CONNECTIONS2020 Conference Update on COVID-19:

CONNECTIONS has always been a time of collaboration and working together - ensuring our focus is about serving cause and community. After careful consideration and discussion with many of you, local health authorities and our partners, it is clear our focus right now must be on providing care and services. We have made the decision to postpone our CONNECTIONS2020 conference. It is an unprecedented time in healthcare and our continued partnership will be essential as we move forward in these times.

We are here to support you as you serve those in need during this defining moment. While you do this without an expectation of recognition, we are grateful for the essential role you serve for cause and community.

Please contact events@ntst.com with further questions regarding CONNECTIONS2020 and/or your Client Alignment Executive if there are additional ways in which Netsmart can support you during this time.


CONNECTIONS is the Netsmart annual user group meeting that brings together our clients, subject matter experts and vendor partners together for an event full of learning, networking and more! Read below for more details on this can’t-miss event! CONNECTIONS is three and a half days from Sunday evening to Wednesday afternoon, however we also offer pre and post-conference trainings on Sunday and Thursday. CONNECTIONS features a Solutionarium experience, which is an interactive showcase that gives attendees an opportunity to play with our solutions, talk with Netsmart subject matter experts and get an advanced look at what new solutions and features we’re rolling out.
