Agenda

Dimitrios Alexiou, FACHE
President & CEO
Hospital Association of San Diego and Imperial Counties

Welcome to members, special guests, speakers, and sponsors.

Carmela Coyle serves as the President & CEO of the California Hospital Association,
a position she has held since 2017. Representing more than 400 hospitals and health
systems throughout California, CHA is the lead advocate for California hospitals with the
state and federal government. In addition to her role with the association, Carmela serves
on the national Coalition to Protect America’s Health Care board, as chair of the board of
Californians Allied for Patient Protection, and as co-chair of Behavioral Health Action,
a coalition of more than 50 statewide organizations creating change to improve behavioral
health. She also serves on state advisory boards on behavioral health and health information exchange, the Partners in Care Foundation Board of Councilors, and the USC Leonard Schaeffer Center for Health Policy Advisory Board.

Previously, Carmela led the Maryland Hospital Association for nine years, where she
played a leading role in shaping a statewide, value-driven health care delivery system.
Prior to that, she spent 20 years with the American Hospital Association (AHA), including
11 years on AHA’s Executive Management Team, where she served as the senior vice
president of policy. Earlier in her career, she worked for the Congressional Budget Office
in Washington, D.C., advising members of Congress and their staff on the economic and
budgetary implications of legislative policy.

Behavioral health continues to be a top priority for all healthcare systems throughout the region. We have seen an increasing need for behavioral health services at all levels and for all ages since the onset of the pandemic, and often the emergency department serves as people’s first setting to try to access care. This panel will discuss behavioral health community needs and innovative models to provide services throughout the lifespan. Panelists will share information on California’s Children and Youth Behavioral Health Initiative, highlight the promising model of the Be Well Orange County Campus, and share best practices in care models to meet the growing need for geriatric psychiatric services.

The Emergency Medical Services system continues to be strained, as people often call 911 to have ambulance and fire organizations provide access to medical and behavioral health care. Given the ongoing system strain and the need to look at other models of care to redirect those who do not need emergency department level of care, this panel will explore innovative models, including nurse triage, alternate destination, and community paramedicine to divert unnecessary transports to local hospital emergency departments. Additionally, there will be an overview of statewide pre-hospital and emergency department data trends and models.
