The only executive event focused on performance measurement and management in the areas of the health and human services field serving consumers with complex needs


The health and human services field is in a time of transition when it comes to financing and reimbursement models – particularly in the sectors of the field that serve consumers with complex needs.

And this transition is uneven – depending on the services an organization provides, its consumer base, and its geographic location. But the goal of this shift is the same across all payers – from Medicaid, to Medicare, to commercial payers, value-based care is the name of the game.

Weathering this transition from fee-for-service to value-based reimbursement is easier said than done for the executives of many provider organizations. What separates a successful shift to value from an unsuccessful one, is an organization embracing a new way of doing business – from top to bottom. This fundamental change in reimbursement is more than just a change in strategy, it requires a change in how organizations operate – their financial management systems, their performance metrics, and their talent management strategy.

Learn from the voices of experience in developing value-based reimbursement arrangements and making them work at The 2018 OPEN MINDS Performance Management Institute. This event is a “deep dive” into negotiating sustainable contracts with payers and health plans, building your organizational infrastructure for new business models, and realigning your management, financial, and clinical operations to optimize performance and success.

This year, attendees will:

  • Gain an understanding of how to structure value-based contracts so they are mutually beneficial for you and your payers
  • Discuss new techniques and strategies for improving performance
  • Learn how to successfully manage multiple health plan value-based contracts
  • Become skilled at identifying key considerations for partnering with ACOs

Whether you’ve already seen a shift away from fee-for-service, or are still anticipating the transition, join us this February in Clearwater, Florida to learn from  industry thought leaders, innovators, and market experts who are making value-based care a success.
