NEW ORLEANS, LA., Dec. 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OPEN MINDS announced that the fourth annual OPEN MINDS Planning & Innovation Institute will take place on June 3-5, 2014 at the Sheraton in New Orleans. The focus of this year's institute is on market positioning – and how specialist organizations in health and human services can succeed through repositioning in an evolving market.

This year's institute will provide a hands-on look at the best practices in contracting, service delivery models, and tech innovations that are key to success in new delivery system arrangements such as ACOs, medical homes, and specialty care management programs.  The institute is expected to draw 400+ behavioral health and human service executives and over two dozen of the nation's top heath care technology vendors.
Led by a faculty of OPEN MINDS senior associates, industry experts, and innovative providers, the institute agenda includes a variety of sessions designed to help organizations discover their path to innovation. Some of the planned sessions include:

  • The Inside Perspective On Health Homes: Learning From The Experience Of Provider Organizations
  • ACOs & Specialty Care – Where Do Specialists Fit?
  • The OPEN MINDS Guide To Strategic Planning: How To Find The Right Path For Your Organization In A Turbulent Market

"The new world of positioning in health and human services is not about what you have done in the past, but what you are doing today – and tomorrow," said OPEN MINDS Chief Executive Officer, Monica E. Oss. "For organizations serving complex consumers, this is a particularly challenging time, and our event is designed to give executives the tools they need to understand the market around them and navigate a successful path for their organization. The best practice pillars of this institute are three-fold – how to develop successful strategies; how to innovate effectively and profitably; and, how to compete in today's market."
