The Future of Integrated Care

Neftali Serrano, PsyD, Executive Director, Collaborative Family Healthcare Association

Want a sneak peak at the future of integrated care? Dr. Neftali Serrano, the new Executive Director of the Collaborative Family Healthcare Association, will provide a glimpse into the major upcoming features of integrated care and the ways in which the movement must organize itself to be adequately prepared. From wearables sending continuous data back to primary care homes, Behavioral Health Consultants stationed beyond primary care into specialty and emergency departments, proliferation of tele-consults, to more sophisticated population health technology tools, the future of integrated care has never been brighter. But we must be prepared!

Objectives:
  • To identify the major trends in health information technology and healthcare delivery that are likely to impact integrated care
  • To identify the workforce development challenges associated with preparing the workforce for emerging trends in integrated care
  • To contextualize current trends within the stream of the history of the integrated care movement and the recent history of developments in healthcare

 

Friday, October 20th - 8:00 to 9:45 am

Health Reform After the ACA: What's Next for the CFHA's Four Ps (Practice, Programs, Policy, and Partnerships)?

Len Nichols, Director, Center for Health Policy Research and Ethics [Bio]

This talk will describe the state of the ACA Repeal and Replace legislation in Congress as of October 19, 2017. Len Nichols will lay out implications for public and private coverage, as well as for the prospects for continued support of behavioral and primary care integration and more wholistic approaches to patient centered care in general, including increasing attention to social determinants of health. Coverage expansion or rollbacks are of first order importance, but the specifics of surviving or evolving Medicare and Medicaid reform initiatives will matter as well. So MACRA implementation decisions, ACA section 1332 waivers, and lessons learned from recent behavioral and acute integration stemming from some Medicaid expansions and CMMI State Innovation Model activities are also relevant.   

Objectives:

  • To clarify the policy and legislative landscape in Washington DC as of October 19, 2017;
  • To highlight major implications of that environment for patient centered integrated care;
  • To identify challenges and opportunities to enhance delivery of patient centered integrated care in the next 3-5 years.

 

Saturday, October 21st - 8:00 to 9:45 am

Shark Tank: Season 1, Episode 1 on Channel CFHA

Tune in to Channel CFHA for this morning plenary and first-ever episode of Shark Tank.  Clinician innovators will enter the tank to pitch proposals for integrated care in the areas of: 1) Primary Care Behavioral Health, 2) patients with complex health and social health needs, and 3) family-based interventions for children with disruptive behavior. A rigorous evaluation of each of these is sorely needed in the field of integrated care and sharks will come ready to bite!  Come find out which design elements get the biggest shark snarls or shark smiles. Learn strategies for practical but strong evaluation in real-world settings that can inform the field!

Learning Objectives

By the end of this plenary session, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the importance of placing their internal evaluation in the context of the literature before pursuing data collection.
  • Define the term “fidelity” and describe its place in the study of an established model or intervention.
  • Discuss strategies for honing project ideas to make them “doable” in real world settings.
  • Discuss the importance of using established models and methods wherever possible.
  • Be inspired to contribute to science!
