West Bergen Mental Healthcare, a mental health services agency headquartered in Ridgewood, NJ, has partnered with Patagonia Health, Inc. Patagonia Health, a member of the NJAMHAA Information Technology Council, will support West Bergen’s comprehensive behavioral health services with their cloud-based Electronic Health Record, Practice Management and Billing solution.
During the EHR selection process, West Bergen sought a partner to deliver on key requirements, including a streamlined billing process with connections to NJ Medicaid, Medicare and commercial payers, an intuitive reporting platform and interoperability with New Jersey systems. Patagonia Health’s federally-certified solution fit this criteria and is scalable to meet the needs of West Bergen’s more than 200 users.
“On behalf of West Bergen Mental Healthcare, I am excited to announce our partnership with Patagonia Health,” said Michael Tozzoli, West Bergen’s CEO. “We feel adopting this best of breed EHR system will further our ultimate goal of meeting the psychological needs of our clients with sensitivity and responsive, innovative services. Patagonia Health understands the unique work flow, connectivity, billing, and reporting requirements for behavioral health facilities in New Jersey.”
“We know moving to a new system will be a big undertaking for our agency, but I am confident moving forward with the team at Patagonia Health,” added Karen Acker, Administrative Director/Compliance Officer at West Bergen. “Their high-touch implementation and training model will provide us with the support we need throughout the process.”
“We are very excited to bring Patagonia Health’s comprehensive solution to our partners at West Bergen,” Amos Slaymaker, VP of Sales and Marketing at Patagonia Health, said. “With our easy-to-learn technology and our award-winning service, we know we will forge a solid relationship with West Bergen that will support the delivery of behavioral health services throughout their county and across New Jersey.”
