OPEN MINDS & Netsmart to Host Webinar on Interoperability and Value-Based Payment Models

Join OPEN MINDS & Netsmart for this educational web briefing on November 3 at 2:00pm ET to learn how interoperability plays a crucial role in clinical and organizational success in value-based payment models

GETTYSBURG, PA--(Marketwired - October 17, 2016) - Whole-person care requires partnerships and treatment models that support physical and behavioral health, as well as the social services an individual may need to achieve wellness and recovery. In a value-based payment model, interoperability is a key component, requiring organizations to establish policies that support information exchange of health information, including compliance with confidentiality and privacy standards, and intuitive, seamless connections across multiple organizations. By making data accessible, organizations not only meet these requirements, but also gain valuable insights to drive clinical decision making.

On Thursday, November 3 at 2:00pm ET, join Matthew Chamberlain, Senior Associate, OPEN MINDS, and AJ Peterson, General Manager/Senior Director, CareConnect & myHealthpointe, Netsmart, for the third event in Netsmart's value-based payment executive webinar series (View the first two events of the series at: Value Based Payment Models Webinar - How did we get here and why now? and Human Services Strategies in Value-Based Payment Models). The Nov. 3 event will showcase how interoperability can be utilized for success with value-based payment models, such as Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs).

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

  • Key interoperability approaches that address the clinical and operational needs for connecting organizations across the human services spectrum
  • How interoperability can help behavioral health and human services provider organizations share referral info or clinical data with health systems, correctional facilities, and other behavioral health and addiction treatment providers
  • How to leverage integrated technologies to extend care team collaboration outside the four walls of your organization, supporting not only clinical document exchange but secure direct messaging
  • Questions to ask as your organization's prepares to embrace the value-based payment model, and where to focus your efforts in further developing the ability to share -- and use -- data to help improve outcomes and enhance strategic decision-making

Value-based care models, such as the CCBHC program, are driving the health and human services community to integrate behavioral, social, and physical care in a collaborative way. Are you ready to take part?
