Integrating Measurement-Based Care into your EHR: Welligent and Greenspace Health


Measurement-Based Care (MBC) adoption is rapidly expanding across North America as more organizations prioritize its implementation in order to elevate the standard of care they deliver and position themselves to succeed under value-based care payment models. National accrediting bodies like The Joint Commission are making a major push to drive MBC adoption, recognizing it as a foundational component of any high-quality and evidence-based behavioral health service.

On June 25th, Welligent, Part of the ContinuumCloud’s, Chief Strategy Officer, Andy McCraw, was joined for a live webinar by our panelists Alaina Grimm, Product Manager at ContinuumCloud, and Greenspace’s Co-founder and CEO, Jeremy Weisz.
