We partner with states and counties to transform local care systems, working with providers, individuals and community stakeholders to identify gaps and pinpoint solutions that align clinical, community and social supports that deliver highly effective individual care.
We help people access the knowledge, tools and services they need to achieve and maintain overall well-being. We emphasize engagement, bringing individuals together with their families, natural and social supports, health care providers and community resources.
Our unique clinical approach fosters successful recovery by focusing on the individual’s personal goals (not just symptoms). We pioneered the creation and reimbursement of peer support service networks to further empower people to stay engaged on their recovery journey.
We hold network providers accountable for successful outcomes. Our revolutionary performance measurement system uses comparative ratings and performance-based incentives to reward providers for increased collaboration, improved clinical results and cost-effectiveness.
We help eliminate barriers between medical, behavioral and social services by integrating new technologies and innovative supports around individual health needs. These include telepsychiatry, mobile outreach teams, and services to address social determinants of health.
