October 15, 2015 — Free Executive Web Briefing Sponsored By Core Solutions, Inc.

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

Currently, behavioral health organizations are challenged to remain efficient, effective, and competitive when it comes to maintaining their EHR systems. While these systems are the backbone to most service line operations, they are not providing the key transformational functionality needed in the new service delivery landscape, such as clinical management support across the continuum of care, enterprise management capability, interoperability, enhanced configurability, and end user ease-of-use. New EHRs are entering the marketplace as either transformed legacy systems or as entirely new players and it’s up to the management teams of behavioral health organizations to determine what their next EHR system move should be to drive their competitive advantage.

Join Dave Wanser, Ph.D., co-director of the JBS International Center for Sustainable Health and Care and Ravi Ganesan, President of Core Solutions on October 15 at 2:00pm EST for this exciting executive web briefing that will examine the shifts in the field and the effects on competitive advantage. Our speakers will also highlight the transformational functional elements that are available in second generation EHRs.


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

  • Understand the shifts in the financial and service delivery landscape
  • Recognize how these shifts are affecting competitive advantage
  • Review the functionalities that are available in second generation EHRs
