Mental Health News Radio is always on the hunt for innovative technology that aids our Behavioral Health providers. Our article on Spiritually Integrated Therapy was found by Next Step Solutions, Inc. After reading our other articles on why we care so much about this sector of healthcare, Next Step picked up the phone and made a connection with our CEO, Kristin Walker.
A visit to their corporate office in Michigan last year was yet another stop on our 2014 journey across the United States visiting EHR vendors and Behavioral Health practices. Kristin had the opportunity to meet everyone on the team and see what a software organization does that is heavy on development and light on marketing agendas. It was certainly a pleasure.
NextStep™ has developed a digital pen system and embedded artificial intelligence into their EHR. Sounds unbelievable right? A science fiction movie, maybe? We saw it action at their office and while we visited several of their clients. NextStep™ has clients across the United States using their award-winning software for behavioral health private practices, research clinics, residential programs, outpatient agencies and state hospitals. It was a pleasure to sit down with Dr. Darrin Hanna and David Ballenberger, MSW to discuss their product, their organization, and what the future holds for behavioral health technology.
Kristin Walker, founder of everythingEHR, was a recent guest on the TechnologyAdvice Expert Interview Series to share her insight on the intersection of sales, marketing, and technology as it relates to Behavioral Healthcare. The series, which is hosted by TechnologyAdvice’s Josh Bland, explores a variety of business and technology landscapes through conversations with industry leaders.

We were also excited to interview Charles “Drew” Settles, Product Analyst with TechnologyAdvice. He joined us on Mental Health News Radio.

Part of our work as consultants in Behavioral and Women’s Healthcare is to help our clients find the best EHR solutions for their organizations. We stand on a pretty tall soapbox and offer complimentary tools to help people through the maze that can certainly feel harrowing. TechnologyAdvice is a fresh face out in the marketplace offering excellent advice and services to healthcare providers and agencies but also to the EHR vendors we care about. It has been our distinct pleasure to introduce several Behavioral Healthcare vendors to TechnologyAdvice so that providers looking for help finding the right tools have plenty of options.
We enjoyed being invited on their Expert Interview Series discussing buyouts and sub specialties within the EHR market. During our pre-interview calls we were introduced to Charles “Drew” Settles who fast became one of our favorite guests. We refer to him as “The Brain” and certainly hope he’ll join us as a series regular. No topic was off the table. We simply had to fit in as much invaluable information to a thirty minute segment as possible (we still went over time but we promise it’s worth a listen – be prepared to take notes). We covered what TechnologyAdvice has to over software vendors. We encourage all Behavioral Health EHR vendors to sign up with their services so consumers aren’t limited in their choices.
LISTEN TO THE SHOW!
The reason we started Mental Health News Radio was to give those serving behavioral health a voice. We are the listeners. We are also caregivers. We wanted a platform where your voices could be heard. Where an audience of your peers can listen to your stories. Stories about what inspired you to become a therapist, open your own practice, or work in a community mental health center, what your specialties are, what tools and services you use to maintain your clinical records, and how you take care of yourself.
There is no doubt you will enjoy this next show. Our entire team was inspired just listening to our guest Annie Shaw. She is a perfect example of why we love hosting Mental Health News Radio.
LISTEN TO THE SHOW!
You hear through the grapevine about great people doing incredible work in Behavioral Health. People with civic-minded spirit and determined to make invaluable contributions to this sector of healthcare. People like Lisette Wright.
We were introduced to Lisette by her colleague Dr. Marlene Maheu and honored to be introduced. Of course we had to interview her for Mental Health News Radio! It was refreshing and affirming to talk to a true collaborator. We know who to bring in that will get into the specifics of ICD-10, Meaningful Use, PQRS, and large scale EHR implementations. Join us for an informative discussion about what Behavioral Health providers and agencies are NOT taking seriously and should.
