GETTYSBURG, PA--(Marketwired - May 13, 2016) -  Data analytics. Population health management. Value-based purchasing. These buzz words appear day in and day out in the health and human services industry, but do you know what they mean and how they affect your organization? Even if you know the lingo, implementing the practices and programs to keep up with the ever-changing landscape can be difficult, and finding the right tools to use can be challenging. It takes a number of technologies and data analytics programs working together to successfully operate and implement the new initiatives needed to remain sustainable and successful in the changing marketplace.

Join us on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 at 2:00pm EDT for an exclusive executive web briefing to hear OPEN MINDS Senior Associate, Brandon Danz, share insights on recent trends, relevant technologies, and data analytics tools for managing population health in the health and human services field. And don't miss hearing a unique case study presentation on the strategies utilized by the Oakland County Community Mental Health Authority (OCCMHA) in Michigan for successful data-driven population health management. OCCMHA leads a provider service network that assists more than 27,000 Oakland County citizens (mostly covered by Medicaid) in over 300 service sites. The OCCMHA's provider network provides public mental health services to individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities, mental illness, and substance use disorders, as well as children with emotional disturbance.

Joining the web briefing from OCCMHA will be Nicole Lawson, the mental health authority's clinical administrator, as well as Carol Duncan Clayton, who is CEO of Care Management Technologies (CMT) and provides Oakland County's population health technology platform. OCCMHA uses the claims data, clinical data, and evidence-based algorithms in CMT's ProAct solution to assist with identifying care gaps and improving care coordination. Through the use of ProAct, OCCMHA is able to make decisions on best practices to implement for managing and serving complex patients and populations.

During this 90-minute executive web briefing, attendees will:

  • Gain a working definition of population health and the variety of technology tools (and data analytics programs) that support population health activities
  • Understand how population health management drives shifts in organizational activities
  • Determine why data inside and outside the organization are valuable when providing population health management
  • Learn how to tie cost data to outcomes and clinical data for population health and value-based purchasing shifts
