NYAPRS Releases Program Details of 2017 Executive Seminar: Register Today!

NYAPRS Note: NYAPRS is very pleased to release program details of our upcoming Annual Executive Seminar, “All Hands on Deck: Ensuring a Recovery Focus in a Changing Healthcare Environment,” to be held April 27-8 at the Albany Hilton.
Our program has been designed to feature leading national and state experts’ analysis of the anticipated impact of federal Medicaid policy changes and to explore timely themes that include changes and challenges faced by NYS health homes, strategies to increase the alignment between DSRIP and community based organizations, use of personal healthcare information to improve outcomes, behavioral health integration innovations, models of successful value propositions, value based payment readiness for smaller and mid-sized non-profits, strategic partnerships, peer run service best practices and outcome driven care.

We expect that there’ll be a lot of new information by April about new funding opportunities and strategies, changes to health home and DSRIP policies, the move to Value Based Payment and the impact of the newly enacted state budget.

See you in April at the Hilton!
