Save Nov 15-6 for 2012 PROS Implementation Academy (2)

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.

The last two years, NYAPRS has hosted a statewide 2 day technical assistance conference for PROS providers that received rave reviews from the attendees. Our opening plenary will offer the OMH perspective on marketing PROS as an integral component of Health Homes. 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. Don't miss out. Registration information will be sent shortly.
