The California Association of Health Plans Seminar Series provides great depth, technical insight and information to help industry professionals improve their daily operations.

Past seminars have covered diverse topics such as medical management, biotechnology, disease management, pharmacy management, obesity programs, IT outsourcing and managed care trends.
CAHP offers health care industry vendors the outstanding opportunity to "host" a seminar planned, promoted and executed by CAHP staff. Through your sponsorship, you are provided access to our member health plans and unique networking opportunities while providing enormous educational value to our members and other health care organizations. CAHP manages the details of the meeting space, meals and registration, as well as program promotion in various local publications, our weekly CAHP Update, and mailings to our Master List of over 3,000 contacts. The premier sponsor (host) has the ability to craft the contents of the seminar, as you are the expert of your seminar.
California’s mental and behavioral health care system faces many challenges and opportunities. Nearly 1 in 6 Californians has a mental health need, and about 1 in 20 suffers from a serious mental illness that can make life difficult. Among children in California, nearly 1 in 13 suffers from mental illness. Additionally, California’s poorest areas have the highest rates of mental illness but also have the fewest mental health specialists. These factors combine to make mental health care delivery a challenge for all stakeholders. This seminar will explore the challenges of emergency and post emergency care at crowded hospitals, the state’s mental health workforce shortage, best practices to manage mental and behavioral health conditions, and other opportunities to improve our health care system.
