GETTYSBURG, Pa., Nov. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OPEN MINDS, a leading health and human service market intelligence firm, recently announced a new educational offering for executives in the field —"Water, Water Everywhere But Not A Drop To Drink: Drawing Useful Conclusions From A Sea Of Data." This 90-minute web briefing, underwritten by Netsmart, will take place Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 2:00 PM EST. Featured speakers will include Robert Backmeyer, Chief Operating Officer, Centerstone of Indiana and Lorrie Sheets, IT Project Manager, San Mateo County Behavioral Health & Recovery Services.

"The behavioral health and human services community excels at collecting data, but the demands of accountable care and performance-based funding pose a new challenge for today's providers. Improving client outcomes while reducing costs requires organizations to organize and draw useful conclusions from their data, which is no easy feat," said Monica E.

"We're excited to have two organizations that have figured out the success formula share their stories during this special collaborative web briefing we're hosting with Netsmart."

The program agenda for this web-based event will focus on how provider organizations can better leverage their data to:

  • Maximize reimbursements, shorten the revenue cycle, and save on staffing costs
  • Provide positive return on investment and generate new funding opportunities
  • Enable leaders to better act upon key performance indicators to improve efficiency, identify specific weaknesses, and spur innovation
  • Reduce the dependency on IT departments while eliminating hours of manual, time-consuming report creation and data entry
