SMART’s automated medication dispensing system, along with this EHR’s complete clinic management system, is now running at Stockton Medical Group.  Their compassionate staff helps individuals struggling with addiction through advocacy, counseling and medication-assisted treatment (MAT). MAT decreases withdrawal symptoms, increases individual stability, and reduces risk of relapse. Recovery inspires the ongoing development of SMART’s EHR. With more than 25 years of experience, this EHR intuitively organizes operations at opioid treatment clinics like Stockton.

Managing many treatment programs within one system can be challenging. Accordingly, Stockton is taking on these issues by integrating SMART’s EHR across their six locations. This EHR manages medication inventory, reduces dosing errors, and protects patient safety. Additionally, the reports in SMART’s Medication Inventory Management module simplify key information. As a result, they can streamline preparation for DEA audits.

Following this EHR implementation, Operations Manager Lianna shared her experience. “I appreciated the friendliness and continued help from the SMART team.” SMART’s implementation team appreciates the importance of a great support system. In fact, many have extensive clinical, operational management, and technical expertise.

This summer our Community Awareness Team hosted a SMART breakfast fundraiser to benefit the Sunaay Foundation. This non-profit organization in New Delhi, India provides educational opportunities to less fortunate children in the region.

At the front of the room, our team presented an inspirational and educational video about the foundation. This featured students of the learning center and Sunaay Founder Richha Sharma. The video explains that among the many unique qualities of this learning center, sessions are held entirely outdoors. This helps to keep costs low and to ensure that all donations go to helping the children directly.

Our team personally, planned, purchased, baked, cooked and served up an amazing breakfast to SMART Associates. Everyone made a reasonable monetary contribution. The associate turnout at this latest SMART Community Awareness Fundraiser was great. Moreover, everyone who attended is thrilled for the opportunity to do good while being treated to a delicious breakfast.

About Sunaay Foundation

“Sunaay” stems from the word “Suneeti.” It is an initiative of like-minded individuals who have agreed to work towards a common cause, to empower underprivileged, uneducated children to live meaningful and self-reliant lives. Based out of New Delhi, India, they are involved with imparting primary education. This is accomplished through an outdoor makeshift, multi-graded, interactive learning program.  Students are underprivileged children aged between 2 -12 years.

Sunaay endeavors to ignite the minds of less fortunate children and spark a desire for them to learn. They use non-conventional, easy to relate tools to help them understand the basic concepts of Hindi, English (both spoken and written) and maths. They also educate them on matters of personal hygiene and social environment. Learn more
