OrionNet Systems -ThinkHealth EHR meets Grant Requirement & Encourages Grant Opportunities - 4/21/2017

Oklahoma’s Behavioral Health Industry has been devastated by the massive budget cuts over the last few years. With the next fiscal year quickly approaching, another budget shortfall is inevitable. Agencies are searching for other funding opportunities to help sustain there business so they can continue to render services to our Oklahoma Citizens.

SAMHSA provides a list of Federal Funding Opportunity Announcements on there website.

Applying for Federal Funding Grants is not a simple endeavor. It takes time to find and research them, understanding the purpose and expectations for funding, meeting the eligibility criteria, completing the application process, and finally the submission, evaluation, and selection process. Applying for an FOA, although time consuming would be an enormous benefit to agencies and the clients they provide services for. Having extra funding during Oklahoma’s budget crisis would assist agencies in keeping the doors open and  the ability to provide appropriate services and care to the community.

The majority of Federal Grant Opportunities require the use of a certified EHR or an electronic health record system.  In the SAMHSA’s FOA (funding Opportunity Announcement) Part II it states, “Electronic Health Record (EHR) Technology: All SAMHSA grantees who provide services to individuals are encouraged to demonstrate ongoing clinical use of a certified EHR system in each year of their SAMHSA grant. A certified EHR is an electronic health record system that has been tested and certified by an approved Office of National Coordinator’s (ONC) certifying body.

OrionNet Systems wants to reassure customers that ThinkHealth EHR has been tested and certified by ICSA Labs, our EHR version of ThinkHealth will help you to meet the requirements set in the SAMHSA Funding Opportunity Announcement. If you are interested in applying for funding or are looking into grant opportunities, now is the time to upgrade to ThinkHealth EHR. To view our EHR Certification click the link for ICSA Labs
