DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. and NASHVILLE, Tenn. October 23, 2017—St. Christopher’s, Inc., an organization dedicated to helping adolescents with emotional, behavioral and learning disabilities, today announced a strategic partnership with Qualifacts designed to raise the bar in client care quality. Leveraging the Qualifacts CareLogic electronic health record (EHR) platform to centralize information and make it accessible online for key stakeholders, the team at St. Christopher’s expects to deliver integrated care more efficiently and effectively across three campus locations.“At St. Christopher’s, we truly are delivering integrated care — and helping youth excel academically, as well as socially and emotionally, is a big focus for our team,” said Dr. Rachelle Karmin, Chief Strategy Officer at St. Christopher’s. “The young people we serve present with a variety of needs, so, we chose the CareLogic EHR platform for its capabilities to allow our diverse group of clinical and health services staff a clear line of sight into the information they need to share. CareLogic will allow the right level of access for each team member to the appropriate documentation, from treatment planning to progress notes and assessments, so no one is working in a vacuum.”One of the most profound recent trends in the behavioral healthcare industry is the expansion of care for clients presenting with co-occurring disorders. According to a report published by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, more than 68% of adults with a mental disorder have at least one medical condition, and 29% of those with a medical condition had a comorbid mental health condition. That’s why more organizations are seeking tools to help team members form strong relationships and communicate in real-time, across specialties.
“We’re proud to partner with St. Christopher’s to help their team members work together to improve the lives of young men and women with special needs,” said Todd Charest, Chief Product Officer for Qualifacts. “With CareLogic, the staff will be able to efficiently and effectively move through the clinical and administrative care processes to focus on what matters most, improving the lives of others.”
