2019 Warm Hand-Off Regional Summits

In March and April of 2019, the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP) and the Department of Health (DOH) will host eight regional Warm Hand-off Summits. The purpose of each summit is to bring together stakeholders from the public and private sectors across a range of disciplines to learn from experts and one another. Practical examples of successful warm hand-off tools and pathways will build on the success of last year’s summit.

The target audience for the summits includes the following as well as a host of professional organizations representing these stakeholders and the individuals who work for them:

  • Behavioral health managed care organizations (BH-MCOs);
  • Centers for Excellence (COEs);
  • Commonwealth agencies;
  • County/municipal health departments;
  • Drug and alcohol treatment facilities;
  • Emergency Medical Services (EMS) regional directors;
  • Hospitals and health systems with emergency departments;
  • Pennsylvania Coordinated Medication Assisted Treatment (PacMATs);
  • Single County Authorities (county drug and alcohol agencies); and
  • Veterans Administration Medical Centers in Pennsylvania.
