2020 Conference Call for Presentation Form

The i2i Center is taking the Pinehurst Conference virtual for 2020!  A virtual event has numerous benefits – no limit on attendance, attendee access to ALL sessions, virtual networking, interactive exhibits and more.  We believe a virtual event has the potential to greatly expand participation, particularly in the current environment, and will give presenters a robust platform.  The i2i Center’s December conference has a 20+ year history and traditionally offers presenters and their organizations exposure to 1,000 leaders and professionals representing private and public healthcare payers, MH/IDD/SUD and physical health providers, State agencies, advocates, consumer and family members and other stakeholders.

There are national trends in healthcare, including in MH/IDD/SUD services, that are becoming the standard of practice.  Federal expectations for value-based contracting that balances service quality and cost require higher business acuity and better technology.  In North Carolina, there continues to be movement towards Medicaid managed care, and its implementation will likely impact every aspect of public services over the next several years.  i2i is focused on supporting implementation and innovation in the evolving system that will improve whole person, integrated care in physical, behavioral health, and I-DD services while also addressing the new world we find ourselves as we grapple with the impact of a pandemic.

How the Virtual Conference Sessions will work: 

We are seeking 1.5 hour main topic session proposals and 1 hour Sparking Innovation submissions.  All proposals should aim to address policy issues and implications, services, consumer involvement, and/or administrative aspects of any of the topic areas below.  We are also seeking presentations that incorporate lessons learned during COVID-19 that can and should become a permanent part of systems, programs, or services moving forward:

Proposals are DUE BY AUGUST 7TH
