MHY to Implement Electronic Health Record System With Grant From Staunton Farm Foundation
MHY Family Services, a nonprofit located in Western Pennsylvania, received a $24,000 grant from Staunton Farm Foundation.
The Staunton Farm Foundation grant will also allow MHY to assemble a team within the agency to build, train and implement its new EHR system and provide enhanced, quality services to youth and families through data driven knowledge.
"Research has shown that EHR training can help us avoid errors, employee turnover and other general frustrations while facilitating a smooth transition from a paper system to an electronic system," said Amy Smith, MHY's Director of Development. "Our trauma-informed approach will be greatly enhanced through effective EHR software staff training. Improving all aspects of client care, including safety, effectiveness, patient-centeredness, communication, education, timeliness, efficiency and equity, is the ultimate goal."
