GETTYSBURG, Pa., April 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Care coordination has become a key element of healthcare reform strategies aimed at providing comprehensive, integrated care and bending the cost curve for high-cost, high-need consumers. As more models for coordinated care emerge, the use of technology to support connectivity and increase services capacity – along with the adoption of enhanced quality measurement standards – have taken center stage.

To learn more about how organizations are using technology to support their care coordination processes, OPEN MINDS and Netsmart are hosting a special online event, "Care Coordination 101: Participate In Successful Person-Centered Care Models" on April 29 at 2:00 PM EDT. Hear from A.J. Peterson, general manager, Netsmart CareConnect™ and Larry Seltzer, general manager, Netsmart CareManager™ on how they are collaborating with organizations across the country to support and implement models of person-centered care. During this executive development session attendees will:

  • Learn the benefits of care coordination models currently in practice - from health homes and ACOs to co-located services and direct communication with acute care hospitals
  • Explore real-world examples of improved outcomes driven by successful care coordination
  • Identify next steps for facilitating integrated, whole-person care at their own organizations
