About the Conference

Millions of Americans in the United States today are affected by behavioral health issues, and most are not receiving proper, or if any, treatment. The numbers are continuing to escalate at an alarming rate, affecting the population’s health, as well as healthcare spending. The Opioid Crisis and substance abuse is also accelerating. The nation’s healthcare system is now engaged in formulating innovative strategies and programs to address this crisis, and the landscape is evolving at a rapid pace. Behavioral health integration and management has moved to the forefront, and many health plans and hospitals are now focusing their efforts on integrating behavioral health and medical care.

This conference brings together health plans, hospitals, health systems and industry leaders to share best practices in improving behavioral health networks, supporting behavioral health integration, and treating members’ whole health. Hear about substance abuse and other behavioral health issues and learn how hospitals, clinics and health plans, are overcoming existing hurdles and strategizing to create a more integrated system of behavioral healthcare. Key topics of discussion will include innovative behavioral health integration into primary care settings, leveraging community-based resources, utilizing technology to improve care access, making integration financially beneficial, substance abuse treatment, and operational best practices.
