Great River, NY — Netsmart Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of software and services for health and human services organizations, today announced agreements with five private, not-for-profit behavioral healthcare organizations in Florida for implementation of Netsmart's Avatar electronic health record (EHR) and practice management software solutions.

Three of the contracts are with organizations new to Netsmart, and the other two organizations are transitioning from their current Netsmart software solution.

"We're pleased to be the technology partner of choice for behavioral healthcare in Florida," said James L. Conway, chief executive officer, Netsmart Technologies. "We appreciate the confidence this demonstrates in our expertise and solutions, and the level of trust these providers place in us to help them deliver outstanding care to the thousands of clients they serve."

Circles of Care in Melbourne, Child Guidance Center in Jacksonville, Henderson Mental Health Center in Fort Lauderdale, Northside Mental Health Center in Tampa, and Solutions for Administrative Services, Inc., in Pinellas Park each selected Netsmart's Avatar CWS (Clinician Workstation), Avatar PM (Practice Management) and other Netsmart products. Avatar CWS is comprehensive EHR software that integrates the clinical tools necessary for an interdisciplinary approach to the delivery of care. Avatar PM is a modular, customizable practice management software solution that efficiently manages key processes, including scheduling, billing and treatment planning.

The provider organizations cited the outstanding level of service provided by Netsmart staff, from development to customer support to implementation, the strength of the company, its collaborative approach to customer relationships, and the widespread adoption of Netsmart's Avatar product as significant factors in their selection of the Avatar solution. In addition, Netsmart solutions enable its customers to meet the criteria for Medicaid and Medicare incentive funds for the "meaningful use" of an EHR.

Included in Netsmart's collaborative approach to its customer community is the opportunity to participate in Netsmart Community, a professional networking Web site exclusively for Netsmart users to share ideas, best practices, and peer-to-peer tips on how to get the most out of their Netsmart software. Netsmart's user groups, online customer support and knowledge base also offer each organization resources to help them get the most out of their Netsmart solutions.
