Thank you for joining us.
One of the fastest growing EHRs in the Behavioral Health market is EHR YOUR WAY. We’ve had the pleasure of working with their team for over a year and as you’ll hear on the show, it has been eye opening for our consulting group. With Behavioral Health finally getting the recognition it deserves, we are seeing an explosion of new technology vendors. We were able to glue our guest, Jay Lacny, to his chair for longer than 5 minutes and discuss this exciting and innovative EHR, why they chose to focus on Behavioral Health, and (without giving away their secrets) why they’ve become so popular, so fast. If you are looking for advanced tools for Behavioral Health with affordable pricing, tune in to this show!

A pleasure for all of us at everythingEHR is finding organizations that truly care about and have credibility in Behavioral Health. One of our favorite EHR vendors is ClinicTracker by JAGProducts. We had the opportunity to meet their entire team in 2014 and again in June of 2015 at their offices in New York. We want to know who the people are that work behind the scenes to bring excellent technology to our mental health providers.

Diane Yeager RN worked as a nurse in Labor & Delivery and Intensive Care for 7 years until 1992 at which point her career shifted to education. For the next 15 years, Diane worked as a Nursing Instructor in Northeast Ohio. Her results were impressive with an NCLEX pass rate for her graduating students of 97% throughout her teaching career. Her impact as a teacher was recognized when, during her fifth year of teaching, she received the Ohio Organization of Practical Nurse Educators' award for Distinguished Practical Nurse Educator of 1996.
Diane's success as an educator was due to her enthusiasm for integrating computer technology into her teaching methodology which led to the creation of FreeNurseTutor, launched in 2006. Freenursetutor.com is a unique and completely free website that lets educators and students use a collection of self-paced and learning activities with a focus on interactivity and individualized learning. FreeNurseTutor is now used as an educational supplement by healthcare instructors and students at hundreds of schools.
In 2007, Diane followed the trends in healthcare technology and transitioned to a career as an Electronic Health Records trainer. Diane has developed curriculum and instructional materials and trained healthcare personnel during large scale EHR system implementations at major hospital systems.
As an EHR trainer, and through continued contact with healthcare educators, it became clear to Diane that most career tech and nursing schools simply do not have a way to prepare their students for the new world of electronic records. She enthusiastically embraced this as a personal challenge and used her experience in education and electronic health records to create an academic EHR system: EHR Tutor. EHR Tutor is designed to immediately deliver the "missing piece" of electronic records to any school's program. More information regarding EHR Tutor can be found at ehrtutor.com.
In order to maintain privacy and confidentiality, there are rules of access to Electronic Health Records (EHR) that can sometimes present barriers to delivering the best care.
Tracy Zervakis and her daughter recently had quite an adventure trying to get the right medicine at the right time, and ran into several roadblocks imposed by the access rules around EHR at her hospital.
While it sounds like a good idea to restrict access to those with a "need to know," in practice it sometimes get in the way. Perhaps we need to re-think those rules, not only for the events in a peaceful day at the office, but also in an emergency.
Joyce and Mike speak with Tracy about her adventure and about ideas for improving the flow of medical information to patients, to emergency personnel, and to all those who really do "need to know" in order to deliver the right care at the right time.
We met Sean Erreger when he attended our presentation on EHR technology for The National Council for Behavioral Health. Sean was also a presenter at the conference about the proper use of social media in the field of mental health. It can save lives and let’s face it: Social Media is not going anywhere. We might as well use it for good! Join Sean as we interview each other about what we do, why we do it, and why we are both so passionate about Behavioral Health.

Imagine a work environment where you are literally in "eat or be killed" mode, and something as important as your paycheck is involved. This doesn't lend itself to a team spirit environment.
Today's guest, Kristin Sunanata Walker, CEO of Everything EHR says: "What I see in organizations where leadership has created a toxic work environment is the prevalence of health issues from mental decline, eating disorders, anxiety, PTSD, etc."
"Like the toxic village elder that wants no children to go to school lest they become smarter than he or she, narcissistic leaders keep their staff in an ever rotating position of ambiguity, gaslighting, love bombing, and paranoia. If anyone other than the leader shines too brightly this results in massive narcissistic injury. A beheading is commonplace and the longer the staff continue on in this environment the harder it will be for them to leave. They do take on the traits of their leader and live in a sheltered yet grandiose bubble of superiority on a ship of fools."
Today Kristin will discuss, among other things, what she refers to as the characters in the Narcissistic Leaders game: The cheerleader, the star, and the doldrums.
Kristin Sunanta Walker is the host of Mental Health News Radio and Mental Health After Dark. Her company everything EHR is dedicated to working within the Behavioral Health technology space helping vendors and mental health organizations create and utilize incredible tools for excellent patient care. Her book Emotional Impotence will be released in early 2017.
