Askesis Signs First Client in Tennessee

Ridgeview Behavioral Health Services has selected Askesis Development Group — a leading provider of state-of-the-art software solutions supporting service delivery and business management excellence in health and human services organizations — to provide a technology solution for their mental health services operations. Ridgeview provides a variety of mental health services for adults and children -- and is Askesis’ first client in the state of Tennessee.

Ridgeview chose Askesis’ flagship product, PsychConsult® Provider SaaS, to support its wide range of mental health inpatient, outpatient, and crisis services and operations. In its move to a new software solution, Ridgeview executives wanted a software solution that supports both its inpatient operations and its community-based services.

“Ridgeview is excited about working with Askesis. The Individuals we serve deserve the best and we are confident that PsychConsult is just that, The Best!” said Brian Buuck, chief executive officer at Ridgeview Behavioral Health.

Ridgeview provides a wide spectrum of mental health services for both adults and children, including inpatient psychiatric care, services for children and youth, community support programs, and adult outpatient services. All of these services support Ridgeview’s mission to provide a high quality regional system of services focused on the treatment of mental illness and alcohol and drug related problems, prevention services, social services, and support to individuals and families, as well as striving to improve the quality of life for the individuals they serve.
