BHM ExpertsBHM experts will be exhibiting at the upcoming NC Council of Community Providers Conference December 5-7, 2011.  This exciting conference will be bringing together NC members and will be providing programs with a strong, cohesive, statewide voice through policy analysis, technical assistance, and educational programs.  Among these programs BHM will be hosting a dynamic learning series entitled: “Critical Access Behavioral Health Agencies: How to Survive and Prosper in a Time of Transition.”

BHM Healthcare Solutions (BHM) is pleased to be hosting a dynamic learning session at this year’s NC Council of Community Providers 2011 Conference.  The conference will be held on Dec. 5th through the 7th, 2010 at the Pinehurst Resort.

The Conference is given each year as part of the NC Councils programs of ongoing educational and technical assistance program.  The central mission of the conference is to provide training resources that respond to the diverse needs of both public and private mental health providers, and allowing them the opportunity to share and learn about the latest programmatic and management innovations.

As part of the conference expert consultants from BHM will be hosting a dynamic learning session based on the Harvard Business School Case Study Method.  This session entitled “Critical Access Behavioral Health Agencies: How to Survive and Prosper in a Time of Transition” is a participant centered learning series.  Rather than the traditional lecture series, this opportunity will allow attendees to place themselves in the role of key decision makers as they review real cases, identify problems, and arrive at a set of recommendations while being guided by an expert panel which is familiar with CABHAs and the operational challenges that they face.

The Case Study Method is a “profound educational innovation that presents the greatest challenges confronting leading companies.”  Cases which present a wide array of issues are presented, and through the process of dynamic exchange attendees will become “adept at analyzing issues, exercising judgment, and making difficult decision.  The session will further add value for attendees by allowing participants to submit their own case studies which highlight areas of concern that they are facing within their own organization, and open this up to the panel for discussion.  Topics which will be explored include the complexity of CABHA rules and regulations, operating a CABHA in the new Managed Care Medicaid Waiver environment, how to maximize revenue, how to mitigate fraud, abuse, and compliance risk, and how to incentivize productivity.

Leading the roundtable of experts is BHM Healthcare Solutions President Mark Rosenberg.  Other experts will include Jennifer Huber-Ternay, CFO, BHM; Brian Johnson; SVP of Finance and Claims, BHM, and Ann Wilson, Senior Consultant, BHM.
