Netsmart announced the availability of a series of innovative solutions and capabilities for health and human services in several emerging areas Herzog described as "critical to the goal of supporting a holistic model of care."

Netsmart Perspectives™ Mobility Suite Provides Points of View Critical for Clinicians
"Our new Netsmart Perspectives suite of tablet and smart phone solutions provides a framework designed to support specific workflows for specific points of view, optimizing both use and outcomes," said Herzog. "Our focus is on design — leveraging touch and voice technologies while ensuring intuitive workflows." The Netsmart Perspectives suite provides apps to facilitate clinical workflows, e-prescribing, kiosk check in/out, patient mHealth, learning management tools, observation recording, health device monitoring, medication adherence, IT system monitoring and dashboards.
"True interoperability isn’t selective; you either are or you’re not, and it’s a relationship that must extend beyond traditional interfaces," said Herzog. "We are witnessing the rapid integration of the physical, mental and behavioral aspects of health and healthcare delivery. Netsmart’s innovations provide an expanding platform for healthcare coordination and integration via Netsmart CareConnect™, which ensures that clinical information is integrated and available across all points of care to help achieve the highest quality of care."
"By the middle of the year we will be managing over 500 facilities with our Netsmart Plexus Cloud™ secure hosting environment," said Herzog. "We have tripled our investment in our hosting services, opened another data center and continue to expand our services to host most any application."
"The National Council conference and our own client conference provide great forums to introduce our innovations and collaborate on the possibilities before us. We’re committed to innovation not for its own sake, but because it can be a powerful catalyst for care coordination. Our approach is person-centric, focused on efficiency, optimal outcomes and recovery," said Herzog.
Netsmart provides the solutions and expertise that help its clients meet all the criteria for Meaningful Use of an Electronic Health Record (EHR) under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009.
Building upon Netsmart’s Complete ARRA-Certified EHRs, Netsmart clients can also create a complete connected care environment encompassing e-prescribing and order entry, sharing clinical information and lab results, and using Web portals to provide secure and private consumer access to care information.
