Tools for Human Service Providers
“Make sure that you always have the right tools for the job.
It’s no use trying to eat a steak with a teaspoon, and a straw.”
― Anthony T. Hincks
The adoption of EHR software is a major contributor to Behavioral Healthcare transformation in the country. It not only improves productivity and sustainability in the field but more importantly, it is essential for patient care and safety. Integrating the right product for your agency is key to standing head and shoulders above the curve. In my thirty plus years of human service, I have yet to visit a social service agency that did not take pride in their agency and the work they do! In fact, most agencies team members would start off their conversations like this, “we do things differently, we care, big time!” The message is always similar, and extremely prideful in the work they do.
People are attracted to human service primarily for the good they can do. They usually feel as if they can make a difference in the world. They are called to serve! Traditionally, people that are drawn to the field would evaluate their greatest strength as their ability to connect with other human beings, where they are. They have usually been through similar circumstances and pain. They have committed themselves to a career that helps others help themselves. In today’s environment that is simply not enough. Having the right tools in place for “Clinical Decision Support,” administration, tracking progress via outcome measurement tools, patient safety, avoiding unnecessary redundancy, notifications and alerts, chart audits, and of course, the ability to adhere to regulatory standards is essential. Leveraging technology to accomplish these things and more is a must, relying on an electronic version of a chart, i.e. a simple EMR is less than prudent.
