Accenture recently released its “Digital Health Technology Vision 2021 Survey,” and it’s no surprise that Behavioral Health and Human Services organizations face many of the same technology challenges and opportunities as the broader healthcare market.
According to the report, “Today’s leaders will prioritize technology innovation in response to a radically changing world marked by virtual care needs, rapidly changing healthcare consumer expectations, and a rise in new ecosystem partnerships.” That’s yes, yes, and yes for Behavioral Health and Human Services organizations, too.
Here are three trends Accenture identified that are also impacting Behavioral Health and Human Services organizations and their Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems:
“73% of healthcare executives say that their technology architecture is becoming critical to the overall success of their organization.” Behavioral Health and Human Services organizations are turning to enterprise-grade EHRs built on a single platform that can unify all of the core functionality of the EHR in one application accessed by all members of the organization. This helps organizations succeed with a far more comprehensive approach to analytics, operations, and care.
“Powerful technology capabilities are being put into the hands of the workforce so that they may become agents of change, optimizing their work or remedying pain points on their own.” Behavioral Health and Human Services organizations are looking for EHRs that allow people to tell the system how to work, not the other way around, with intuitive processes, workflows and reports, and easy access to relevant data and analyses.
“The pandemic shattered long standing views about how work gets done—and from where.” The increase in telehealth in Behavioral Health and Human Services, as in the broader healthcare market, is a perfect example of changes in how work gets done. Organizations are looking for unified, web-based EHRs that give them the flexibility to easily configure options like telehealth on the core platform so they can meet changing industry conditions.
