GETTYSBURG, Pa. (September 18th, 2022) — On September 27th at 3:00 pm EDT, OPEN MINDS will host a webinar, Digital Bridge To Health: How One Agency Is Using Technology To Engage Community Partners Through A Digitized System Of Care, courtesy of Streamline Healthcare Solutions.

The webinar, Digital Bridge to Health: How One Agency is Using Technology to Engage Community Partners through a Digitized System of Care, highlights Mental Health Partners (MHP), experts in mental health and addiction recovery, and their drive to create a digital home and digital health community for their entire community and surroundings in and around Boulder, Colorado.

Leading with a vision to serve the three C’s—clients, colleague and community—CIO Andrew Bronson and Digital Health Manager, Kate Benedetto have begun a transformation of change, leading with technology to drive outreach and engagement with clients, strengthen communication and collaboration with other community agencies, and to digitize workflow to create efficiencies and increased satisfaction for clinicians and work colleagues.

“We are all interconnected”, says Kate Benedetto, Mental Health Partners (MHP) Manager for Digital Communities. “A digital advancement to support clients, for example a client health portal, also supports colleagues through efficiencies in scheduling and communication, and the community by allowing access and information about other community resources relevant and of interest to the client accessible through the portal. It takes all of us working hand in hand to create a healthy community and we are striving to virtually link as many hands, and therefore, people, as possible through our digital health strategy”.

“We are delighted to be the trusted technical partner of Mental Health Partners (MHP) in supporting their vision of a digitized community of care”, says Matt Chamberlain, VP of Sales, for Streamline. “Our goal is to offer products that evolve with them as they work to empower people and communities in improving life and health.”

This webinar will focus on Mental Health Partners (MHP) and how they are executing a digital health strategy focused on the three C’s – clients, colleagues and community– to maximize reach to the community, increase client and community engagement and support workforce satisfaction and retention.  What you will learn:

  • The importance of the interconnectedness of people and technology to drive health improvements for all
  • The components of a community health digital strategy
  • What technology infrastructure is needed to drive a connected health community
  • How to maximize digital reach in the community to encourage increased client engagement and participation
