Understanding Integration, Identifying Top Models, & Knowing The Future Of Its Role In Health & Human Services

Integration is changing the competitive advantage for health and human service provider organizations—and with it, changing the parameters of financial sustainability. Integration brings with it value-based reimbursement, consolidation, and leverage of technology. Providers are finding new ways to provide old services in new ways and the COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly hurried some of these new technologies along to reach individuals whose mental health has been affected by the pandemic and its economic fallout.,/p>

In this webinar, we will discuss trends of medical behavioral integration strategies on the health plan side of things. We will then discuss OPEN MINDS’ identification of ten integration models that are emerging in the U.S. health and human services field.

Participants will:

  • Understand what integration means to different stakeholders in the behavioral health system.
  • Review the 10 main models of integration OPEN MINDS has identified in health and human services.
  • Gain insight on the future of health plan and provider integration.
