WESTMINSTER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AxisPoint Health, a leading provider of care management services to payers and other risk-bearing entities, along with myStrength, Inc., an innovative leader in digital behavioral healthcare, today announced a partnership to provide myStrength’s mental health and wellness resources to members of health plans utilizing AxisPoint Health’s transformed CarePoint care management services.
While one in four Americans struggle with behavioral health challenges, nearly 70 percent do not receive effective care, due to cost, stigma, and access. The alliance between AxisPoint Health and myStrength will significantly increase access to behavioral healthcare resources by making available the digital resources members need to bridge the gap between therapy visits, navigate through issues, and overcome challenges.
“The vast majority of people who struggle with mental illness, unfortunately, do not receive effective care or support. So, collaborating with AxisPoint Health and extending digital behavioral healthcare to members is incredibly exciting,” said Scott Cousino, myStrength’s Co-Founder and CEO. “Integrating within AxisPoint Health’s innovative care management platform enables an integrated solution, seamless user experience, and immediate access to digital behavioral healthcare solutions.”
AxisPoint Health tapped myStrength to expand digital behavioral health services within its care managers’ operations in order to meet a growing need for member-focused tools that offer evidence-based models and self-care programs to aid in the daily management of depression, anxiety, substance use disorder, and chronic pain. Through the collaboration, members receive access to a range of individualized information, e-Learning modules and self-care applications which help bridge the gap between therapy visits. myStrength is available 24/7, is offered through a HIPAA-compliant platform, and can be accessed from any computer or mobile device.
“AxisPoint Health is committed to improving health outcomes and increasing member satisfaction, and supporting behavioral health is an important component of that,” said Dr. Ron Geraty, CEO of AxisPoint Health. “The partnership between AxisPoint Health and myStrength offers health plan members increased access to self-care tools and resources for behavioral health that can improve their emotional health and well-being.”
