Learn About WITS
FEI’s primary area of Health IT application development occurs through our work with 28 states and counties to deliver an open-source system called Web Infrastructure for Treatment Services (WITS) to track substance abuse and mental health services.
WITS meets the growing need to capture client treatment data and satisfy mandatory government reporting requirements for the planning, administration, and monitoring of Substance Abuse Treatment Programs. WITS facilitates cooperation and collaboration among providers by enabling the sharing of client treatment information via the web.
WITS consists of numerous clinical, administrative and reporting modules that are organized by the workflow process giving any organization a great deal of control to customize their system.
For more information about WITS or to schedule a demo, please contact Jennifer Conrad at firstname.lastname@example.org
