The PIMSY EHR solution has been designed specifically for practices working in the mental and behavioral health sectors with specific parts of the system tailored to help practitioners working with substance abusers.
Sold in three packages - prime, professional and platinum - with each supporting progress, assessment and tracking notes; client demographics; the ability to build custom treatment plans; client medication tracking; monitoring of patient vital signs; and team and group notes. The more expensive packages also allow clinicians to track client substance usage while the platinum package allows ePrescribing, continuity of care documents, immunization tracking.
Billing is included with all three but only the professional and platinum packages support electronic billing and electronic verification of a patient's eligibility for treatment. Full appointment and scheduling is included with all three, plus an interface to sync with Google Calendars.
Further add-ons can be purchased to integrate PIMSY with voice recognition software, revenue cycle management and billing services, automatic appointment reminders, SMS and email messaging and the Wiley Treatment Planner. At present, PIMSY only runs on Windows but Mac users are able to operate it on either Parallels or VMWare virtual machines. The company says that a native OSX version is under development.
PIMSY was set up in 2007 and is now used by mental and behavioral health practitioners in most US states. It is a product of Smoky Mountain Information Systems and is based in Waynesville, North Carolina.
