Discover why a value-based approach is essential for improving consumer outcomes and ensuring organizational sustainability, especially in child and family services organizations. You'll learn the processes and tools your agency can implement to work more efficiently in the office and in the field, and collaborate more effectively with other organizations across the human services spectrum.

Value-based payment models continue to emerge as a focal point across the health care system, especially as they relate to integrated and whole-person care. Many community-based human services organizations, which are historically underfunded and overstrained, view the prospect of implementing transformational models of care and reimbursement as disconcerting and lots of work for little value. But the alternative is not participating in value-based models, which would render services unsustainable and obsolete.

Join Netsmart associate Gary Beckham, solutions strategist, to learn why a value-based approach is essential for improving consumer outcomes and ensuring organizational sustainability, especially in child and family services organizations.

Who Should Attend
