Polaris chose the SMART Solution for its 100% paperless operations. SMART Trainer Sandy said  “They were really happy to finally go paperless. Everyone was excited to find out how much time they would actually save.” More than just paperless, SMART’s complete clinic management system increases efficiencies through automation. It automates required services, patient check-in, medication dispensing, and nursing notifications. Furthermore, as a cloud-based tool, this EHR provides access to patient treatment data with ease and security.

They addressed every question that we had and explained the training material thoroughly. They made this process such an enjoyable experience and alleviated all concerns of the staff. We can’t say enough good things about the training team.” 

An EHR Vendor for OTPs

Some EHR Vendors are able to handle the unique workflow of OTPs but few are built specifically for that purpose. SMART’s EHR streamlines operations in opioid treatment programs with modules designed for opioid treatment workflows.

Twenty-five years ago, President and CEO David Piccoli, II designed The SMART Solution to improve operational efficiency and increase ROI at his family-owned network of substance use treatment facilities. This EHR continues to evolve as a result of SMART’s extensive clinical experience and tremendous breadth of industry expertise. It is this history and experience in delivering opioid treatment services while utilizing their own time-tested solution that makes this customizable EHR such a great choice.
