A Conference For All Members Of The Care Team

CFHA's annual conference is renown as the premiere annual meeting place for medical providers, behavioral health professionals, foundations, payers and other health care professionals to meet and share the latest innovations in the integration of behavioral/mental health and medicine. Our participants work in primary care, specialty medical settings, hospitals, substance abuse and mental health centers. Our presenters are our renown expert members who bring a practical and passionate, real-world perspective.

Jackie Williams-Reade, Loma Linda Univ.

"Over the years I have found that no other conference audience gets me and my family health clinical and research interests like CFHA... CFHA is a one-stop shop to connect with, learn from, and engage in the community of people that is pushing the field of collaborative family healthcare forward. This group is on a mission and it’s exciting to be on board!"

Rick Ybarra, Hogg Foundation for Mental Health

"Whether you are a graduate student, early career professional, seasoned professional, or “I really want to learn a more about this integration thing…,” the annual conference will not only meet but exceed your expectations and increase your professional skills and competencies in integration."

Jeffrey Ring, Health Management Assoc.

"This conference is electric…the people, the ideas, the networking, and the inspiration to deliver extraordinary care that embraces a whole-person, relationship-centered approach."

Deepu George, Univ. of Texas (RGV)

“I consider CFHA as my primary professional home and the annual conference is a yearly family reunion... From Integrated behavioral health to health policy and economics, I walk away each year with a sense of cutting-edge knowledge for healthcare progress. "

We Bring The Care Team Together

A Laboratory of Ideas & Friendly People To Share Them With

"We love how easy it is to mingle with the experts in the field!"

CFHA is one of the only meetings that brings the modern care team together.

If you are a physician, psychiatrist, nurse, PA, NP or other medical provider our conference provides content relevant to building and/or developing your integrated care team.

If you are a behavioral health provider you will find like-minded professionals working on integrated care projects in primary care, specialty care, community mental health, residencies and more!

If you geek out on financial sustainability, state-wide implementation stories, multi-site evaluation studies, quality measurement strategies and more, then you'll have plenty to choose from!

  • Take A Look At Our Content

    The conference will include programming in innovative areas of collaborative family healthcare, especially highlighting (though not limited to) the following:


    1) INTERPROFESSIONAL TEAMS: Helping clinicians of different disciplines work together to achieve better healthcare, such as increased medication compliance, better diabetes management, or decreased depressive symptoms following a heart attack. This year’s CFHA conference will provide a systems lens looking closely at team initiatives that demonstrate best practices, exploring how to teach teams, interprofessional education, communication, and evaluating cutting edge team development.


    2) ACROSS THE LIFESPAN: Integrated teams can effectively help patients of all ages and their family members who take on significant caregiving responsibilities. This emphasis will increase attendees’ discussions on issues prevalent within systems treating children through older adults -- from ADHD, caregiving of the disabled or elderly to end of life issues.


    3) OPIOID CRISIS & SUBSTANCE USE MANAGEMENT: We want to pay special attention to innovations that can help address the Opioid addiction epidemic. Programs that use a systemic or team-based approach are especially encouraged to apply.


    To achieve these goals, we will bring together clinician, research, administrative and policy innovators across disciplines to think creatively, exchange ideas, problem solve, and inspire change.


    More than 500 attendees are expected to attend the 2018 CFHA Conference in Rochester, New York.
