Bayless Behavioral Health Teams Up With Axxess Unlimited to Launch Online Portal for Mental Health Patients


May 12, 2011 - PHOENIX, AZ

Bayless Behavioral Health Solutions (BHS), a leading Phoenix-based provider of behavioral health services, worked with Axxess Unlimited to develop and pilot a revolutionary portal for collecting and sharing information on behavioral health patients. The Clear Care portal, designed by Axxess Unlimited, a web development company that specializes in business-to-government and business-to-business solutions, will give mental health professionals, medical facilities, schools, community centers, and family care givers instant access to the latest information on a patient's treatment.

The Bayless module, a component of Clear Care, was configured to integrate seamlessly into behavioral health professionals' workflow while allowing other authorized users 24/7 online access to patient progress reports. The secure portal will be available to Bayless' partners and provide real-time updates on patients' emotional, functional, and psychiatric health as well as interactions with staff members and other residents.

"Our facilities often admit patients without having a complete history of their previous treatment or experiences. We assisted Axxess Unlimited in an innovative new portal that removes the existing information barriers between social service providers, educators, community service providers, and medical providers," said Bayless BHS president, Justin Bayless. "This portal will enable the electronic and secure data exchange among providers, resulting in better collaborative patient care."

Benefits of this proprietary technology include:

  • Instant 24/7 access to clinical information for intended users from any service delivery location.
  • Reduction, and ultimately elimination of time spent indexing, storing, and retrieving paper behavioral health records.
  • Better patient care through access to client history, treatment protocols, and reference information to support appropriate clinical decisions.

The Clear Care portal is available to all organizations involved in providing mental health services, including mental health professionals/providers, case managers, probation officers, skilled nursing facilities, educators, assisted living facilities, health and insurance plans, and private practices.

"Bayless' longstanding relationship with the community and their outstanding therapists provided our IT team with the framework for building a truly unique program," said Michael Roth, CEO of Axxess Unlimited. "This is the only behavioral health portal that allows for coordinated, collaborative care in real-time. It is HIPAA compliant and saves healthcare organizations money while providing better care."

"Until now we have not had an easily accessible tool to access our neighbor's comprehensive psychological and behavioral care plan. Through our partnership with Bayless, we are excited for clinicians to implement the healthcare technology platform and eventually integrate the data into our electronic health record," said Maravilla Care Center Administrator Jeffreys B. Barrett, N.H.A.

The BHS Clear Care portal is available free of charge to all referring community agencies for the first year of use, except for health and insurance plans, mental health providers, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, and group homes.
