GETTYSBURG, Pa. (May 26, 2020)—More than 400 executives of health and human service organizations across the country will come together virtually, June 1–5, for The 2020 OPEN MINDS Strategy & Innovation Institute to exchange ideas on how to leverage trends and opportunities, scale innovation, and gather tools and skills to build a long-term plan for sustainability in a post-COVID-19 health care market.

“We look forward to the online gathering of the leaders in specialty health care for people with chronic conditions and complex support needs. We’ve all learned to pivot to virtual operations and virtual service delivery in the last three months of social distancing. Now it’s time to pivot to virtual conferences,” says Monica E. Oss, chief executive officer at OPEN MINDS. “Our team of experts has put together a dynamic week-long digital experience so executives can learn and network from wherever they are. We are grateful to our partners, speakers, and attendees for making this possible,” she added.

The virtual event format will allow attendees to:

  • Attend 35+ online sessions live during the week of June 1, with a schedule convenient to all time zones.
  • Participate in live discussions with thought leaders and other attendees after each live session.
  • Invite colleagues and board members to watch from the convenience of their home or office, and organize team debriefs after each day’s events.

  • Schedule individual appointments with industry partners, faculty, and OPEN MINDS senior team members throughout the week.

OPEN MINDS will launch an event website immediately prior to the start of the week-long event, which will serve as the entry point to all live sessions and the virtual exhibit hall.
