July 20, 2017 – Free Executive Web Briefing Sponsored By Netsmart

Leading organizational change is vital to your organization at all stages of your business lifecycle, especially as the human services industry constantly evolves. Successful managers are usually good change managers. Whether it’s ensuring a steady succession plan for future leadership, managing process changes during mergers or acquisitions, or identifying and implementing new financial systems, these work processes are handled well by most managers. However, optimizing a newly implemented technology is often misperceived as just a technology problem when it is really a strategic change management initiative.

Join Denny Morrison, PhD, Chief Clinical Officer at Netsmart  on July 20th at 2:00 PM ET for “Organizational Leadership, Change Management & Technology Implementation – Is There a Link?” to hear best practices of health and human services leaders managing change within their organization. Dr. Morrison will explore the potential ripple effect of changing technology, organizational culture and leadership, and how managing these changes can help you not only create better outcomes for your consumers, but also positively impact how your internal organization operates.


During this 90-minute executive web briefing, you’ll learn how to:

  • Be aware and agile during the strategic and cultural changes technology acquisition creates
  • Be technologically literate no matter your executive position
  • Harness the potential of technology to create new models of personalized, quality care
  • Proactively have the right people and processes in place for when change does occur
  • Minimize disruptions and empower your team to embrace change

Featured Speakers

Denny Morrison, PhD, Chief Clinical Officer, Netsmart

Dr. Dennis Morrison leads our clinical team in transforming clinical care in behavioral healthcare settings. Morrison focuses on research-based practices and the need for better coordinated and integrated behavioral health and primary care.

Prior to joining Netsmart in 2012, Morrison served as chief executive officer of the Center for Behavioral Health (CBH) in Bloomington, Ind. Under Morrison’s leadership, CBH was the first behavioral health company to win the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations’ Ernest A. Codman Award, recognizing excellence in the use of outcomes measurement to achieve healthcare quality improvement. In addition, CBH won the HIMSS Nicholas E. Davies Award for Excellence in the implementation of electronic health records (EHRs) and the Negley Chairman’s Award for Excellence in Risk Management.

In May 2008, CBH merged with three other community mental health centers, creating a $120-million, multistate provider organization serving 70,000 consumers annually. To integrate and manage research and information technology services for the merged entities, a new corporation, Centerstone Research Institute (CRI), was formed; Morrison was named its CEO. He was responsible for integrating four EHRs across two states into a single, homogeneous, internally-managed EHR, utilized by 1,800 employees (1,400 clinicians) and serving 70,000 clients. Morrison was an officer in the U.S. Navy. He is the co-inventor of a patented behavioral healthcare outcomes software product.

Morrison holds a doctorate in counseling psychology, a master’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in exercise physiology from Ball State University. He sits on the board of Grafton Integrated Health Network, the advisory board of Indiana University’s Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and is vice chair of the board of the International Initiative of Mental Health Leadership.

Morrison says he makes every day matter by, “changing the way healthcare is delivered.”
