Indiana’s NeuroPsychiatric Hospitals chooses MEDHOST enterprise clinical and financial solutions for care network
NeuroPsychiatric Hospitals, comprised of three facilities in northern and central Indiana, selected MEDHOST’s suite of integrated enterprise clinical and financial solutions to move from paper-based patient and financial processes to an automated and streamlined solution.
The NeuroPsychiatric Hospitals network includes specialty facilities that care for patients who have psychiatric, neurological disorders along with medical co-morbidities, particularly geriatric patients. The hospital system includes RiverCrest Specialty Hospital in Mishawaka, Indiana; Doctors NeuroPsychiatric Hospital in Bremen, Indiana; and NeuroPsychiatric Hospital of Indianapolis.
As part of its search for leading enterprise clinical and financial solutions that included an electronic health record (EHR), NeuroPsychiatric Hospitals identified MEDHOST as its best healthcare technology partner. Hospital leaders saw value in MEDHOST’s success as a long-time provider of solutions designed to fit the unique needs of specialty hospitals, including behavioral and medical acute care facilities.
“At NeuroPsychiatric Hospitals, our specialty is providing a superior continuum in neurological, psychiatric, and complex medical care, which requires a seamless intake process for our patients. We needed a technology partner who was both experienced and highly successful with enterprise clinicals and financials in behavioral hospitals, and we found that in MEDHOST,” said Jim Hummer, executive vice president of marketing, NeuroPsychiatric Hospitals. “MEDHOST’s strong specialty hospital reputation and track record cemented our decision that it was the right fit for our facilities and our patients, who benefit greatly from our modern facilities.”
As a participating Medicare and Tri-Care provider, the NeuroPsychiatric Hospitals network also accepts private insurance and private pay. By automating billing processes systemwide through MEDHOST financial solutions, staff can streamline financial processes to payers and insurance providers to help them better effectively manage resources, enhance revenue, and improve patient care through enhanced data tracking.
From a clinical standpoint, NeuroPsychiatric Hospitals executives wanted automated access to patient records, as it helps improve patient care. With MEDHOST clinical solutions, staff can electronically chart patient treatments, include detailed clinician and therapist notations, and enable multiple departments to add crucial test results and patient information to provide a holistic patient picture, which is key to high-quality care.
“We believe it’s critical for specialty hospitals to have access to enterprise clinical and financial solutions that are purpose-built for their unique needs rather than trying to force-fit technology into their specialized care environments,” said Bill Anderson, chairman and CEO of MEDHOST. “We are pleased to continue our commitment to specialty hospitals through our new relationship with NeuroPsychiatric Hospitals, and we will be working hard to support their short- and long-term clinical and financial goals.”
