Gulf Bend Center Goes Live With SmartCare EHR


Kalamazoo, MI – [June 18, 2018] – Gulf Bend Center in Victoria, TX recently launched the SmartCare Electronic Health Record (EHR) provided by Streamline Healthcare Solutions. With the assistance of the SmartCare solution, we are helping Gulf Bend consolidate multiple systems which enables them to continue to deliver quality client care while still meeting Texas state requirements and allowing flexibility for growth and change.

“We are excited about working with Streamline and believe their EHR Software (SmartCare) will dramatically improve our customer care and the health of the communities we serve. SmartCare is already providing reliable access for complete patient health information, which is essential for safe and effective care. This can lead to a better customer experience and most importantly, better customer outcomes.” – Jeffrey Tunnell, Executive Director, Gulf Bend Center

  • TRR Assessments and Authorizations
  • Encounter Batching
  • CARE Batching
  • Electronic Forms for the IDD process for General Revenue, TxHmL and HCS
  • Billing Functionality for IDD A & B Services
  • Early Childhood Intervention Forms and Processes
