Transforming Behavioral Health

In the behavioral landscape, we’ve developed a playbook of innovative strategies that help providers transform their care systems into sustainable, income-generating models. From managing large, acute-care-based psychiatric units to developing system strategies for integrating physical, behavioral and dental health, we’ve seen it all and we know the pain points. We’re dedicated to creating proven, integrated models of care which support providers and patients in a way that brings together behavioral health, physical health and dental health to help people recover and go on to live their best life. 

Behavioral health (BH) care warrants a interdisciplinary approach that takes into account the unique needs of behavioral health patients and accounts for the fact that BH patients total cost of care increases when their BH needs are untreated. Integrating behavioral health, physical health and dental health is a care model with proven success which supports providers and patients and requires a system of care and partnering with state authorities, community groups, and increasingly willing for profit partners.

Microcompounding

Substance Use Disorder (SUD) is a growing public health emergency in this country. Many people in recovery need non-standard medication dosages to successfully battle their addiction. Our expert pharmacists compound safe, personalized medication patients need to recover and heal.

Behavioral Health Footprint Expansion

We developed an innovative partnership where federal funding, private partners and a health system established a sustainable model of supportive behavioral health which increased access, reduced the system heath spend on frequent utilizers of the emergency room and addressed a great community need.

Integrated Care

In order to develop a system of care we leveraged state, federal, philanthropic funding, and emerging technology to develop a robust system of care which reduced cost, improved patient and provider satisfaction, and developed a sustainable infrastructure for a integrated health system.
