Which business models are most likely to succeed given these turbulent times? What does a successful Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) service provider look like, in terms of size, leadership skills, management, financing, and technology? How do you plan for the unknown, and go beyond surviving to thriving? Today’s I/DD provider organizations and executive teams need to consider these questions in order to tackle the numerous challenges in the market and position for sustainability.
One of the major challenges I/DD executives face is the changing way in which stakeholders across systems of care need to collaborate in this new arena. With the landscape morphing, stakeholders are forced to both think and work differently with Medicaid, managed care, payers, state workers, elected officials, and other partner organizations just to survive. In order to do this, executives need to understand the latest best practices in the evolving Medicaid managed care system and value-based payment market, as well as how to build a system that accurately measures performance in order to get paid. Organizations are also faced with the challenges of understanding the new financing options and meeting the increasingly demanding performance expectations of payers. Executives must prepare and understand how to evaluate if and when to consider a merger or acquisition, and what technology is needed to meet these new payer expectations in order to succeed in the ever changing value-based marketplace.
The 2018 OPEN MINDS I/DD Executive Summit is designed to provide practical, cutting-edge ideas for executives, with a clear vision on how to continue to move their organization forward successfully, despite all the turbulence. With two opportunities to attend throughout the year, this information-packed event will give your organization the strategies and tools you need to overcome the challenges of today’s changing marketplace.
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.
