Defran Systems, a leading provider of integrated electronic health systems for human services organizations, is sponsoring a free webinar entitled “The New Behavioral Health Horizon: A Provider's Guide to Technology, HIE and Primary/Behavioral Health Integration.” Defran is sponsoring the webinar along with The National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare, the largest association of behavioral health organizations in the country.
Wednesday, April 11, 2012, 1:00 p.m.
Integration of behavioral and physical health is a requirement to providing coordinated and quality care. As a participant in health care reform initiatives such as Health Care Homes, Accountable Care Organizations, and Care Coordination Organizations, these organizations will need to embrace EHRs as required and operations-enhancing tools.
This webinar will include an overview of the current nationwide HIE landscape, as well as federal initiatives aimed at resolving the unique challenges of behavioral health and human service providers.
Additionally, this webinar will discuss why an EHR is an essential part of a successful integration plan, and how ONC-ATCB Certified EHR applications support cultural, financial, and technological transitions to integrated healthcare and meaningful data exchange.
The free integration webinar will be hosted by Michael R. Lardiere, LCSW, vice president of health information technology and strategic development at The National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare, and Fran Loshin-Turso, President, CEO and Co-Founder of Defran Systems, Inc.
