GETTYSBURG, Pa. (July 19, 2020) — When a community mental health center in Alabama identified the need to address barriers to care within their community, the organization worked to close those gaps. From partnerships with local school systems to bring school-based therapy to children in school and more recently at home during the COVID-19 crisis, to partnerships with local jails and law enforcement to bring case management and mobile crisis services to justice-involved individuals, virtual technology has helped WellStone better connect its community to care.

On Thursday, July 30th at 1:00 pm ET, Jeremy Blair, chief executive officer of WellStone and AJ Peterson, vice president and general manager of interoperability at Netsmart, will present the executive web briefing, ‘Using Technology to Connect Communities to Care During COVID-19.’ The speakers will cover telehealth regulatory and funding updates, the current virtual care climate, and provide first-hand examples from WellStone’s experience providing virtual services to new and existing clients in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

By registering for this web briefing, attendees will discover how technology is a key component to initiatives that improve access to care, help individuals thrive, and empower care organizations to effectively serve complex populations.

Registration for this executive web briefing is free of charge, courtesy of Netsmart, and brought to you by OPEN MINDS. If you are unable to attend, please still register. At the end of the event, all registrants will receive a recorded copy of the executive web briefing and presentation slides. Register at:
