Better outcomes for individuals and improved operational, clinical and financial performance for county organizations.
Netsmart provides technology solutions and services for county Health and Human Services departments as they fulfill their missions of improving the health and well-being of their communities. Netsmart understands this significant responsibility, and helps counties address complex needs with solutions that streamline processes, increase interoperability, embrace the transition to value-based care, track outcomes, and turn aggregated data into actionable information.
Information siloes can leave counties with an incomplete view of their community and the multiple points of intersection a person may have across disparate county departments and programs. Netsmart’s CareFabric® Platform begins at the core with cloud-based electronic medical record solutions, and extends the reach of data and information sharing with connectivity, mobility and community engagement offerings. Our care coordination tools provide counties with both individual and population-level views of their community.
The result: better outcomes for individuals and improved operational, clinical and financial performance for county organizations.
Netsmart is now the trusted knowledge and technology partner for more than 250 county Health and Human Services departments, encompassing behavioral health; addiction treatment; intellectual and developmental disabilities; child and family services; public health; long-term/post-acute care; home health; hospice; palliative care; private duty and vital records
