SMART Electronic Health Record-System USAOTP Conference

Electronic Health Record System – USAOTP Texas Exhibit

SMART Electronic Health Record-System USAOTP Conference

Attendees enjoying SMART’s booth give-aways

October 2017 – SMART recently showcased our electronic health record system to opioid treatment providers in Texas. The USAOTP 2017 Conference in Austin brought together opioid treatment providers for two days of networking and educational sessions. A few topics of discussion included current regulations, ethics, Medicaid and other funding, Methadone treatment issues, and the history of addiction. Attendees were excited to share and learn best practices through networking.

The influence USAOTP had on our electronic health record system

SMART Associates value the chance to spend face-to-face time with conference attendees. Further, the expressed needs of the opioid addiction treatment field directly impact the evolution of SMART’s EHR. Helping providers deliver the best in class patient care is what drives the functionalities we build into our opioid treatment EHR. The carefully designed features of our EHR can help to implement efficiencies across treatment organizations.

About SMART

SMART Management, Inc. developed the electronic health record system, the SMART Solution/SMART Software, in 1991. This EHR was originally created to improve operational efficiency and increase ROI at SMART’s family-owned network of substance use treatment facilities. Since then, SMART’s Cloud-Based EHR continues to evolve as a result of our extensive clinical experience. And it continues to grow with our partner’s needs. Learn more in FAQs

The workshop showcased poetry, music, painting, and other art forms. These were examples of how art can not only aid in the recovery process, but also can serve as a way to bring about understanding and end stigma.

Appreciating Dedicated Treatment Professionals

Customers ascended upon the American Visionary Arts Museum Halloween night for an evening of art appreciation, dinner and surprises! Guests enjoyed touring the multi-floor visionary museum leisurely throughout the evening. Finally, the night concluded with a grand raffle drawing. This included an Apple Watch, FitBit, wireless bluetooth speaker, wireless travel charging station and even a Polaroid camera. This was a great opportunity for professionals to relax and enjoy informal networking in a fun atmosphere.
