Defran Systems, Inc., a leading developer of web-based, enterprise-wide case, clinical and financial management software for behavioral health and human services organizations today announced the start of their thirteenth annual National User Conference in Austin, TX. Executives, clinical staff and IT staff from Defran's nationwide customer base will attend industry best practices sessions, learn about physical and behavioral health integration, and discover new ways to take advantage of their electronic health software.

The two day event is being held at the Sheraton Austin Hotel at the Capitol. Over 200 attendees will have the chance to meet Defran staff, network with fellow Defran software users and attend one of three targeted learning session tracks. User Conference attendees come away with a deeper understanding of how to best take advantage of their integrated electronic health solution and gain keen insights into upcoming changes within the human services industry.

“I'm excited to have the opportunity to present at Defran's annual User Conference,” said Kathy Reynolds, MSW, ACSW, VP health integration and wellness promotion, National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare. “As health reform takes off, it's critical that our nation's behavioral health and social services providers understand how to get involved with health homes, accountable care organizations and other integrated care models. These new organizational frameworks, which emphasize preventative and outcomes-based care, have the potential to significantly improve the infrastructure of our entire healthcare system.”

Customers will also have the opportunity to participate in timely focus group discussions and one-on-one sessions with Defran product experts. In these sessions, customers will receive individual attention tailored to their own use of the software.

“It's no surprise attendance at our User Conference grows significantly every year," said Fran Loshin-Turso, president and CEO, Defran Systems, Inc. “We provide valuable content for attendees of all experience levels, which ensures they come away with valuable knowledge whether they're a CFO or a clinician.
