Echo Group & OPEN MINDS Collaborate To Offer Free Web Briefing On The Excellence In Mental Health Act & The Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) Process

Free registration now open for special 90-minute web briefing scheduled for November 17th at 2:00pm ET

GETTYSBURG, PA--(Marketwired - October 31, 2016) - The Excellence in Mental Health Act (EMHA) is comprehensive legislation written specifically for the behavioral health care industry. The spirit of the act provides a renewed focus on the quality of delivery and person-centered care. Health care professionals must understand that the quality objectives in the EMHA are not a directive on how to provide care, but rather benchmarks designed to support a facility's ability to provide every client a standard of care regardless of his or her circumstance.

Join The Echo Group's Senior Knowledge Engineer, Suki Norris, on Thursday, November 17 at 2:00pm ET for an information packed web briefing that will explore the opportunities within the EMHA. During this session, Ms. Norris will also provide a practical framework using the certified community behavioral health clinic (CCBHC) process to realize the opportunities available through the EHMA. This session will also review the organizational and technological infrastructure necessary to leverage opportunities in CCBHCs.

This 90-minute executive web briefing will enable attendees to:

  • Understand the Excellence in Mental Health Act and CCBHCs
  • Identify the organizational and technological infrastructure required to leverage opportunities in CCBHCs
  • Examine opportunities within the Excellence in Mental Health Act and how to leverage them
