Can We Afford a Case Management Solution?

“We are a small to mid size company offering therapy and rehab services to community-based clients. We are considering whether a Case Management Solution (CMS) will be useful to us and, more importantly, whether we can afford it. Currently, we use a combination of paper-based files, Google, Outlook, MS Word on our local network, where we also store reports and other documents. We use QuickBooks for Accounting. Our session notes are done on paper template forms. We have just started to scan and store these forms on the server. Oh, we also use the HCAI website to submit plans and invoices to insurance companies. What we do now works fine although an increasing number of our competitors have invested in a CMS. Can we afford a Solution and how do we benefit?”
