Registration is now closed.  Thank you for your interest in this event.  Please check back for the opening of the 2015 Regional Integrated Mental Health Conference registration.

The American Psychiatric Association in joint providership with the Indiana Psychiatric Society invites you to participate in this 2014 event held in conjunction with the 165th Indiana State Medical Association’s Annual Convention.


The passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the emergence of electronic medical records, the maintenance of certification (MOC), and the release of DSM-5 have radically impacted how psychiatrists practice.  The business of healthcare has quickly become a primary focus of psychiatrists throughout the country.  These changes mandate a change to the way psychiatrists practice and the learning curve has been extraordinary. 

This event, accredited for 5.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits, will highlight some of the many changes that have come with the passage of the ACA and attempt to explain the rationale behind them.  We will explore how these changes directly influence the practice of psychiatry. We will also explore recent changes to MOC rules implemented by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Risk management issues related to both ACA and MOC policies will be identified to help physicians understand how to work worry-free in the current medical environment.   We will also review the clinical complexity that comes with diagnosis and treatment of ADHD in adults.
