Join us at the Putting Care at the Center Conference

Join us in sunny Sacramento, CA, September 21-23, 2022, for the seventh annual conference for the complex care field. CBCS is a proud sponsor of this important event.

The theme of this year’s event is Values and value in complex care. We know that complex care offers value to consumers, communities, providers, payers, and more. How can that value be defined, measured, and demonstrated, beyond reductions in cost and utilization? We know that our shared values of health justice and equity sustain us in doing this critical and sometimes difficult work. Can we translate these shared values into sustained financial and institutional support?

If you are attending, please stop by Booth #107 to say hello & receive a special gift that in turn helps our vulnerable homeless population. Everyone will be “buzzing” about these so don’t miss out!

Join CBCS as we present: Establishing a high utilizer program (Review of High Utilizers of Virginia implementation) in Ballroom A7 on Thursday, September 22 – 7:30 am – 8:45 am.

This will be a moderated panel discussion with members integral to the success of the HUV (High Utilizers of Virginia) program. Launched in 2021, the HUV program has demonstrated dramatic outcomes (including a robust financial ROI within months of launch), and has been embraced by enrollees and community resources.  The presentation will include audience participation in a thought-provoking dialogue on establishing an effective high utilizer program.
