Monica E. Oss & Ken Carr Leading Exclusive Strategy Webinar For Elite OPEN MINDS Circle Members on March 28

Gettysburg, PA, March 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — On Wednesday, March 28th at 1:00pm ET, OPEN MINDS Chief Executive Officer Monica E. Oss and Senior Associate Ken Carr will lead the first OPEN MINDS Circle Elite members-only strategy web briefing of 2018, “The Transition To Value: Balancing The Strategic Challenges Of Performance Measurement, Talent & Capital.” This exclusive online event will address the strategic, organizational challenges of transitioning your organization to value-based purchasing and value-based reimbursement. Areas of focus for the discussion include planning for organizational sustainability, the changing financing and delivery models for primary care, new service line development, and capital requirements.

“Managed care, value-based reimbursement, and service delivery are causing a “reordering” of the traditional value chain in the health and human service market. This is a particularly disruptive reordering in the segments of the field serving consumers with complex needs,” said Monica E. Oss, Chief Executive Officer of OPEN MINDS. “The challenge for the executive teams of specialty organizations, is that the preferred service models are changing- and the revenue potential and margins of traditional services are on the decline. At the same time, payers expect all stakeholders in the service delivery system to have reimbursement that is based, in whole or in part, on their performance.”

“Moving to a business model that is focused on value involves using data to drive outcomes,” said Ken Carr, Senior Associate, OPEN MINDS. “It requires using technology to gather data and create consumer engagement, new staff skill sets, including data literacy, innovation and performance, and the capital to fuel those changes. Organizations need to strategically change how they deliver services and define their “value” to consumers and payers.”

The web briefing is limited to Elite-level members of The OPEN MINDS Circlemarket intelligence service. There will be both a briefing on key strategy issues and solutions, and the opportunity for real time discussion of these topics. All Elite members that register for the web briefing will receive a copy of the briefing deck.
