December 3 – 4, 2018
NYS Council Annual Conference and Membership Meeting

Join the NYS Council for our 2018 Annual Conference and Membership Meeting. We have planned an agenda which addresses some of the most critical issues our sector faces.  This is a unique chance to learn about and discuss our challenges and opportunities with state leaders, healthcare partners, and each other.

A special feature of this year’s program includes a joint session with members of the Community Health Care Association of NYS (CHCANYS). 

The NYS Council and CHCANYS were awarded a grant to be part of the first cohort of the Delta Center State Learning and Action Collaborative.  The Collaborative will bring grantees representing community health centers and behavioral health organizations together to learn from experts and their peers with the goal of advancing value-based payment and care in the safety net.

On December 4, there will be a joint NYS Council/CHCANYS membership session that will focus on community health centers (CHC) and behavioral health (BH) collaboration models, approaches to integrated care in VBP arrangements, and networking to share lessons learned and best practices.
