Provider Engagement

We strive to provide resources you need to strengthen your practice. Find information about programs and services we offer.

Integrated Care

We’re here to offer you the support and assistance necessary to drive and sustain change that ultimately enhances your patients’ experience, strengthens health outcomes, and decreases health care costs. We understand that every practice is different and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. That’s why we offer a variety of services you can choose from to start transforming your practice in the areas that matter most to you.

We can help improve current practices, change or implement workflows and provide evidence-based tools through:

  • Practice innovation
  • Education and training
  • Practice resources and supports
  • Enhanced care coordination
  • Behavioral health integration
  • Telehealth

Telehealth

We offer rapid access to virtual psychiatrists and licensed medical counselors. We can also help you set up telehealth in your practice.

  • Curbside collaborations (consults)
  • Direct patient care
  • Psychiatric evaluations
  • Diagnostic assessments
  • Gap medication management and bridging
  • Provider education and training
  • Short-term counseling
