After you check in for the Summit, start off the morning with breakfast and networking. Use this time to catch up with colleagues, discuss the day’s upcoming sessions with our team of expert speakers, and meet new people - you never know what doors may open when you take the time to network with your peers.
The past four decades have seen significant changes and progress in the services and supports available to people with I/DD and their families. This plenary address will focus on the most contemporary trends in national spending on these services, including an analysis of emerging data on availability, cost, reimbursement models and other critical factors for effective service delivery. The current California service system, among other states, will be assessed with recommendations for future improvements and a discussion of opportunities for innovation and best practices in the managed healthcare era. All registered attendees of the 2017 I/DD Executive Summit will receive a copy of Dr. Braddock's “State of the States: 2017.”
Take a break to enjoy some coffee and a snack while you network with speakers, faculty, and colleagues.
All providers of services to the I/DD population are facing unprecedented changes in the market; how providers respond will determine whether they will still be in business in five years. Leading providers in the country are experimenting with newly shaped programs and innovative service offerings, creative marketing ideas, partnerships, cost containment measures, and advanced technology and integration initiatives. In this panel discussion, we will hear about from pioneers in the field, exploring what has and has not worked, and why.
One of the most complex changes underway in the I/DD provider market is the steady movement towards value-based payments. As fee-for-service payments gradually disappear, payers are replacing them with a variety of payment options, from performance-based contracting, to bundled services, episodes of care, and capitation. Each of these payment structures requires access to real time performance data, integration with primary care and payer systems, and sophisticated technology solutions. What do providers need to look for in information systems today? What resources are necessary to implement new technology and keep these technologies relevant and sustainable? Our technology savvy panelists will examine these considerations and share their perspectives on the current and future technology landscape.
Take a break and discuss the day's sessions with colleagues and peers while enjoying a beer or glass of wine and hors d'oeuvres.
Successful I/DD provider executives are seriously evaluating the long-term viability of their organizations, given the new demands of payers, the need for hefty technology investments, and the competition organizations finds themselves in. As we wind down the day, we will take a hard look at the risks of not changing, and the potential opportunities and risks of responding to these market changes through divestment of property, merging with other organizations, or investing for growth. In this closing keynote, OPEN MINDS CEO Monica Oss will discuss the factors providers should consider when contemplating growth opportunities in this time of uncertainty.
