DURHAM, N.C., Sept. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — MindPath Care Centers, the state’s largest outpatient mental and behavioral healthcare provider, is pleased to announce that Diego Garza, M.D., Director of Telehealth at MindPath Care Centers, has been invited to be a speaker at the NC Chamber’s 2019 Health Care Conference in Durham, N.C.Friday, September 20, 2019. Dr. Garza will be participating in the “Quick Hits: Creating Value in Health Care” series of discussions at 10:45 a.m.

This year’s conference will examine value-driven healthcare and the process of improving care in North Carolina. Quality emotional and psychological care, also known as mindcare, has an important role in the health of a population. The combination of physical care and mindcare can lead to optimal health outcomes. Therefore, it is important to improve access to mindcare and promote collaboration between physical health and mindcare providers.

Dr. Garza will discuss what value-based care means in behavioral health and will provide statistics on how mindcare impacts the overall healthcare system. He will also emphasize the importance of access to mindcare and discuss how primary care physicians and behavioral health professionals can collaborate to improve care and value.

“The idea of value-based care is to improve outcomes in the patient population, and for that to happen, clinicians need to prove that their patients are actually getting better. To do that, mindcare providers must collaborate with primary-care physician populations,” says Dr. Garza. “I look forward to this year’s conference, when I will be presenting ideas on how to increase mindcare access and improve outcomes, one of which is the use of telemedicine.”

“We are very excited about this opportunity to address the importance of mindcare in value-based care,” says Jeff Williams, CEO of MindPath Care Centers. “At MindPath, we are committed to reducing the stigma of behavioral health and increasing access to mindcare to create value in healthcare. One of the ways we can accomplish this is through technology that enables easier access to mindcare.  Dr. Garza is an expert in this arena and I believe he will be invaluable to the conversation at this event.”
