I work in behavior health and we operate out of LWSI that was bought out by Netsmart. I have absolutely have nothing good to say about LWSI. Netsmart wasted their money on buying out LWSI. They should actually do away with LWSI because it is not worth a penny!
TIME CONSUMING for both therapist and client. Takes a long time to load (or pull up) documents (i.e. treatment plan, case notes, and etc.) Lack of easy access to EVERYTHING you have to click on this item to get to another and so-on. If a mistake is made, it is not easy to fix or you have to go throug and act of congress to fix it.

The support for this product is good and the application is generally accepted as easy to use.
The customization ability is a little limited. Some of the company reorganization caused gaps in continuity and confusion. The public health portion of this software (Insight) appears only a second priority to the other mental health suite of software.
Analyze the backend configuration, learn about the development language the UI was created with and understand your needs in comparison to the capacity of the software to identify gaps.
