The Future Of Integrated Care Delivery For Complex Consumers: An Executive Guide To Integration With Primary Care

Tuesday, August 15, 2017 | 1:00pm – 4:00pm

In an era when everyone in health care is talking about integration, many executive teams of provider organizations are scrambling to make integrated care models work – both from a consumer experience perspective and from a financial sustainability perspective. With challenges ranging from financing and reimbursement, to information exchange and the adequacy of EHRs, to bridging the culture divide between primary and behavioral health care, few organizations have been able to master the process. In this intensive half-day workshop, we will review trends in integrated service delivery, integrated care delivery models, and the challenges and benefits of integrating with primary care.

In this workshop, we will discuss the market push towards integrated care management and integrated service delivery, and review how provider organizations can develop successful partnerships with payers in an integration-focused market.
