About the Pre-Conference

Healthcare has long been striving for integration and holistic care. At the same time, policy, regulation and payment structures continue to pull aspects of care into discrete silos. In a time when your zip code determines your health status, it is imperative for leaders to understand how to build systems that work collaboratively to address complex health needs. At HMA’s pre-conference, we will focus on the role of behavioral health as an intersection between general health and human services and as the “glue” to serve complex needs. Behavioral health is a focal point for all levels of the system and a priority for legislators at the federal and state level. Access to care and the quality of behavioral health services is paramount to meeting need and reducing the total cost of care.

At HMA’s pre-conference, we will explore the following topics through interactive content and discussion.

Find out why behavioral health drives the cost of care, and how can it reduce costs for complex needs

Learn how the target population of behavioral health services is being redefined and how behavioral health connects systems of care for complex populations

Understand how states are re-thinking behavioral health system design

Find out how behavioral health networks are changing and what constitutes an effective provider network

Obtain a roadmap for redefining behavioral health quality to ultimately get to alternative payment models
