Gettysburg, Pa. (June 28, 2019) – OPEN MINDS has announced The OPEN MINDS Children’s Services Leadership Summit will be held at The 2019 OPEN MINDS Technology & Informatics Institute on October 28, 2019 from 8:00am – 4:00pm. During this Summit, attendees will review the new approaches to both strategy and management in health, mental health, autism, development disabilities, child welfare, juvenile justice, or special education.

This year, The 2019 OPEN MINDS Children’s Services Executive Summit is focused on the market factors that are reshaping service delivery in the autism space and the new opportunities for provider organizations serving the autism population. This one-day intensive summit will cover the key issues that are shaping the field, bringing together key executives from payer and provider organizations, market trend setters, and industry thought leaders.

The day will start with a big picture overview of key market trends, followed by a panel of health plan representatives who will discuss how their organizations are approaching financing and care management with the autism population. In the afternoon, we’ll hear exciting case studies from provider organizations that have developed innovative programs for children and youth with autism—they will discuss their models, their program outcomes, their plans for the future, and their advice for other provider organizations. The day will close with an exciting panel discussion on the new technologies that are shaping the course of autism treatment.
