December 14, 2017 – Free Executive Web Briefing Sponsored By Netsmart

As the healthcare system continues to shift from fee-for-service to value-based care, connecting providers across all care communities is crucial for driving efficiencies and improving outcomes. While partnering with organizations in the same community is a natural starting point, complete whole-person care means collaboration that extends throughout both the human services and post-acute spectrum.

Do you have the tools to turn your data into the actionable insights needed to tell a more comprehensive story about a person? Do the processes in place at your organization enable you to effectively work with other providers and facilitate seamless transitions of care? How can you overcome common collaboration challenges in order to improve outcomes?

Join moderator Denny Morrison, Ph.D., chief clinical advisor at Netsmart, along with experts from across the healthcare community on December 14th at 2:00 p.m. ET for “Panel Discussion: The Path To Whole-Person Care.”  The panelists will discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with coordinating care across multiple settings and providers, as well as the healthcare IT tools critical for delivering whole-person care.


During this 90 minute web briefing, attendees will gain a deeper understanding of:

  • Whole-person care – what it is and how it affects consumers and outcomes
  • Coordinated care – the challenges and opportunities
  • Integrating care – best practices for working with organizations across the continuum

Featured Speakers

Denny Morrison, Ph.D., Chief Clinical Advisor, Netsmart


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