NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Qualifacts + Credible, the leading provider of electronic health record (EHR) platforms for behavioral health and human services organizations, has announced a partnership with Anderson Cherokee Community Enrichment Services (ACCESS) of Jacksonville, Texas, to utilize Credible’s industry leading comprehensive EHR platform.
ACCESS provides a variety of essential services to children and adults living with mental illness, helping to facilitate recovery and provide support to its clients and their loved ones. The agency had several requirements for a new EHR, including easier preparation of more visually compelling reports, a robust client portal, the ability to self-manage forms and a strong Mobile component for field staff. Credible was able to meet them all, said Ted Debbs, Chief Executive Officer.
“We have changes being pushed down to us from the state and federal levels all the time — we can’t afford to wait months for updates and risk not being compliant,” Debbs said. “Having that control and flexibility with forms is very important to us. We also are very pleased that we will be able to use Credible for state reporting right away. Until now we’ve had to input data into a state portal, which was time consuming and created a lot of extra work.”
Clients will benefit from Credible as well, added Donna Daigle-Thomas, Chief Program Officer.
“Credible’s portal was one of the best we’ve ever seen and will be so easy for our clients to use,” Daigle-Thomas said. “Many will be able to access and update information from home, saving even more time when they come in for an appointment.”
“Qualifacts + Credible is highly committed to supporting Texas providers and is making significant investments in state reporting and other Texas-specific enhancements to the Credible platform,” says Paul Ricci, CEO. “We are pleased to empower and work alongside ACCESS and our other Texas partners to ensure that their EHR supports their mission now and in the future.”
