Capital Facilities and Technological Needs (CFTN)

Implemented in 2009, the San Luis Obispo County's Capital Facilities and Technological Needs (CFTN) work plan involves the development of the county’s electronic health record (using Cerner/Anasazi programs). This system's goal is to increase technological capacity to improve mental illness service delivery. Funds were implemented in 2009 to transform clinical and administrative information systems, a Behavioral Health Electronic Health Record (BHEHR) System, allowing for a "secure, real-time, point-of-care, client-centric information resource for service providers" and the exchange of client information.
