Psychiatry Workflow Solutions
WRS Psychiatry EMR includes essential content and tools, including DSM-IV-R / DSM-V, as well as the functionality important to Behavioral Health practices such as e-Rx, electronic connectivity with labs for sending orders and receiving results via the EMR and the ability to generate patient and financial reports.
Designed by a practicing physician and shaped by Psychiatrists and other Behavioral Health specialists, WRS EMR gives providers the ability to chart and track assessments, treatment plans, medications, progress notes and more while still keeping their full attention on the patient.
Psychiatry-Specific Notes Enable Quick Charting
WRS Psychiatry EMR Supports All Common Behavioral Health Encounters, Offers a Choice of Charting Methods
WRS Psychiatry EMR is pre-loaded with the content used by mental and behavioral health specialists and sub-specialists, including DSM-IV-R / DSM-V criteria, and that content is organized to enable you to efficiently chart evaluations, therapy sessions, follow-up visits and other encounters.
For example, the Comprehensive Initial Psychiatric Exam note template is structured to facilitate the capture of a full Psychiatric inventory including Review of Systems; Medical and Social histories; Psychiatric, Substance Abuse and Psychiatric Social histories; Psychiatric Exam elements of general appearance, speech reasoning and mental status; and DSM AXIS and plan.
All WRS Psychiatry note templates are pre-populated with commonly used content, enable charting with a minimum of clicks (or via voice recognition) and can accept free text.
Numerical data including lab values, weight and BMI can be quickly entered and tracked over time as tables or graphs, according to your preference.
Additionally, since no two behavioral health practitioners have exactly the same charting needs or styles, we provide our 6-Tier Customization Engine. It enables you to quickly establish your own library of templates that suite your practice focus, assessment and treatment preferences and charting style.

Psychiatry Medication Management Provides Important Safeguards
EMR Creates Efficiencies so You Can Focus on Your Patient
The growth in the number of psychopharmacologic agents available has increased therapeutic options but also complicated treatment. The Psychiatry EMR automates the routine aspects of medication management, saving time, reducing risks and freeing you to focus on the patient.
Medication history is captured and included as part of the patient record enabling you to quickly see medications that have been previously tried and to identify potential drug-seeking behavior. Available are:
- Medications prescribed by your practice
- Medications prescribed by other practices and filled under the patient’s insurance plan
- Medications self-reported by the patient via the integrated patient portal
Updates, such as archiving medications for which the course of therapy has been completed, are made with just a few clicks.
- E-prescribing eliminates the error risks associated with handwritten scripts as well as the potential for a patient to request a replacement for a lost paper script. With WRS Psychiatry EMR, e-prescribing is set up for maximum efficiency. Your 10 most frequently prescribed medications are presented. Choose one, or enter a different medication and the standard sig fields automatically populate. The script can then be sent to a pharmacy of the patient's choice.
Interaction checking is important for all specialties, but even more so in Psychiatry where the volume of patients treated with multiple medications and complex regimens makes medication management a particular challenge. When a script is written via the WRS Psychiatry EMR, checks automatically occur and alerts may be triggered for
- Drug-drug interactions
- Drug-condition/disease interactions
The alerts are informational and the prescriber can choose to continue with the current script when appropriate.
- Recalls and Health Maintenance Reminders can easily be set for lithium, tricyclic antidepressants, clozapine and other medications that require therapeutic monitoring and ongoing lab work. Your practice determines the protocols, and WRS will automatically alert patients by phone and/or email. When labs are ordered, WRS exclusive Order Tracking System monitors the status, alerts you to any actions needed and documents patient communications.

Getting Paid for the Services You Perform Is as Easy as 1, 2, 3
WRS Health links every part of your practice together so that you can get paid for all your services quickly and accurately.
When a patient appointment is scheduled, insurance eligibility is automatically checked 72 hours prior to the appointment and again every 4 hours until the appointment time. Coverage information flows into the patient record, and your practice is prompted to collect copayments and coinsurance at check-in. For patients who carry a balance, invoices are automated.
WRS keeps current with ICD and CPT codes, including add-on codes, and keeps them updated in the Psychiatry EMR and Practice Management system.
When you chart a visit, the charge seamlessly flows to the claim for submission without the need for re-keying on your claims. Paper superbills and dual entry of data are eliminated.
Electronic deposits and automatic payment are integrated within the system. Electronic payment happens on average two weeks sooner than paper checks, which has a dramatic impact on your cash flow.
Mitigate the Risks Inherent to Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Practice
Highest Security Certifications in the EMR Industry

Time-stamped logs are automatically created for Security, Clinical and Emergency access. Each log entry includes the date and time, event, user name and user IP address so you know the who, what and where of anyone accessing your practice.
Automated Patient Recalls and Health Maintenance Reminders
WRS Health has automated the process of recalling patients for follow-ups and sending Health Maintenance Reminders for, urinanalysis, blood work and other tests and screenings. Alerts are programmed in and can then be modified based on practice preference and commonly accepted psychiatric clinical guidelines.Your practice determines the protocols and WRS will automatically alert patients by phone, SMS or email.
Easily Track Lab Orders, Results and Patient Compliance
Psychiatric medications, while helpful, can have potentially life-threatening side effects. WRS exclusive Order Tracking System makes it easy to monitor whether patients have complied with vital lab orders and to follow up. For example, patients at risk for neutropenia who haven’t acted on a Complete Blood Count within a set period of time can automatically receive follow up emails and phone calls.
As with Health Maintenance Reminders, your practice determines the parameters and the patient outreach occurs automatically. Additionally, the tests ordered, results and patient communications are all documented in the system.
