting capabilities and their error-preventing functionality.
“With Value-Based Payments gaining so much traction in behavioral health, data collection and reporting is more important than ever. TenEleven makes it easy to pull data out of eCR™ and run reports on it,” said Alex Alexander, CEO of TenEleven Group. “Edgewater Health has an important responsibility to their community, and TenEleven will help them continue to meet that responsibility while taking every opportunity for improvement.”
Hughes also spoke about her anticipated transition to value based payments, “I have been hesitant to negotiate value based contracts with payers, because I haven’t had the data packages I need to show the great outcomes I know we achieve,” Hughes said. “With TenEleven, I will have the information I need to be able to do that.”
