September 14, 2016 — Free Executive Web Briefing Sponsored By ODH, Inc. & Mentrics™

Value-based and pay-for-performance reimbursement models are driving health care executives in health plans, accountable care organizations (ACOs)/behavioral health organizations (BHOs)/managed care organizations (MCOs), health homes, and provider systems to think strategically about behavioral health.

Research increasingly demonstrates the impact of mental health and addiction on the total cost of health care, consumer health status, and consumer outcomes.1 The potential return-on-investment (ROI) for early behavioral health treatment can be significant, especially when the cost of comorbidities are factored in through data integration and analytics. However, achieving significant ROI requires investment in new, advanced technology and analytics that impact end-to-end processes – from improved risk stratification and predictive modeling to more efficient assessment and care management practices.

Join ODH, Inc. and OPEN MINDS for this 90-minute webinar to discuss how emerging behavioral health technology solutions can increase the competitiveness of population health management for risk-bearing entities.


During this 90-minute webinar, attendees will:

  • Understand the role of technology in an evolving population health management landscape
  • Learn how to use technology to leverage behavioral health for better population health management
  • Discover emerging behavioral health technology solutions that can increase your competitiveness and produce a positive ROI
