We are pleased to invite you to a timely Health 2.0 Pittsburgh event,
“HIT Solutions for Coordinating Referrals and Services across Organizations.”

Meeting Date and Time

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.


QI2T Center

Centre City Tower, Suite 2600

650 Smithfield Street

Pittsburgh, PA 15222

This Health 2.0 Pittsburgh event is timely as CMS encourages primary care, social service, and behavioral health organizations to coordinate referrals and services across providers, and when our community is preparing for the implementation of managed long-term services and supports (Community HealthChoices). At the same time, many community health workers, outreach workers, navigators, and care managers in patient-centered medical homes and accountable care organizations seek to make referrals and provide navigation support seamlessly beyond the walls of medical buildings.

As a result, we are pleased to announce that this Health 2.0 event will feature nationally-recognized technology solutions to help coordinate services across settings of care: Healthify, GSIHealthCoordinator, and BluePrintHIT.

Following a networking session with drinks and a light dinner at the QI2T Center, Melonie Behan, Lynne Nelson, and Bob Bontempo from GSI Health, Mike Squires from BluePrint Healthcare IT, and Eric Conner from Healthify will demo their HIT systems.

You will see how:

· GSIHealthCoordinator integrates medical, social, and behavioral information across the community, navigates care across different entities, delivers holistic care via an individualized care plan, and supports population health through risk stratification and predictive analytics;

· BluePrintHIT Care Navigator™ coordinates care and tasks across the entire care team—both within and outside the organization; and

· Healthify recommends services based on assessments, makes referrals from healthcare providers to community-based social service agencies, verifies completed referrals, and tracks community needs.

After the demos, Bruce Block, MD, the Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative’s Chief Learning and Informatics Officer, will summarize the major game changers and pose thought-provoking questions to engage us in a lively exchange of ideas with Melonie, Mike, and Eric. We will close with another opportunity to network.

We hope you will be able to attend this event, and network with a diverse mix of technology developers, entrepreneurs, funders, healthcare providers, administrators, public health leaders, students, and theme-specific stakeholders. The intent is to share ideas among all participants about the frontier of technology in the service of health integration.

Please RSVP by Tuesday, April 12th by contacting Ben Johnston at [masked] or[masked]. Space is limited, and we will be accepting RSVPs on a first come, first serve basis. If your plans change after RSVP’ing, please let us know, so we may accommodate others.
