GETTYSBURG, Pa. (March 12, 2023) — OPEN MINDS and Netsmart will host a free executive web briefing, The Growth Equation: Improving Financials To Achieve Your Vision, on March 29th, at 1:00 pm ET. In this webinar, attendees will learn how efficient and simplified financial operations play a significant role in an organization’s sustainability and its ability to seize new opportunities.

Increased demands and opportunities in human services have led to growth for many provider organizations over the past few years, but only organizations who have scaled to support this growth can continue to sustain and build on it. As health care executives look toward the future, success means preparing for growth through focused attention to financial and administrative operational practices, staffing shortages, and the ever-changing funding landscape.

“Sustained financial growth does not happen by chance; it requires a solid foundation,” said Erica Gregory, Senior Vice President of RCM at Netsmart. “Once a solid foundation is established, provider organizations must then develop a growth plan that is sustainable – without overburdening their most valuable resource – clinical, operational, and financial staff.”

During this session, attendees will learn from Erica Gregory and Deanna L. Cerwin, CPA, Chief Financial Officer at Resources for Human Development, how human services organizations are:

  1. Building a strong foundation through back office best practices designed to maximize efficiency
  2. Scaling for growth through multi-state expansion and commercial mental health opportunities
  3. Understanding funding complexities (CCBHC, SAMHSA and more) and how they can impact success

Don’t miss The Growth Equation: Improving Financials To Achieve Your Vision on March 29th, at 1:00 pm ET. This webinar is available free of charge thanks to the generous sponsorship of Netsmart. Attendees must register in advance.
