Gettysburg, Pa. (January 8, 2023) — On January 19, 2023, at 1 p.m. ET, OPEN MINDS Senior Associate Ken Carr will delve into The OPEN MINDS Financial Assessment Tools Suite, made available at no charge through Whole-Person Care Headquarters, during the OPEN MINDS Circle Elite Executive Roundtable Financial Tools For Assessing Financial Sustainability. Attendees will not only learn more about The OPEN MINDS Financial Assessment Tool and the usability it holds, but will also learn more about Value-Based Reimbursement readiness for acquiring payer contracts and financial readiness as it relates to growth and expanding service lines.

“In order to navigate the turbulence of the health care marketplace, it is important for organizational leadership to have a firm understanding of their company’s financial strength and key performance indicators,” said OPEN MINDS Chief Executive Officer Monica E. Oss. “Our Financial Assessment Tools Suite uses a financial strength measurement scale based on nine factors in four domains—liquidity, performance, leverage, and process efficiency. This score helps teams monitor changes in their financial strength and identifies areas where they can improve it.”
