Spectrum Health Care’s New EHR

Spectrum-Health-Care-Team-During-SMART-Training-copy SMART is honored to announce that Spectrum Health Care, Inc. has chosen the SMART Solution as their EHR of choice. Our EHR has been implemented in their clinic in Jersey City, NJ. Spectrum Health has been providing outpatient opioid treatment services to the people of Hudson County since 1984. SMART welcomes this CARF-Accredited opioid treatment provider to our family of software customers.

It was a joy meeting the clinic staff and to learning more about their individual needs and experiences. We worked side-by-side with them to configure the software to their needs. Then we establish system settings to support their workflow and increase efficiency in daily operations. With any implementation, there is a great deal of information to collect, transfer, and protect. And training on any new EHR involves a fair amount of one-on-one guidance. This ensures that the partner’s needs are thoroughly captured and that goals are clearly expressed. Both teams were pleased with the outcome and are excited for the future this new partnership.

Installation at New Brunswick Counseling Center

Summer 2015 – The SMART Software team worked closely to coordinate New Brunswick Counseling Center’s adoption of SMART’s EHR software. Our team was excited to work with such a talented group of employees. Our first goal was to ease them through the initial transition. It’s always great to watch early hesitation over something new give way to a feeling of having made the right choice. Customer Relations Representative Sandy Silva noted, “It’s already clear that SMART Software is going to make their lives easier in a number of ways including administration, clinical, and medical.” More than one of the staff noted, “Thank you for making me believe in SMART.”

The SMART Team always looks forward to face-to-face interactions with customers in their own clinical setting. Each visit is a learning opportunity for both parties, a chance to meet new people and build new relationships, and show an ever-growing list of organizations how to use and benefit most from SMART’s EHR Software. We are thrilled to welcome New Brunswick Counseling Center to our family of SMART Software Partners.
