HALF DAY PRECONFERENCE UNIVERSITY
Behavioral Health-Primary Care Integration: The Next Frontier
Sunday, May 4 from 1 pm to 5 pm
For more than a decade, the National Council for Mental Wellbeing has helped providers implement bidirectional integration in their communities. Now, what’s the next step for organizations with functioning integration? How do they measure the impact of their integration efforts? Are they getting the consumer outcomes they expected? What’s next as healthcare reform continues its rollout?
Join national experts and other integrated healthcare veterans to identify what specific aspects of integration are working and how your benchmarks compare to other participants, using a process benchmarking approach. Expect a great deal of interaction, as well as discussion of how to use the benchmarking process after the conference.
National experts will identify the next steps in enhancing integration efforts, as well as focus on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid’s health home and accreditation requirements (e.g., NCQA, CARF) for integrated healthcare, care coordination, and patient satisfaction. The speakers will also use examples from the field to discuss approaches to measuring cost effectiveness.
Designed for organizations with at least five years experience in integration, this preconference institute will feature thought leaders from across the country and their predictions for the future of bidirectional integration, health homes, and the behavioral health network of integrated providers.
