Peggy Terhune, Ph.D, president and chief executive officer, Monarch, helped plan and is speaking this week at a national conference in New Orleans dealing with providing services to those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).
The OPEN MINDS 2022 I/DD Executive Summit: Innovations In Care Delivery For Consumers With I/DD & Complex Care Needs is billed as the “must-attend” summit event for executives at organizations serving people with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD), according to the Open Minds organization. It was designed to provide both practical and cutting-edge ideas for executives who are growing their organization despite the turbulence of the past two years. This information-packed event includes ways to innovate, integrate, and coordinate services catered to the complexities of this consumer population while laying out a clear picture of the future in I/DD services.

Throughout the three-day conference, case study presentations led by payer and provider organizations are discussing service delivery in a value-based model, care coordination options for I/DD support organizations and payers, the complexities of dual diagnoses of I/DD with behavioral health, and the intersectionality of I/DD and justice-involved individuals. Attendees are able to dialogue with presenters, ask questions about challenges and opportunities, and discuss perspectives on the future of I/DD care.

Terhune, who is also a member of the Open Minds Advisory Board, is participating in discussions about the criminal justice system and the consumer with I/DD, care coordination models for the most complex consumers with I/DD, and Managed Care for I/DD services.

The 2022 OPEN MINDS Strategy & Innovation Institute is the one executive event focused on growth – developing growth strategies and nurturing the innovations that fuel growth of health and human services. The institute brings together the thought leaders from organizations serving consumers with chronic conditions and complex support needs to share their approaches to building service lines and service systems.
