PIMSY offers IOP (Intensive Outpatient) functionality

PUBLISHED ON: 11.03.2016

In addition to providing robust inpatient functionality, PIMSY also offers features for IOP (Intensive Outpatient), PHP (partial hospitalization program), and PRP (Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program) treatment.

Mental health treatment spans a continuum of care, from counseling to psychiatric drug monitoring; from foster care and group homes; to eating disorder and substance use treatment. As a behavioral health EHR, PIMSY has had to adapt to each of these specialties. PIMSY must enable organizations in these various fields – with their broad spectrum of unique management needs – to be efficient, streamlined, and effective.

PIMSY’s flexibility accomplishes just that, empowering our customers to tailor and customize the system to their specifications. As part of working with them to achieve their goals, we’ve created standard functionality to serve PHP, PRP, and IOP agencies.

PIMSY offers IOP & Mental Health EHR

Like most niches of behavioral health treatment, IOP and PHP create some unique needs. Patients typically spend their day at an agency receiving services. In order for the facility to bill, they have to reach a certain a threshold of the amount of time they’re receiving treatment: reach the threshold in order to bill for the day.

PIMSY’s IOP Functionality

// When there are multiple services performed & documented on a client that are not billable themselves, but instead create a billable occurrence, PIMSY can accommodate this billing.

// Clinicians individually log the different services they perform – and PIMSY automatically determines if a client has met their threshold for each day, checking it against their available authorizations. If the threshold is exceeded, PIMSY automatically generates the claim.

// This makes it easier for providers to complete their documentation, not having to worry about whether or not the threshold has been met, who needs to create the note for the billable IOP or PHP note, etc.

Clinicians focus on providing services and documenting their time; PIMSY automatically does the rest.

// Like with most other features in PIMSY, the agency sets the parameters: how long after services PIMSY checks and creates the claim; what constitutes the threshold and duration for each client; are the claims automatically released, or do they need to be reviewed before submitted for reimbursement?

With PIMSY, we train you on how to set these considerations, and empower you to calibrate PIMSY to meet your facility’s specifications.
