As a result of an unprecedented healthcare epidemic with more than 27 million suffering from alcohol and drug-use disorders, and fueled by the rapid rise of overdoses and addictions related to powerful narcotics and prescription pain killers, better options are needed to engage patients in treating and managing their addictions in collaboration with their providers and peers. Use of innovative social networking solutions and services helps position addiction treatment center providers to promote the attainment of new skills, reduce negative emotional health status and social isolation, and integrate technology with treatment to advance care services.
One of the largest non-profit healthcare systems in the U.S., Memorial Hermann Health System’s Prevention and Recovery Center (PaRC) has used the OneHealth platform for more than three years to support patients in addiction recovery. PaRC uses the platform to engage with patients post-treatment by integrating aftercare and discharge activities. “OneHealth participation is statistically significant in predicting successful patient outcomes,” commented Matt Feehery, CEO, Memorial Hermann Prevention and Recovery Center. Feehery discusses how the instantaneous nature of the application is incredibly helpful for recovering addicts in this article, Giving Recovering Addicts a Digital Support System 24/7.
OneHealth’s platform is designed to positively impact emotional health and mitigate the social isolation often associated with addiction and chronic conditions. Assimilating emotional status results in higher levels of engagement across multiple conditions, leading to measurable improvements in behavioral and physical health. The co-morbidity of alcohol and drug use with other chronic medical and behavioral conditions creates a significant opportunity to impact lives and reduce the costs to the healthcare system.
The technology-enabled service includes a dedicated support staff to monitor the platform and increase engagement through personalized welcome messages and access to OneHealth coaches, community managers, expert discussions, workshops, challenges and live online meetings and group chats. Members can learn and interact with guest experts and choose from numerous content and program opportunities to impact their ability to make positive behavior change.
