Tackling The Crisis In Behavioral Health Access And Placement With Kenneth (K.C.) Johnson

Every health system leader has unprecedented executive management challenges facing their organization in the wake of the pandemic. Some of those challenges, particularly in behavioral health, are access, throughput, and placement.


Bringing to the show over 20 years of experience in healthcare operations and management to discuss the crisis we are talking with Kenneth (K.C.) Johnson, who is an accomplished business executive and entrepreneur with a proven track record of success in the healthcare industry. He currently serves as the Chief Executive Officer of HealthSource Integrated Solutions.


K.C. shares his thoughts about how the industry can tackle some of the major access and placement issues that are occurring, beginning with the emergency room paradigm down to setting up a crisis stabilization unit. He also talks to us about technology and what he thinks it can do to help eliminate redundancies that keep patients from receiving the care they need as quickly as possible.


This episode is full of practical solutions that can be applied today to alleviate the burden on providers, community stakeholders, and most importantly patients and families. Tune in and learn to optimize care orchestration.
