The Southern Minnesota Electronic Medical Record Consortium has selected Nashville, Tenn.-based Qualifacts Systems Inc. to provide an integrated Electronic Health Record (EHR) and billing solution for the group’s four behavioral health provider members:

  • Zumbro Valley Mental Health Center, Rochester, Minn.
  • Family Service Rochester, Rochester, Minn.
  • Goodhue County Mental Health Services, Red Wing, Minn.
  • South Central Human Relations Center, Owatonna, Minn.

The search began for an EHR when the state issued a mandate for e-prescribing by 2011 and local county human services commenced restructuring of the mental health delivery system. Each agency knew a flexible EHR system would help them earn financial incentives, achieve compliance and gain clinical and business efficiencies. They opted to join forces to implement an EHR as a collaborative in order to take advantage of the group’s shared resources, according to Carlson.
