April 19, 2016 — Free Executive Web Briefing Sponsored By Core Solutions Inc.

To become a leading technology-driven healthcare organization, it’s important to not only visualize how the future state of your organization will operate, but to create the physical manifestation of those ideas. This includes aligning major milestones and emerging policy issues with your organization’s mission, values, and priorities. In order to do this, organizations need to be aware of and find the opportunities available in new policy initiatives announced by government agencies.

Join David Wanser, Co-Director of the JBS International Center for Sustainable Health & Care and Ravi Ganesan, President of Core Solutions Inc. on Tuesday, April 19th for this 90-minute executive web briefing to hear the implications of recent policy initiatives announced by the Department of Health and Human Services agencies, including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).  During this unique online event, our faculty will showcase how you can utilize these policy issues to better your organization and improve your efforts to increase client engagement and integrate care.


Don’t miss this exclusive 90-minute session that will show you how to leverage the opportunities in recent policy initiatives to improve your organization! During this event, attendees will:

  • Learn how to utilize emerging policy opportunities to further their organization’s efforts to increase client engagement and integrate care through a range of funding and technology options
  • Recognize the technology options needed to help their organization gain a competitive advantage
  • Gain insights into which additional policy developments are likely to be of interest to them in upcoming months
