The Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation announced that it will be working with IT supplier Cerner Corp. to implement an electronic health record system throughout the organization.

The organization hopes that the move may help streamline care, and better enable workers to understand addicted populations.

Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation and Cerner will collaborate towards a supplement to Cerner's behavioral health offering with a recovery management program called My Ongoing Recovery Experience (MORE). The structured program will be delivered through a patient portal coupled with recovery coach engagement to encourage the participants to continue learning and engaging in their recovery as they re-enter the community.

"Addiction is a chronic disease that, if left untreated, costs the United States economy billions of dollars each year in health care costs and lost productivity," said Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation President and CEO Mark Mishek. "Partnering with an enormously well-respected technology provider like Cerner, which shares our vision for bringing behavioral health solutions into the care continuum, will enable us to reach more people and be a greater force for help and healing."
