GETTYSBURG, Pa., Oct. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ –The OPEN MINDS Integrated Care Online community, powered by NextGen Healthcare, is sponsoring an executive forum focused on integrated care on October 28, 2020 from 1:00 – 4:00 pm ET as part of the OPEN MINDS 2020 Executive Leadership Retreat.

The clinical benefits of integrated care are becoming more and more understood. When the mind and body are treated as one—at the point of care—patient outcomes improve, overall costs are reduced, and health care achieves a higher standard.  In this one-of-a-kind forum, facilitated by OPEN MINDS CEO Monica E. Oss, a panel of integrated care providers will address the questions other organizations are asking as they consider care models that integrate physical and behavioral health. How do we address the medical, behavioral, and social needs of our patients in a single setting? What are the challenges? What are the financial implications? How do patients and providers respond?

Panelists include:

  • Peggy Chase – CEO, Terros Health (Arizona)
  • Shannon Hannon, MBA, CMPE – VP of Healthcare Integration, Bowen Center (Indiana)
  • Rob Ryan, Ph.D., NCSP – SVP of Operations, Bowen Center (Indiana)
  • Dr. Rebecca Eleck – Medical Director, Wheeler Clinic (Connecticut)
  • Monica E. Oss – CEO, OPEN MINDS

Join these health care leaders for a compelling discussion on how each broke the norm and successfully brought behavioral health and physical health together. Case studies will be presented and made available to attendees.

Participants will learn why integrated care is a goal worth pursuing, how best to prepare for a transition to integrated care, practical models and pathways toward integration, and best practices for effective, integrated care management. Participants will also receive exclusive access to an Integrated Care Resource Toolkit and an invitation to participate in a benchmark study on Integrated Care readiness.

The Executive Leadership Retreat, normally held in historic Gettysburg, Pa., is a multi-day event offering best practices for strategic organizational transformation along with opportunities for personal development. This year the event will be virtual, with over 20 executive sessions, including didactic educational sessions; panel discussions with industry thought leaders; case model learning sessions featuring innovative organizations and programs, and guided virtual tours through American Civil War history.
