7/12/17 1:00 PM (CDT) Next Level Value-based Care: Assuming Risk and Improving ROI

Risk is inherent in the move to value-based care. Organizations that manage consumers with comorbidities across the traditional dividing lines between physical health and human services must capture data and quality metrics. But is that enough to know the risk you’re assuming?  

According to the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) and the Workforce Training Program, capturing data is just the beginning. If your organization’s goal is to participate in value-based payment models, a comprehensive view of the whole person, including actionable insights, is the new baseline requirement.

For an in-depth look at what’s required, please join two Netsmart associates to understand how to embark on the progression from data to information to knowledge to wisdom (DIKW). Carol Reynolds, executive vice president for client experience and Steve Harm, data services and solutions manager, will cover the methods organizations are using to mitigate risk and improve ROI, such as:

  • Stratifying population views to assess consumer needs
  • Providing appropriate services through the use of evidence-based practices
  • Managing outcomes and maximizing incentive payments through the tracking of quality measures
7/20/17 1:00 PM (CDT) Organizational Leadership, Change Management and Technology Implementation – Is There a Link?

Leading organizational change is vital to your organization at all stages of your business lifecycle, especially as the human services industry constantly evolves. Successful managers are usually good change managers. Whether it’s ensuring a steady succession plan for future leadership, managing process changes during mergers or acquisitions, or identifying and implementing new financial systems, these work processes are handled well by most managers. However, optimizing a newly implemented technology is often misperceived as just a technology problem when it is really a strategic change management initiative.


Join Denny Morrison, PhD, Chief Clinical Officer at Netsmart on July 20th at 2 p.m. EDT for Organizational Leadership, Change Management and Technology Implementation – Is There a Link? to hear best practices of health and human services leaders managing change within their organization. You’ll understand the potential ripple effect of changing technology, organizational culture and leadership, and how managing these changes can help you not only create better outcomes for your consumers, but also positively impact how your internal organization operates.


 During this 90-minute executive web briefing, you’ll learn how to:

  • Be aware and agile during the strategic and cultural changes technology acquisition creates
  • Be technologically literate no matter your executive position
  • Harness the potential of technology to create new models of personalized, quality care
  • Proactively have the right people and processes in place for when change does occur
  • Minimize disruptions and empower your team to embrace change
8/17/17 1:00 PM (CDT) Next Level Value-based Care: Clinical Data and Quality Measures

The shift from fee-for-services to value-based care is here to stay. Organizations that want to emerge as leaders and sustain their positions in this new human services landscape are finding that the changes they need to make will go much deeper than payment structures.

It starts with defining “value” and ensuring you’re collecting the right data and systematically using it to inform clinical decision-making and impact population health.

Join Netsmart associates AJ Peterson, general manager and vice president for CareConnect and myHealthPointe and Larry Seltzer, general manager and senior director for CareManager for an in-depth look at the steps organizations are taking to prepare for value-based models, including:

  • Collecting and reporting on the quality measures that define “value” for your organization and community
  • Determining the processes to implement the best use of this data to inform clinical decisions and improve ROI
  • Coordinating with organizations across the human services continuum to securely exchange information
