March 29, 2016 — Free Executive Web Briefing Sponsored By Netsmart

Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs). Evidence-based practices. Value-based payment models. Quality measures and reporting. Over the past few months, the CCBHC concept has begun to take shape – and it’s time for provider organizations interested in becoming a CCBHC to take action. Organizations must review and be prepared to meet the criteria set by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA), which fall into six key topic areas: staffing mix; service access and availability; coordination of services; scope of services; quality improvement and reporting; and organizational, authority, governance, and accreditation.

Join Monica E. Oss, Chief Executive Officer at OPEN MINDS and Kevin Scalia, Executive Vice President of Corporate Development at Netsmart for, “Finding The Opportunities In Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs),” on March 29th at 2:00pm ET to get a deep dive into each of the basic tenets of the CCBHC program and the impact of using value-based payment models. Along with this deep dive, learn how to identify the opportunities for your organization in the CCBHC program and strategies to prepare for certification.


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

  • Understand the CCBHC program — and where it fits in an era of value-based payment models
  • Gain knowledge of the criteria and requirements for becoming a CCBHC — and how best to prepare
  • Learn how to leverage the opportunities within the CCBHC program to help position your organization for future success
