OPEN MINDS Announces New Summit On Innovative Treatment Programs, Call For Presentations Opens On January 15

Gettysburg, PA, Jan. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OPEN MINDS announced a new executive summit – “Designing & Implementing Innovative Treatment Programs.” The summit will be held on August 14, 2018 prior to The 2018 OPEN MINDS Management Best Practices at the Hilton in Long Beach, California.

The summit will kick off with an overview of the trends driving new innovation in the health and human service market and a review of OPEN MINDS’ strategic framework for designing and launching sustainable treatment programs. Additionally, the day will feature case study presentations on cutting-edge new treatment programs – including their design and keys to successful implementation and sustainability. The summit will conclude with a round table discussion on the strategic challenges to innovation for specialty provider organizations, which will feature all of the day’s case study presenters. Annie Medina, Senior Associate with OPEN MINDS will chair the summit.

“Financing and technology are not the only sea changes for organizations serving complex consumers. New science—in genetics, in imaging, in pharmaceuticals, in robots, and more—are reshaping what is best practice,” said Monica E. Oss, OPEN MINDS chief executive officer. “We are launching this summit as the annual forum for thought leaders to learn about new, cutting edge treatment programs, about best practices in launching new clinical programming, and about designing these programs for long-term sustainability. In our initial year, we will be featuring eight new treatment approaches – focused on the consumers with chronic conditions and complex support needs.”

OPEN MINDS is currently seeking speakers for this executive summit, who have already succeeded, or are in the process of designing and implementing innovative  treatment programs at their behavioral health organizations. Applications will be accepted through March 15. After a review process, selected case studies will be announced in April 2018. Applicants will be asked to describe their program model in detail, including staffing, financing, current program outcomes, and plans for the future. Applications will be accepted from provider organizations, payers, and vendors; however, payers and vendors will be required to feature one of their provider organization partners as focal point of the case study presentation.
