Everything your practice needs to know.

Now that we’ve officially launched our Axiom EHR software, we’re excited to provide you with details on exactly how Axiom is changing the game for behavioral health care organizations. As you’re probably aware, there are plenty of articles that discuss how EHR software is usually less-than-stellar. This industry-awareness of inadequacy is exactly why we’ve built a viable alternative from the ground-up that actually addresses the pain points associated with legacy EHR software.

Care coordination is especially critical for behavioral health care providers due to the higher-than-average turnover rate for behavioral health care specialists. According to an OnShift analysis, the average turnover rate hovers between an alarming 40% and 70%. Unsurprisingly, the same applies for patients, with the average patient no-show rate also coming in at 40%. With the astronomical amount of staff and patient turnover, behavioral health care clinics can’t afford to have a faulty EHR system. All data needs to be easily accessible so new staff members can easily pick up where the last one left off.

We also can’t stress enough the importance of robust analytics. It’s one thing to have easily-accessible data, but what good is it if your staff can’t make sense of it? Axiom’s health intelligence and decision support give practitioners the ability to synthesize data in a way that reveals all patient conditions. By harnessing the power of artificial intelligence, we’re able to unlock the true power of what a quality EHR tool can really do. This even includes the ability to use predictive analytics to anticipate the probability of specific patient’s not showing up. More intuitive analytics leads to sizeable cost savings, so why stick with a legacy EHR tool that can’t measure up?

Lastly, customization is key for any behavioral health care organization. Legacy EHR tools will say they’re customizable, but what they really mean is that with eight months notice and a sizeable fee, they’ll customize something as simple as a form and stress you out in the process. Axiom allows behavioral health care staff to create custom forms on the fly for all of their patients’ unique needs at no extra cost. Permission to create forms are set by the admin, and all forms are created through easy-to-understand drag-and-drop options. This helps behavioral health practitioners spend less time on the phone with customer service and more time with their patients.

Convinced, but still wondering about what it would take to implement a new solution? One of the biggest reasons behavioral health care providers hesitate on switching EHR solutions is the stress of data transfer from one EHR solution to another. If your clinic has ever been a victim of a poorly-executed transition, this is all the more reason to explore the capabilities of Axiom. We’re equipped to help you every step of the way, from project planning, kickoff, review, acceptance, prep, training, testing and optimization—all in 60 days or less. We see our customers as partners, and we provide unparalleled customer support at every stage.

If you’re a behavioral health care professional who’s tired of settling for less, now is the time to make the switch to Axiom. Contact us today to learn more about how Axiom can transform your organization— one patient at a time.
