About the Harbor Performance Initiative (HPI)
The HPI was founded by Spring Harbor Hospital and Crescendo Consulting Group in 2012 with other leading behavioral health organizations that have an explicit goal to deliver excellent outcomes and increased value in behavioral health care.
These organizations work together to share insights about some of the industry’s biggest challenges. The HPI is committed to helping participating organizations improve the quality of their care and enhance their operational best practices in a rapidly changing healthcare and reimbursement environment. Participants benchmark selected data measures, share strategies to improve those measures, and actively engage one another on a breadth of strategic and tactical issues. As a result, participants gain perspective on their performance, evaluate and reﬁne current strategies, and gain insight into leading-edge thinking that will help deﬁne the industry’s future.

A Wealth of Resources
The HPI produces a series of materials and programs designed to help participating organizations connect with each other and to easily reference helpful information. Materials include the following:
- Issue briefs on key topics included in webinar learning segments, quick calls, and other activities;
- Quarterly “Learning Segment” discussions during which expert panel members and HPI participants tackle some of today’s most urgent challenges;
- Ongoing Peer-to-Peer support for a broad range of strategic and operational topics;
- A directory of key staﬀ at all participating organizations to support peer-to-peer learning; and
- Special, customized reports for individual organizations, as requested.
Participating organizations can view the resources at this page.
