October 30, 2014 – Free Executive Web Briefing Sponsored By Netsmart

This event has passed. Slides and video from this event can be found here.

Big changes affecting health care providers and members of the human services community are occurring and without preparation, many health care activities will be impacted. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fifth edition (DSM-5), was released in May 2013 and adoption varies state by state. The switch to the International Classification of Diseases, 10th revision (ICD-10), code sets used to report clinical diagnoses and procedures will take place on October 1, 2015. The convergence of new diagnosis terms and codes presents unique challenges to managers in the behavioral health field.

Join Dru Anne Walz, Director, Product Management at Netsmart for this special online web briefing on the changes involved with the transition to ICD-10 and DSM-5 and how organizations can make sure they are positioned and prepared for the switch. This executive web briefing, “ICD-10 & DSM-5: The ‘How-To’ Guide To Successfully Managing The Transition,” scheduled for October 30 at 2:00pm EST will provide organizations with the insights and best practices needed to assess whether their organization is prepared for the transition, and if not what steps they need to take to prepare.



During this special 90-minute web briefing, hear Dru Anne Walz:

  • Provide insight into what behavioral health organizations need to assess within their workflow to make the changes to ICD-10 and DSM-5
  • Offer best practices for the steps necessary to prepare your system for this transition
  • Present case studies of behavioral health organizations who have undergone, survived, and even thrived the switch
