Summer Series Behavioral Health Challenges

San Diego Imperial Chapter invites you to join us for Part One of our Summer Series. We are kicking off the summer with a lunch and learn event to discuss the Behavioral Health Challenges in San Diego County.

Dr. Luke Bergmann – Behavioral Health Director will open our event speaking on what are we doing as COSD to improve access to BH. He will provide an overview of regional challenges, in terms of importance. Tabatha Lang – Chief, Quality Improvement will speak to operations, financial planning and funding streams, data and system reporting and providing treatment to Medi-Cal populations.

Following the Behavioral Health updat, Joe McDowell, Project Director with Xtend Healthcare, will speak on two healthcare reimbursement themes that have taken center stage for Medicare in 2019:

"Pay for Performance" based on "Attaining Patient Quality Outcomes"

These interconnected clinical and financial “hot topics” highlight the need for compliant processes that support various new and revised Medicare coverage and billing guidelines. Tearing down long term health system operational silos and establishing collaboration of all teams will be discussed. The session focus will be on understanding why changes continue to be hot topics, as well as practical and proven clinical and financial operational procedures to meet the challenges of 2019.
