Phase 2: 2018 Transformation Summit

Friday, April 20, 2018
10:00 am - 3:00 pm EST
Embassy Suites Dublin
5100 Upper Metro Pl. Dublin, OH 43017

The 2018 Transformation Summit builds on the site visit experience through a single-day highly interactive and participatory event where agency providers work directly with transformation subject matter experts (SMEs) and connect with agency peers to continue the conversations and planning processes. Facilitators will help guide the work for the day while participants engage in small group work and exercises specifically designed to help develop, refine, and assess current practices and offerings and move forward with their own systems change process. Morning coffee and a working lunch are provided to help fuel the conversations, discussions, and planning.

The goal of the summit is to help participants address their current questions and challenges with SMEs and their peers, continue to revise and refine their current plan(s), and conclude the day with a concrete set of action steps and tasks they can use to drive their continued efforts in systems transformation. DODD support personnel will provide continued guidance and assistance after the formal conclusion of the summit through group and individual email communications, conference calls, and webinars. Participants are strongly encouraged to continue the connections and conversations with SMEs and their peers to help build a statewide community of support for ongoing systems transformation.
