In 2014, the Affordable Care Act, changing insurance regulations, and shifting consumer behavior will continue to impact behavioral healthcare and eating disorder/ addiction treatment providers of all sizes, from one-person private practices to large residential centers.

Change can be good and providers can benefit – especially if they understand the business trends that impact their clinical practices. Join Behavioral Healthcare for lunch and a panel discussion with experts from the southern California community and around the country who will discuss trends in marketing, technology, and reimbursement that providers can leverage to provide a solid financial foundation that allows them to continue to offer—and even expand—clinical services to people with mental health, eating disorders, and/or substance use issues.

After attending this discussion, participants will be able to:

  • Identify key business trends that will impact mental healthcare and eating disorder /addiction treatment organizations and professionals in 2014;
  • Discuss the importance and positive impacts of well-managed website and a cohesive online marketing strategy;
  • Create and support informed business decisions about cloud-based technologies, including EHRs;
  • Explain key components of the Affordable Care Act ; and
  • Recognize key factors impacting insurance reimbursements.

This panel based discussion is ideal for mental health and eating disorder/substance use treatment providers of all stripes:

  • Clinicians running their own practices
  • Treatment center marketers and business development representatives
  • Financial staff
  • Information technology personnel
  • Executives and managers
  • Clinical and medical titles at treatment centers 
  • Sober living home owners and operators
