June 2, 2016 — Free Executive Web Briefing Sponsored By Askesis Development Group

From health plans to provider systems, success in the current health care environment is dependent on an organization’s ability to demonstrate value for payers and consumers alike. This new emphasis on value means a system-wide focus on improving quality of care and lowering costs by improving health. The change in perspective is simple in concept – but complex in execution.

This perspective has brought new attention to the impact of mental health and addictive disorders on the overall health and health care resource utilization of populations. New studies confirm that individuals with serious mental illnesses and addictive disorders often have concomitant chronic medical conditions that, together, cause high resource utilization. In addition, a number of analyses demonstrate that even mild and moderate mental disorders, such as depression and anxiety disorders, can exacerbate the health status of individuals with a wide range of medical conditions.

While May is national Mental Health Awareness Month, providers know the commitment to delivering quality care is a year-long priority. Join Monica E. Oss, Chief Executive Officer of OPEN MINDS, on June 2nd at 2:00 pm EDT to conclude Mental Health Month and kick-off the rest of the year with critical insights on the future of serving the mental health population amidst system reform and the shift to a new era in value-based purchasing.


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

  • Explore the current state of the shift to pay-for-value in the health and human service system
  • Learn how this shift is remaking the value chain in the field, particularly for mental health, and discover the implications of this shift for stakeholders
  • Understand how quality care is being redefined and how to prepare for success in the new value-based environment
