The 2020 I/DD Executive Summit: Strategies For The Future

Provider organizations serving individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) are facing new challenges that are forcing then to make difficult decisions. There are daily struggles balancing the personal experience and quality of service with operational efficiencies that ensure financial sustainability. Yet in this environment, innovation is taking root. Providers are finding ways to be efficient and more effective, and staff is more engaged, which is improving the experience for individuals and their families. The 2020 I/DD Executive Summit will provide the information, tools and resources your organization needs to build more efficient service models and business processes, as well as to deliver more effective care.

With a focus on strategies for the future, this is an essential event for any executive currently serving the I/DD population. Highlights of the agenda include discussions on the future of I/DD- including new ways of engaging and retaining staff to ensure continuity of service for this vulnerable population, how innovative technologies are being harnessed to improve care and business processes and mergers, acquisitions, & affiliations readiness.

  • This summit was informative for anyone trying to navigate the changing policies that affect people with I/DD.
  • Thank you for organizing a fabulous opportunity for learning and networking with colleagues and leaders, all focused on creating a better future for our communities.
  • Relevant and timely information focused on taking action(s) NOW to prepare for the ongoing changes to the I/DD sector. Learning from the experiences of others while gaining insight into the reform of Medicaid and ‘the system’ was extremely valuable for our organization.
  • It was refreshing to hear from people that were determined to cause action and solve problems instead of those who only vented their hardships without proposing any solutions.
  • It was rare to attend an event where leadership was so engaged and encouraged to speak with their peers.
