Streamline Healthcare Solutions (Streamline) and West Texas Centers, a Texas Community Center located in Big Spring, Texas, have formalized a partnership to supply the agency’s next Electronic Health Record (EHR) platform. West Texas Centers will be using SmartCare as their EHR for their Mental Health and Intellectual and Developmental Disability (IDD) programs, as well as the billing agent for their Early Childhood Intervention program. SmartCare will provide West Texas Centers with a complete Texas Ready platform for all levels of care, allowing all staff to document in the EHR, automate processes, promoting interoperability and support the Center as they become a CCBHC.

West Texas Centers offers services to individuals and families with issues related to mental health, intellectual and development disabilities, and early intervention for children under the age of three. The Center is excited to partner with Streamline to provide exceptional care to their consumers in the most efficient way possible. Streamline’s ease of use, functionality, and reporting capabilities will allow for staff at the center to best serve our community.

Streamline and West Texas Centers will work together to map their workflows within SmartCare to meet Texas state reporting and CCBHC requirements. These will include managing the TRR process, utilizing the SmartCare IDD Golden Thread and expanding the SmartCare IDD form library, CARE Batching, Encounter Batching and more.

Jessie Campbell, CFO of West Texas Centers, stated, “We are very excited to partner with SmartCare for an industry-leading software solution that is going to significantly improve the delivery of our services. SmartCare knows Texas, and they know our business, and we can’t wait to provide our clients with a modernized platform for their health record.

Streamline is proud to welcome West Texas Centers as our 18th Texas MHMR Center, to our growing list of Texas providers. SmartCare is a great fit, because the platform adheres to both Texas and national reporting and interoperability standards. We look forward to this partnership and our continued growth in Texas,” David Ryland, Co-CEO of Streamline Healthcare Solutions.
