- Case Study Examples: Real-world provider organization executives that have improved outcomes as a result of benchmarking and analytics
"In today's health and human service market, consumers have more choices and payers are looking for value – for provider organizations, this means performance matters in ways that it hasn't in the past," said Monica E. Oss, OPEN MINDS Chief Executive Officer. "This is why we are so excited to host a web briefing on the importance of performance and benchmarking with Netsmart. To gain competitive advantage and maintain market share, executives of provider organizations need to not only be able to report their own metrics, but also be able to compare their performance with other organizations. By providing actual national benchmarking data during the web briefing, our team can help executives to put their own organizational performance into context."
All registrants for the web briefing will receive (at no charge and regardless of attendance) a recording of the webinar, an electronic copy of the PowerPoint presentation slides, and recommended readings on benchmarking from OPEN MINDS.
