“To be competitive in today’s healthcare arena and offer the very best quality care, this is an essential step for us to take,” says Wellspring CEO, Kathy Dobbins. Utilization of the  Electronic Health Record Program (EHR) is set for mid-November. Final design elements and testing of all aspects of the system are underway for a seamless implementation.  “The EHR system brings myriad advantages,” offers Dobbins. “Increased efficiencies across the agency, better tracking of quality metrics, assuring accurate charting and consistency in client treatment, and having the advantage of web-based access are just a few of the benefits we anticipate,” Dobbins adds.

“This has been about a two-year undertaking in all,” explains Dobbins.  “We are grateful for the support that made it possible, and excited about having the technology to move the agency forward.”

The James Graham Brown Foundation provided the major funding that allowed Wellspring to procure a       quality system, and Brown-Forman stepped up to support  implementation and additional training costs.
