Solving Behavioral Health Service Delivery Challenges: Why You Need To Be Thinking About AI…

May 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Executive teams of behavioral health organizations are balancing several issues at the same time – improving access to care, productivity management, ensuring consumer safety, reducing administrative costs, and more. The solutions to these issues are increasingly being addressed by artificial intelligence-infused technology. Artificial intelligence (AI) in the health care field is more than chatbots doing virtual therapy. AI is now being used to speed clinical documentation, to assist in treatment planning, and to monitor consumer health.

In this webinar, we will cover how AI and other advanced technologies are giving behavioral health organizations a competitive advantage – improving performance on many levels. And, we’ll take a deep dive into using AI for medication management. Learn how your team can leverage the power of AI right now and join us for a look at what else is on the horizon as AI technology continues to advance.

Join Chief Medical Officer at DrFirst, Dr. Colin Banas, and Qualifacts subject matter experts, Kevin Schmidt, Vice President, Technology and Mary Givens, CCBHC Program Manager to explore:

1. The current uses of AI in health and human service delivery system management

2. Using AI for medication management and health care documentation – how the right system design can improve quality and efficiency

3. The power of AI for synthesizing clinical data – assisting clinicians in better decision making

4. New AI tools in the health and human service pipeline

Registration for this webinar has been provided at no charge courtesy of Qualifacts.
