The United States spends much more on healthcare per capita than other wealthy countries. Yet overall, health results in the U.S. do not measure up with the health outcomes of its peers. Healthcare innovators and governmental and managed systems of care are adopting value-based payment and delivery reforms to solve the problem. How is Maine aligning with these national movements? What does it mean for Maine organizations and private practitioners? Most importantly, how do we do this together to create a roadmap to achieve the outcomes we value and desire.

The Alliance for Addiction and Mental Health Services and Co-Occurring Collaborative Serving Maine’s annual conference in partnership with the Behavioral Health Community Collaborative brings national speakers, representatives from other states, and Maine’s governmental and organizational leaders to explore what is in our future. and how we can begin this transformation in Maine together.

Lunch is included for all. Members of CCSME, the Alliance, and Behavioral Health Community Collaborative are invited to attend a networking breakfast from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.
