everythingEHR is always on the hunt for innovative technology that aids our Behavioral Health providers. Our article on Spiritually Integrated Therapy was found by Next Step Solutions, Inc. After reading our other articles on why we care so much about this sector of healthcare, Next Step picked up the phone and made a connection with our CEO, Kristin Walker.
A visit to their corporate office in Michigan last year was yet another stop on our 2014 journey across the United States visiting EHR vendors and Behavioral Health practices. Kristin had the opportunity to meet everyone on the team and see what a software organization does that is heavy on development and light on marketing agendas. It was certainly a pleasure.
NextStep™ has developed a digital pen system and embedded artificial intelligence into their EHR. Sounds unbelievable right? A science fiction movie, maybe? We saw it action at their office and while we visited several of their clients. NextStep™ has clients across the United States using their award-winning software for behavioral health private practices, research clinics, residential programs, outpatient agencies and state hospitals. It was a pleasure to sit down with Dr. Darrin Hanna and David Ballenberger, MSW to discuss their product, their organization, and what the future holds for behavioral health technology.

Today we interview business owner, clinician, and consultant Theresa Wray of Synergy Consulting Services. A rare and exciting connection for us because of one major factor: Theresa loves finding needles in haystacks. In fact, she excels at it. All of the necessary yet hair pulling work that counselors and Behavioral Health organizations dread to do are actually fun for Theresa. Things like reading your Managed Care contracts, auditing your charts, reviewing compliance plans, and verifying state regulations. Enjoy getting to know her during our interview on Mental Health News Radio. More importantly, enjoy getting to know what she can do for your Behavioral Health organization.

Why the name ‘Synergy’? What exactly does that mean?
You “officially” launched earlier this year. How are things going?

How so? What types of services do you provide?
Managed care, particularly around Compliance/Fraud, Waste, and Abuse, documentation, state-specific regulations, as well around some of the business-related issues that we weren’t taught about in grad school. For example, NPIs, CAQH, taxonomy codes, coming on board with managed care organizations, developing paperwork.
