Individuals regularly move between hospital and community-based treatment, yet there is little to no electronic data exchange between provider organizations. We know that needs to change, but the communication barriers between disparate electronic health record systems seem insurmountable.

To learn more about how organizations are overcoming these communication barriers and connecting with provider organizations to share individuals’ data with the purpose of creating better outcomes, OPEN MINDS and Netsmart are hosting a special online event, “Coordinating Care To Improve Outcomes & Reduce Costs: Integrating With Acute Care Hospitals As A First Step” on July 10 at 1:00 PM EDT. Join us as Kevin Scalia, Executive Vice President of Corporate Development at Netsmart and Dr. Steven Ronik, Chief Executive Officer at Henderson Behavioral Health discuss how Henderson Behavioral Health, a behavioral health organization, is meaningfully exchanging health information in a first-of-a-kind collaboration with Memorial Healthcare System, an acute care hospital that uses Epic software.


During this 90- minute executive development session attendees will:

  • See why the latest market trends are shifting integration from “suggested” to “essential”
  • Hear how Henderson Behavioral Health overcame integration challenges and HIE barriers to form a successful exchange with acute care providers
  • Get insight and advice on how to identify your organization’s potential ‘trading partners’ – and learn how you can initiate the dialogue
