OPEN MINDS & Netsmart Host Free Webinar on Utilizing Evidence-Based Practices & Analytics for Success with Value-Based Care Models

Join OPEN MINDS & Netsmart for this educational web briefing on December 6 at 2:00 p.m. ET to learn practical strategies and tactics for achieving quality outcomes and reducing cost of care

GETTYSBURG, PA--(Marketwired - November 14, 2016) - Evidence-based practices (EBPs) are often mandated or suggested as part of value-based care models. It is widely believed that the use of specific EBPs will drive providers to achieve better outcomes. Many of these EBP models are interdisciplinary -- traversing across the entire human services continuum -- which can make managing value-based payments complex.

Analytics can help!

Analytics support the rollout and measurement of EBPs and EBP effectiveness across an organization. Analytics also provide insight into common characteristics of populations served.

On Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 2:00 p.m. ET, join Joe Naughton-Travers, senior associate at OPEN MINDS and Scott Green, SVP/general manager, CareGuidance at Netsmart, for the fourth and final event in Netsmart's Value-Based Payment executive webinar series. This event will provide the strategies needed to track revenue, cost, and quality outcomes, along with practical tactics for monitoring process adherence and performance.

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

  • Strategies to track outcomes related to revenue, cost, and quality
  • Practical tactics for monitoring not only process adherence, but for effective performance management, strategic planning and operational decision-making
  • Ways to overlay the effectiveness of EBP to specific data groupings within an organization

As the human services community continues to integrate behavioral, social and physical care in a collaborative way, does your organization have the right tools to proactively meet the challenges ahead?
