Echo’s VHR is Jefferson County, Wisconsin HSD EHR choice


CONWAY, NH – The Jefferson County, Wisconsin Department of Human Services has selected the Echo Group’s exclusive Visual Health Record (VHR) to provide comprehensive Electronic Health Record and Billing software services.

Echo’s VHR is the single-source solution that will enable the Jefferson County Human Services Department to review and streamline its workflow, improve operating efficiencies that will, in turn, improve customer service.

“Echo has been fantastic to work with,” says Kathi Cauley, Director of the Jefferson County Human Services Department. “They answer questions in a straightforward manner. They are genuine and true experts about their product and the field. Each Echo employee we have interacted with has been exceedingly helpful. We are moving ahead with our project exactly as described and in a very timely fashion! We could not be more pleased.”

Echo’s Visual Health Record provides the tools Jefferson County DHS will need to improve client care and to track performance and implementation to the key Wisconsin data collection initiative, the Program Participation System.

Echo will support their ability to manage risk and compliance issues with Wisconsin Medicaid and BadgerCare Plus and provide  the tools and experience to accommodate Wisconsin’s ever-evolving state and payer requirements.

The Echo Group’s Visual Health Record is the first and only EHR enabling users to view client activity on a single screen with a visual story that enables deeper insight and better quality of care.
