"The mandate of health reform challenges behavioral health and primary care providers to 'reconnect the mind and body.' But of all the questions posed by this challenge, perhaps the most vexing is 'How do we fuse the vastly different cultures, workflows, needs and IT solutions of physical and behavioral health?'" said OPEN MINDS Chief Executive Officer, Monica E. Oss. "This will be the focus of our upcoming executive education event led by Netsmart; and we're excited to hear how Netsmart's innovative module for integrating primary and behavioral data, workflows and records is working for Tarzana Treatment Centers."
This special online event, exclusively sponsored and underwritten by Netsmart, will be free to all behavioral health and human service industry executives through the OPEN MINDS website. During the 90-minute session, industry experts from Tarzana and Netsmart will lead an in-depth discussion on:
- Understanding the opportunity and various levels of integrating primary care with behavioral health
- Hearing a new perspective on primary care relative to behavioral health care from a family physician
- Seeing how providers are achieving the vision of the Health Home through integrating primary care with behavioral health care on a shared HIT platform
- Exploring tools that provide seamless integration of physical and behavioral health in a single EHR solution
