Implementing an electronic health record (EHR) solution can be a challenging experience for many behavioral health provider organizations. Once implementation is completed, it is vital that health care provider organizations evaluate whether their EHR partner and solution are meeting all their needs or if the system is costing the organization valuable time and money.

OPEN MINDS, the premier market intelligence and management support firm specializing in the sectors of the health and human service field serving consumers with chronic conditions and complex support needs, and Core Solutions, Inc. (Core), the progressive leader in integrated behavioral health electronic health record (EHR) technology, have collaborated to create a white paper and cost estimation model for analyzing the challenges and costs associated with retaining an electronic health record system that isn’t meeting the needs of a behavioral health organization.

An executive web briefing based on the white paper research will be held on Thursday, July 31st at 2:00 PM EDT, which will be presented by Joseph Naughton-Travers, Senior Associate at OPEN MINDS. This executive web briefing will discuss the major findings of the research, as well as provide a preview of the cost estimate model.


This 90-minute online event will provide attendees with:

  • An overview of the phases involved in a typical EHR implementation
  • Some common challenges experienced during the implementation process
  • The costs associated with retaining an EHR system that isn’t meeting your organization’s needs

At its conclusion, all registrants will receive (at no charge) a recording of the webinar, an electronic copy of the presentation, and a copy of the white paper.
