EHR leaders add suicide risk assessment form

Six leading electronic health record companies are incorporating CAMS-care's Suicide Status Form, a tool used to assess and treat patients with suicidal thoughts.

Epic Systems, Netsmart Technologies, inSync, Psyquel, bhworks and NeuroFlow are adding the assessment to their EHR platforms, according to a Sept. 21 news release from the company.

"There are over 30,000 clinicians trained in the CAMS Framework and the Suicide Status Form. Increasing access to treatment by these providers will save lives through effective care," Andrew Evans, CAMS-care president and COO, said in the release.

The Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS) is designed to more accurately identify patients at risk of suicide, and provides evidence-based treatment plans specifically for those experiencing suicidal thoughts, according to the release.
