he rapidly evolving health and human service market is creating both unique market opportunities and challenges for behavioral health and social service organizations. Technology will play an integral role for these organizations—both payers and service providers—to meet the challenges and capitalize on the opportunities.

How can your organization harness these technologies and build competitive advantage in the changing marketplace? For the answer to that question, join us for the 2011 Institute for Behavioral Health Informatics, a two-day executive update on emerging technological tools and their implications for leaders of organizations that pay for or deliver behavioral health services. The Institute is the leading industry-wide gathering of technology professionals and executives, public and private system executives, academic researchers, clinical professionals, policymakers, and administrators devoted to exploring the future of the application of information and information technology in the behavioral health field.

With the growing documentation of the impact of behavioral health disorders on overall consumer health and total health care costs, a focused effort to deploy technology to improve behavioral health service delivery is critical to a thriving health care system. The Institute is designed to engage participants in the process of defining the need for new technological solutions and facilitating the application of new technological developments created through academic research and privately funded technology companies into the planning of policymakers, system managers, and clinical professionals.

This year's institute will focus on four critical areas of technology deployment:

Technology improving effectiveness and efficiency
Technologies bringing health and human services to the community
Emerging treatment technologies for mental health and addictive disorders
