March 15, 2016 — Free Executive Web Briefing Sponsored By Care Management Technologies

As we move to integrated care and other practice-based population health delivery systems, the shift in payment from volume to value is inevitable. The challenge for provider organizations is to improve outcomes and reduce costs, shifting the business model away from productivity to results. To do so, executive teams must assure that their clinical and managerial staff have the data and analytic tools they need to make effective and efficient care and business decisions.

Hear how Macomb County Community Mental Health has capitalized on their data infrastructure and analytic tools to meet the demands of their Medicaid capitation contracts. During this executive web briefing on March 15th at 2:00pm EST, Rosa Thomas, Director of Quality Management at Macomb County CMH will highlight the important role data and analytics have played in Macomb County’s integration of care.

Following this case study presentation, hear the teams at OPEN MINDS and Care Management Technologies discuss the importance of data and analytics for population health management and successfully managing capitation contract requirements. Our faculty will also showcase strategies for assessing organizational readiness for population health management.


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

  • Learn how to meet the demands of capitation contracts with data and analytic tools
  • Identify ways to leverage data to successfully make the transition to value-based purchasing
  • Understand the value of data and analytics for population health management
