Collaborative Care Registry Requirements
Registry tools that support Collaborative Care vary widely in their sophistication, functionality, cost, and scalability.
Many clinics begin their Collaborative Care programs using a spreadsheet as a registry. The AIMS Center offers a patient tracking template for providers to use. Registry IT tools includes the AIMS online, HIPAA compliant Care Management Tracking System (CMTS) or AIMS Depression Tracker that are particularly useful for healthcare organizations that include multiple EHRs and diverse practices. Some organizations are pursuing customized registry builds for their EHR or in a care management software system.
Whichever option is selected, it is important that the registry incorporates the key functions as described in the AIMS Center's Collaborative Care registry requirements.
