Avatar is the treatment tracking system for Sacramento County's Mental Health and Alcohol and Drug Divisions. The Avatar application is accessible over the internet.

Avatar incorporates Sacramento Health Information Exchange (SacHIE) as the implementation of a new, secure and certified, interoperable electronic health record system that includes electronic prescribing, laboratory ordering and results delivery, treatment and assessment plan automation, and connectivity to a personal health record.

These technologies will support the services outlined in the CSS plan through better data sharing and client and family member access to services.

The phases of the project are intended to enable secure data sharing to improve the quality of care through the use of technology such as medication reconciliation tools to prevent medication errors, the use of lab ordering and results delivery to improve the time for diagnosis and treatment and electronic sharing of treatment plans with clients and family and other caregivers.
