Register Today for Nov 15-16 2012 PROS Implementation Academy

NYAPRS note: New York’s Personalized Recovery Oriented Services (PROS) licensed Medicaid program is promoting recovery, employment and community integration in integrated ways that position PROS providers well for the health home and managed care environments to come. Over the last two years, NYAPRS has hosted an annual statewide 2 day technical assistance conference for PROS providers that has received rave reviews from the attendees. This year’s program will feature an opening plenary that will offer the OMH perspective on marketing PROS as an integral component of Health Homes and managed care. Friday’s plenary will include leading PROS providers who will “envision” the PROS of the future within the Health Home and Managed Care environment. Leading BHO and MCO representatives will share their views on the special place of PROS within their systems and how to assure that your PROS has that place.
