Gettysburg, Pa. (August 29, 2016) — OPEN MINDS has announced that The 2017 OPEN MINDS Performance Management Institute will feature successful payer and provider partnerships that are leading the way in the new era of value-based care. This executive event is the only national gathering focused on performance measurement and performance management in the areas of the health and human service field that serve consumers with complex needs. The institute will take place on February 16-17, 2017 at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort, an attendee-favorite location in Clearwater Beach, Florida. Registration for this institute is now open.

“Our theme for 2017 is successful value-based payer/provider partnerships,” said Monica E. Oss, chief executive officer of OPEN MINDS. “For health plans and provider organizations that serve consumers with the most complex support needs, the transition to value-based reimbursement has been difficult. The measurement of value, the reimbursement models, and the partnership parameters that work are highly specialized. Our goal is to focus on ‘what works’ – the successful partnerships that are emerging best practices in this area.”

The institute agenda is built around a series of real-life case studies from organizations that are succeeding in the transition to value-based care. Through these examples, executives will not only learn how to make the successful transition to pay-for-value, but also gain insight into the process and learn how other trail-blazing organizations made the leap into the future. The case studies will focus on partnership innovations in mental health, addiction treatment, intellectual/developmental disabilities, long-term care, and children’s services. Additional details about the featured payer/provider collaborations will be released in the coming months.

Group discounts for The 2017 OPEN MINDS Performance Management Institute are available now. Early registration is recommended, as seating is limited, and the event has sold out in the past. Register today at
