The organization's diverse team, consisting of psychiatrists, psychologists, and mental health experts, works collaboratively to develop tailored treatment strategies for patients managing a spectrum of psychiatric conditions.

Business challenges

Recognizing the importance of efficient and streamlined healthcare operations, the client contacted us to streamline their workflows and improve the efficiency and accuracy of patient data documentation. The organization faced problems managing its practice operations, such as appointment scheduling, patient management, and other financials for their Psychiatric service provider. Additionally, they wanted to add telehealth, e-prescriptions, and assessments with custom clinical notes.

Thinkitive Solution

A team of business analysts and SMEs had several meetings with clients to gather complete requirements. Based on the gathered client requirements, the team has developed a feature list that describes the project scope. That feature list was presented to the client, and after some iterations, we got approval from the client.

With the approved feature list, the team has started developing an EMR solution for the psychiatric specialty. To achieve this solution, our team has delivered multiple key features that help healthcare professionals to streamline their practice operations.
