Booth 3952 and Interoperability Showcase
Contact Mike Sheppard, vice president of marketing
What is the “missing population” and why should you care about it? If you’re managing an ACO, health home, or integrated care organization where value-based contracts are top of mind, you need to know about one of the highest cost, most underserved populations in healthcare: people with behavioral health disorders. Integrating acute care and behavioral health services is critical to improving overall health outcomes in a population where the severely mentally ill die 25 years earlier than the general population, and co-morbid physical and mental health illnesses drastically drive up Medicaid and other loss ratios.
Netsmart is the leader in clinical coordinated care technology for behavioral health and the larger health and human services provider communities, and the ideal partner to help you link your primary care initiatives with broader, coordinated care for the body and the mind.
Netsmart was selected to participate in the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase and with Epic will demonstrate the integration and care coordination of physical health and behavioral health.
Also visit us in booth 3952 to see how Netsmart CareManager seamless integrates clinical data between two or more organizations to efficiently and safely coordinate care delivery.

Join Perceptive Software at HIMSS14 in booth 4765 where we’ll demonstrate how you can deliver a complete patient record by bridging the content gaps in your existing applications. We will show you how to optimize your EMR and other IT systems by bringing all content, no matter the source, into view.
At booth 4765 solution experts will be available to discuss how we can help you:

- Image-enable your EMR
- Streamline finance and human resources workflows by eliminating manual tasks
- Unlock valuable content regardless of where it exists with enterprise search.
