The i2i Virtual Pinehurst Conference in December 2020 was extremely well-received with over 500 participating. The feedback was so favorable that we are really excited to host the 2021 Spring Conference virtually as well.
The Spring conference has a 25-year history and offers presenters exceptional opportunities for exposure to over 500 leaders and professionals representing private and public healthcare and behavioral healthcare payers, MH/IDD/SUD and physical health providers, hospital system leaders, State agencies, advocates, consumer and family members and other stakeholders.
We are looking for experts in diverse areas that can offer conference goers insight, skills and information that will help them adapt and be successful with our state’s transition to whole person, integrated care through the implementation of Medicaid managed care while also negotiating the changes and challenges facing our service system – a pandemic during a time of social and economic instability. We are also seeking presentations that incorporate the changes precipitated by COVID-19 that can and should become a permanent part of systems, programs, or services moving forward:
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.
- Improvements in administrative operations or services that advance whole person care in a managed care environment (ex: care management, alternative payment structures, performance measures, addressing SDOH, outcomes, demonstration of value, etc.)
- Technological advancements that improve individual care and/or organizational management (ex: telehealth, digital interoperability, electronic health records, digital transformation, consumer self-management technology, cyber security, etc.)
- Innovations or initiatives to improve consumer outcomes, participation and/or access to care (ex: self-advocacy initiatives, cross-system linkages, community inclusion, employment, recovery, expanding the use of peer support services).
- Clinical and Other Topics: Innovation in the treatment of opioid addiction, suicide prevention, foster care, collaborations across healthcare systems/professionals, veterans care, unmet health-related needs, and whole person care.
- Specialty Topics: Addressing Racial and Social Injustice, Workforce Issues (including diversification) Interfacing with the Justice System and Services and Supports for Individuals with Complex Needs.
Deadline for Submissions is March 3, 2021
How Virtual Conference Sessions will work:
- All presenters should have access to a Professional Zoom Account
- Presenters should tentatively plan on making a live presentation
- Sessions will still be interactive – presenters will host their session, poll audiences during presentations, and answer questions.
