Free Executive Web Briefing Courtesy Of Genoa Healthcare

As behavioral health providers increasingly move toward value-based arrangements, community mental health centers must seek ways to demonstrate progress in key performance metrics to payers. Help is available from an unexpected sector: pharmacy.

Integrated pharmacies such as Genoa Healthcare can help CMHCs traverse the road from volume to value by providing services, data and support that lead to measurably better outcomes.


In this web briefing, Dr. Steve Ronik, CEO of Henderson Behavioral Health, and Melissa Odorzynski, EVP and General Manager at Genoa Healthcare, will discuss how community mental health centers can leverage their pharmacy partners. They will also discuss real-life examples of how successful provider-pharmacy partnerships resulted in measurable improvements in health care outcomes.
