Is Your Mental Health Practice Ready For End of Year Reporting?

mental health agency end of year reporting

The calendar has rolled over to 2019, so out with the old and in with the new, right? Not so fast. Just because office hours are back to normal and the piles of holiday treats have disappeared doesn’t mean you’ve finished your 2018 work. For behavioral healthcare practices, this time of year typically requires careful attention to year-end reports as annual insurance contracts end and compliance records and grant reports come due.

Annual reports can be complicated and detailed. One practitioner, for example, held a county contract that required extensive information regarding the services the practice provided. The requirements went well beyond simple demographic information, like how many children served or the total number of clinic appointments for the reporting period. The practice had to provide information about how many children were on medication and, of those children, how many took one, two, or three meds. The contract also required details on services the practice offered parents. In addition to details regarding clinic contacts, the practice had to disseminate, score, and report on rating scales it used to judge progress (or lack thereof). The reporting requirements went on and on.

With ClinicTracker, you have easy access to the information you need to complete these complex reporting requirements for mental health and substance abuse practices. Without an EHR that can generate all the reports you need, you’ll spend hours compiling and interpreting mountains of data. Then you’ll have to figure out a professional way to present the results to your board, regulators, funding sources, and the many others who look over your shoulder.

We’ve heard horror stories about agencies that have lost funding or even accreditation because their EHR couldn’t generate mandated reports. ClinicTracker makes year-end reports – whether for courts, grants, statistics, or financial analyses – happen effortlessly.

ClinicTracker creates the reports you need when you need them. You don’t have to wait for programmers or worry about changes in regulations or formats. Our vast library of reports (we’ve been accumulating them for over 18 years) and a Report Builder help you make customized reports. Use one of our hundreds of pre-defined reports or design one that meets your exact specifications. You’ll get clear, attractive reports with accurate information every time.

ClinicTracker’s intuitive software minimizes the burden of collecting and storing data all year long. When it comes time to prepare reports, ClinicTracker’s functionality again saves you time and frustration. On-time, accurate reports let you avoid payment penalties and may earn you bonuses for meeting quality reporting requirements. That means you can start the new year focusing on your priority: your patients.
