Partnership aligns leading integrated telepsychiatry services provider with the leader in system-wide telehealth solutions
RESTON, Va. & CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Avizia, powering system-wide telehealth, has announced its partnership with Regroup, a leading provider of integrated telepsychiatry services. The partnership allows Avizia to deliver Regroup’s comprehensive mental health services through its robust, system-wide telehealth platform to patients across the country.
Together, Avizia’s platform and Regroup’s behavioral health provider network give partners all of the telehealth tools, resources and support they need to conduct secure, seamless telepsychiatry consultations.
“Like Avizia, Regroup was founded on the idea that no patient should have to worry about access to high-quality healthcare, regardless of their geographic location, socio-economic status or level of need,” says Mike Baird, founder and chief executive officer of Avizia.
“Regroup is disrupting the image of mental healthcare as an exclusive service limited to therapists’ couches or hospital rooms. By helping organizations launch or enhance their behavioral health programs, Regroup is improving the lives of patients immeasurably.”
Access to high-quality mental healthcare services is a major challenge among patients in remote or underserved areas. As such, tele-behavioral health represents one of the fastest-growing areas of telemedicine. As noted by Avizia’s 2017 Closing the Telehealth Gap report, organizations that use telehealth primarily use the technology to expand access/reach (70 percent) and improve patient outcomes (55 percent).
Regroup, which closed more than $6 million in Series A funding in 2017, focuses on embedding mental healthcare professionals within patients’ existing care teams to ensure continuity of care and better patient outcomes. Regroup provides 10,000 sessions per month through its existing network of providers, addressing a major need in the market. Mental health conditions are often interlinked with other medical issues, such as diabetes and heart conditions. By getting mental healthcare to more patients, Regroup not only provides much needed treatment, but also promotes a greater standard of health and lower overall healthcare costs.
“Our mission is to innovate in the delivery of mental health services to reach entities and patients in need. This partnership with Avizia accelerates our ability to deliver on that mission,” says David Cohn, CEO, Regroup.
“Avizia’s platform infrastructure and state-of-the-art features enable telepsychiatry consultations that are seamless, secure and easily integrate with healthcare providers’ EHRs.”
Avizia enables more than 40 use cases and is the leader in system-wide telehealth. Avizia’s platform can scale from a single telehealth program administered by a small healthcare organization to a powerful system-wide virtual care delivery initiative. Avizia’s platform is interoperable with any EHR, allowing for a seamless telehealth experience across all devices and form factors.
Regroup provides integrated telepsychiatry services to health care entities and their patients across the United States. With its nationwide network of behavioral health clinicians, proven process, and virtual care platform, Regroup provides services to over 100 care sites across settings including primary care, outpatient behavioral health, tribal communities, and corrections.
