Tri-County Behavioral Healthcare Chooses Streamline’s SmartCare™ EHR Platform


Tri-County Behavioral Healthcare Chooses SmartCare™, an Enterprise, Cloud-Based, Single-Solution EHR Platform

Oakbrook Terrace, IL – After an extensive evaluation and procurement process, Tri-County Behavioral Healthcare, based in Conroe, Texas, has selected Streamline’s SmartCare™ as its’ next Electronic Health Record (EHR) solution. Tri-County Behavioral Healthcare is one of the 39 Community Centers in Texas that will be using SmartCare™ as their Mental Health, Intellectual and Developmental Disability (IDD) programs and other major functionality components. Several deciding factors led them to SmartCare™, such as the need for a web-based application, a developer-friendly system with a high degree of flexibility and configuration, and the scale to meet their reporting needs going forward. Tri-County valued the partnership approach with Streamline, as both parties expect continued growth and EHR innovation across Texas.

Streamline and Tri-County will work together to map their workflows within SmartCare™ to meet Texas state reporting and CCBHC requirements. These will include managing the TRR process, utilizing the SmartCare™ IDD Golden Thread, and expanding the SmartCare™ IDD form library, CARE Batching, Encounter Batching, and more.

“This is an exciting time for Tri-County, our partners, and most importantly, our clients.  We are looking forward to modernizing our Electronic Health Record, which will give us another tool essential to providing efficient, effective patient-centered care.  After a long, intensive evaluation process, we were overwhelmed with confidence that Streamline was where we needed to be.  Over the next few months, we are looking forward to learning, growing, and for the years to come, naturally evolving with Streamline with a common goal to build a system of care for those we serve, their families, their providers, and our community as a whole,” said Kenneth Barfield, SR Director of Manager Information Systems, Tri-County Behavioral Healthcare.

Javed Husain, Co-CEO, Streamline Healthcare Solutions, commented, “We are very excited to add Tri-County Behavioral Healthcare to our growing Texas community. Streamline’s goal is to provide industry leaders like Tri-County the tools they need to provide a diverse set of care coordinated services with innovation in the marketplace. SmartCare was designed to do just that; empower all stakeholders to focus on what really matters, helping their clients in need to achieve the best outcome in their mental wellbeing journey.”
