Changes to Patient Records Software in NJ


New Horizon makes an essential move

SMART Management, Inc. serves New Horizons Treatment Services of New Jersey with patient records software for addiction treatment. Recently, this long-time community provider made an essential move from SMART’s legacy on-premise EHR software to SMART’s new cloud-hosted solution. New Horizon provides comprehensive multi-disciplinary outpatient addiction treatment services tailored to individuals’ needs. Services include counseling and medicated-assisted treatment (MAT) such as Vivitrol, Methadone, or Subutex. Following this transition, Billing Coordinator, Neerja L. said that “SMART response time has improved drastically. It seems to be faster, especially while generating reports. Patient activity tracer has two timeframe options, which is really helpful.” 

How is cloud-hosting important?

Many issues can occur when using on-premise solutions to store patient health information. Above all, on-premise patient records software do not have the capabilities to stay current with security and performance. SMART’s cloud-based EHR, powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a secure hosting solution. AWS helps covered entities subject to HIPAA processes, maintain, and store PHI. SMART also employs several extra layers of security that protect data stored in the cloud. SMART’s VPC, dedicated servers, Amazon Aurora, Trend Micro, and Armor security provide exceptional data recovery and virus protection. Learn more

Other benefits of an AWS cloud-hosted solution include efficiency and scalability. Whether you run a network of treatment programs or a private clinic, the ability to grow should be within reach. SMART’s EHR leverages the latest technologies to adjust size and performance with no downtime. Also, you can save on operational costs without the need for the upgrades and updates associated with on-premise solutions.

EHR Software Vendor Serves Massachusetts OTPs


SMART, EHR software vendor for opioid treatment programs proudly serves Habit OPCO Treatment Center. Now, apart of CRC Health Group, these Massachusetts-based clinics provide medically supervised methadone and Suboxone (buprenorphine) maintenance treatment. They help individuals working to overcome addiction to or dependence upon heroin or other opioids.

Methadone has been used for decades to treat individuals addicted to heroin and pain medicines. Many treatment providers have found success in treating patients via methadone dosing when combining with counseling and support programs. Habit Opco is a SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) Certified addiction treatment provider.

“With the ability to become fully electronic SMART has enabled us to improve communication within the program as well as ease the burden with paperwork. The medical order package has also simplified the need to write multiple orders when providing individual treatment to patients. As far as other departments go, another great feature is that we now have real-time access to multiple disciplines, medical, clinical, and financial. I have used two previous systems and this has been the best by far.”

Crossroads Centre of Antigua

At Crossroads Centre, they view addiction as a disease process, characterized by a dependence on substances, people, or behaviors. The resulting loss of control creates physical, emotional, and spiritual distress that erodes the stability of individuals and families.  This disease process is usually chronic and progressive, but definitely treatable.  We believe that there are two core goals necessary for recovery:

  • A commitment to abstinence from alcohol, other drugs, and compulsive behaviors.
  • A change in lifestyle that supports abstinence and promotes the healing process.

The mission at Crossroads Centre is to help individuals and their families begin this journey through a process of education and treatment. This begins with assessing the current physical, emotional, and spiritual status of the client, as well as the health of significant relationships in the individual’s life. Within their safe, confidential, and medically supervised milieu, education on the nature and progression of the disease helps to promote the need for abstinence for the client, as well as helping significant others in the client’s life understand their role in recovery.  Group and individual therapy promotes a greater understanding of the steps needed to continue the process of healing, and to maintain long-term recovery. Finally, creating an effective continuing care plan serves to support this progress, and results in an improved quality of relationships, careers, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.
