Our participation in the SUD PIP Program has so far led NewBridge Providers to receive an ADT alert on a client who was hospitalized for medical reasons. Our Providers look forward to continuing to receive notifications from hospitals as this enables them to connect with the client in a timely manner and provide appropriate mental health care after a hospitalization. The availability of a client portal in our ONC Certified EHR has enabled clients to not only communicate with our Eligible Providers regarding their medications and other health-related matters, but also to view their crucial health information such as past and current vital signs, details of their prescriptions, and dates of past psychiatric appointments. Having the e-prescribing system and the NJ Prescription Monitoring Program integrated in our EHR has enabled our Eligible Providers to monitor clients’ medications effectively, to counsel them, and to prescribe appropriately controlled substances.
