LWSI, provider of healthcare information technology (HIT) solutions for behavioral healthcare agencies, has announced that both Life Help–Region VI and Region IV Mental Health Services have purchased Essentia, an Electronic Health Records (EHR) solution designed by LWSI to meet the specific workflows of behavioral health agencies and deliver the information, features, and functionality most important to their success.

Essentia’s solution offers the ability to track multiple areas of each client including: scheduling, clinical documentation, EHR, financial, human services, electronic billing and electronic prescriptions.

“At Life Help, we strive to assist individuals in overcoming life's challenges with compassionate care, and we are delighted to move forward with LWSI as our partner in that mission,” said Executive Director, Madolyn Smith. “While the broad capabilities of Essentia were far superior to other behavioral health systems we explored, it was LWSI’s attitude toward meeting our unique needs that really impressed our team. With Essentia being so user-friendly, we anticipate swift adoption throughout Life Help.”

“Region IV Mental Health Services has long been an innovation leader providing the highest quality care in Mississippi,” said Charlie Spearman, Sr., Executive Director. “Essentia is the most comprehensive and integrated behavioral health solution available, and we are confident it will help us realize greater efficacy in our daily operations and enhance the services we offer for the constituencies we serve. By far, LWSI was the obvious choice for Region IV. With Essentia, we look forward to gaining more efficiency and greater control on costs, while putting state of the art technology in the hands of our professionals.”
