May 17, 2016 — Free Executive Web Briefing Sponsored By Care Management Technologies

Data analytics. Population health management. Value-based purchasing. These buzz words appear day in and day out in the health and human services industry, but do you know what they mean and how they affect your organization? Even if you know the lingo, implementing the practices and programs to keep up with the ever changing landscape can be difficult, and finding the right tools to use can be challenging. It takes a number of technologies and data analytics programs working together to successfully operate and implement the new initiatives needed to remain sustainable and successful in the changing marketplace.

Join us on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 at 2:00pm EDT for an exclusive executive web briefing to hear OPEN MINDS Senior Associate, Brandon Danz, share insights on recent trends, relevant technologies, and data analytics tools for managing population health in the health and human services field. And don’t miss an exclusive case study presentation from Nicole Lawson, Clinical Administrator of Oakland County Michigan Mental Health Authority, and Carol Duncan Clayton, Chief Executive Officer of Care Management Technologies on the strategies Oakland County Michigan Mental Health Authority has utilized for successful data driven population health management.


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

  • Gain a working definition of population health and the variety of technology tools (and data analytics programs) that support population health activities
  • Understand how population health management drives shifts in your organizational activities
  • Determine why data inside and outside the organization are valuable when providing population health management
  • Learn how to tie cost data to outcomes and clinical data for population health and value-based purchasing shifts
