OPEN MINDS & Netsmart Host Free Webinar on Policy Updates & the Foundations of Value-Based Care

Join OPEN MINDS & Netsmart for this educational web briefing on June 1 at 2 p.m. ET to hear how to prepare for value-based care in the constantly changing human services landscape

GETTYSBURG, PA--(Marketwired - May 15, 2017) - Change in healthcare is constant and, at times, uncertain. In today's world, there are even more questions: What is the future of the Affordable Care Act (ACA)? What changes can we expect with the American Health Care Act (AHCA)? Will there be new limitations? What about effects on the community, providers and consumers -- or potentially, parity? Some things are certain: human services organizations will continue to be required to integrate with health systems and other community-based providers.

Join Monica Oss, chief executive officer at OPEN MINDS, and Kevin Scalia, executive vice president of Corporate Development at Netsmart, on June 1 at 2 p.m. ET for "Policy Update & Foundations Of Value-Based Care," a discussion of current and potential policies and their convergence with value-based care.

In this 90-minute executive web briefing, learn the answers to foundational value-based care questions, such as:

  • What is value-based care and what types of value-based care programs exist?
  • How does value-based care affect human services organizations?
  • What does my organization need to do to prepare for value-based care?
  • How does assuming increased risk and accountability associated with value-based care impact business strategy?

At the conclusion of the webinar, all registrants will receive (at no charge and regardless of attendance) a recording of the webinar and an electronic copy of the presentation slides.
