OVERLAND PARK, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 11, 2024--

Netsmart will showcase innovations surrounding artificial intelligence (AI), revenue cycle management (RCM) and the latest advancements of the CareFabric ® platform at the National Council for Mental Wellbeing 2024 Conference ( NatCon24 ) taking place April 15-17 in St. Louis, Missouri.

“At Netsmart, we've not only been at the forefront of developing AI and automation solutions, but we're also shaping the future of how these important technologies are used and viewed,” said David Strocchia, SVP & Managing Director of Human Services, Netsmart. “This sets Netsmart apart from other healthcare technology vendors. Our focus on augmented intelligence — the ability to assist staff and clinicians with the technology that complements the care they deliver — is a core pillar of our strategy. This transformative approach isn't just about innovation, it's about staff retention, reimbursement and optimizing outcomes and we can’t wait to share more with you at NatCon24.”

Netsmart will highlight the impact of AI-driven solutions in electronic health records (EHRs) aimed at enhancing clinical workflows, optimizing operational efficiency and supporting providers’ efforts to optimize clinical outcomes. Bells AI ™, the first AI documentation assistant developed for human services, leverages cloud services, predictive modeling capabilities and natural language processing (NLP) to extract actionable insights from unstructured data. Today, Bells AI is being utilized by thousands of providers across 33 states.

“Bells AI has made an incredible difference for our team, because its intuitiveness has allowed them to streamline their documentation and workflow,” said Grace White, Chief Nursing and Quality Officer, MHMR of Tarrant County. “More than 91% of our staff members are utilizing the solution and the excitement of this technology continues to grow across our organization, and we are grateful to be working alongside the Netsmart team to evolve its capabilities surrounding care coordination and increased access to care.”

Attendees can also learn more about cloud-based RCM solutions which aim to help providers accelerate their cash flow, streamline productivity and increase profitability in Netsmart booth 1003. As organizations face staffing challenges, the AlphaCollector™ solution leverages robotic process automation (RPA) to help your collection staff engage at the right time, aiming to maximize productivity. Attendees can request demonstrations for 60+ innovative CareFabric solutions and services that help to digitize the enterprise of organizations’ workflows including human services EHRs, consumer engagement, population health management, mobile crisis technology, telehealth and more.

Netsmart, a long standing collaborator with the National Council for Mental Wellbeing (National Council), is excited to continue our participation in the Partnership Program as well as continue work on a Data Collaborative partnership to enhance care coordination and population health management for Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs). As part of the Collaborative initiative, the National Council named CareManager ™ as the preferred care coordination solution driving interoperability, operationalized data, analytics and ultimately greater insights to the sites implementing the CCBHC model to support efforts to improve outcomes across CCBHCs, health homes, and behavioral health organizations and states.

By utilizing cloud-based technology, the CareManager population health management solution coordinates care across settings with functionalities supporting a variety of care plans and programs such as the 988 crisis network, CalAIM Enhanced Care Management (ECM), value-based care programs and more.

Netsmart is the leading healthcare technology vendor for CCBHCs nationwide working alongside more than 180 organizations across 37 states to improve access to care.
