The National Council for Behavioral Health embraced Nashville’s culture with daily performances of original songs incorporating behavioral health themes, line dancing demonstrations, a singer/songwriter showcase and an onsite music listening lounge. These one-of-a-kind entertainment opportunities kept the energy high and attendees in good spirits!
This year was especially unique because the National Council celebrated their 50th anniversary. NatCon19 opened with a video featuring industry-wide milestones spanning the past 50 years. The theme of expanding our progress from the past continually resurfaced throughout the conference as we collectively celebrated the National Council’s landmark year.
In addition to the National Council’s anniversary, this year was Linda Rosenberg’s final NatCon after serving 15 years as the President and CEO. Her dedication to advocacy and numerous achievements were frequently noted and highly praised. The conference ultimately concluded with a heartfelt thank you to Linda for her leadership and service.
This year, the Netsmart NatCon booth was themed “Expect More from Your EHR.” Our onsite team worked to spread awareness of how exceptional health IT can deliver more than a paperless system. From analytics to care coordination, clinical and consumer engagement, integrated care, interoperability, mobility and telehealth, our associates strived to expand attendees’ EHR expectations.
Visitors to the Netsmart booth took advantage of meetings, demonstrations and learning about how we’re working to achieve whole-person care by connecting addiction treatment and behavioral health to the rest of healthcare. Netsmart experts engaged in collaborative discussions with providers about their organization’s future with specialized technology and services that support their unique operational and care delivery needs.
Around the corner from the main Netsmart booth in the solutions pavilion was the myLearningPointe booth. Attendees stopped by to learn how our unique solution could help organizations of all sizes and complexities turn training into profits, increase their savings, access more content from industry leaders and meet ongoing training needs.
Outside of the Netsmart booth, more than 50 Netsmart clients, partners and experts presented at NatCon19. In particular, Dr. Sandra Parker, chief medical director for AltaPointe Health, shared how leveraging integrated telehealth solutions from Netsmart has enabled them to improve clinical outcomes, drive efficiencies and reduce costs. With such great interest following her presentation, she continued to visit with attendees afterward in the Netsmart booth!
Client Spotlight: At the NatCon19 Awards of Excellence Celebration, David Evans, CEO of Integral Care, was awarded the Visionary Leadership Award. We’re extremely proud of his efforts leading the expansion of mental health awareness and access to care.
Netsmart senior manager Andy Fosnacht delivered a presentation in the Peer2Peer Solution Circle addressing successful partnerships across healthcare. This intimate session allowed participants to ask specific questions and gain valuable information they could apply to their own organization.
As we reflect upon our NatCon19 adventure, we pause to appreciate the phenomenal discussions, collaboration and learning that occurred. We feel fortunate to have conveyed the message that there is tremendous potential for healthcare technology to create an environment of care that is truly comprehensive and focused on the whole person. We’re looking forward to another NatCon in boots next year in Austin!
