DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Recuro Health (Recuro), an integrated digital health solutions company that transitions the U.S. healthcare system from a reactive, disease-focused model to a population health, outcomes approach, today announces the integration of behavioral health services with its premier Digital Medical Home™ solution. This capability provides Recuro members in all 50 states with virtual access to comprehensive behavioral health care, from therapy and counseling to psychiatry and medication management, through secure and private online video and phone sessions - whenever and wherever care is needed.
Michael Gorton, CEO and founder of Recuro Health, says, “Now, more than ever, Americans are struggling at home and work with mental health issues that fall under the behavioral health umbrella. As stigmas around mental health are subsiding, behavioral health is becoming more accepted and accessed as part of a virtual care model, connecting patients and providers face-to-face in real-time as part of a virtual first approach to care.”
As healthcare continues to see a surge in post-COVID-19 demand for professional counseling and therapy to address residual stress, anxiety and depression, many at risk are finding it difficult and costly to access care when needed the most. This demand severely strains clinical resources and reveals a shortage of providers and other vulnerabilities of the behavioral health system. As a result, COVID-19 brought new attention to behavioral health issues, and the pandemic served as a catalyst that recognized a need for a new generation of innovative solutions that meet specific challenges and barriers to care.
Recuro understands the challenges and barriers to accessing affordable, quality mental health services. Recuro is helping bring urgently needed and flexible, convenient Virtual Behavioral Health support for a transition back to pre-pandemic life.
“We continue to envision an expanded role for telehealth in the delivery of care following the pandemic with considerable interest in how telehealth impacts behavioral health care and affects access, cost and quality,” says Gorton.
Virtual Primary Health Integrates with Virtual Behavioral Health
While the inception of telemedicine greatly expanded the convenience of remote care, Virtual Primary Care (VPC) has the capability to go even farther, delivering a relationship-centered version of personalized holistic care with remote-capable services that support a patient’s entire digital healthcare journey, all within a virtual environment.
Recuro is moving health care from a reactive, disease-focused model to one that is focused on preventative, holistic care, identifying and treating diseases early in their trajectory. VPC is a modern healthcare delivery experience tailored specifically to complex medical realities: the primary care needs of an exploding population coupled with a shortage of primary care physicians; a demand for more convenient access to care; and ever-increasing measures to reduce costs. These challenges are powerfully addressed by VPC, a beneficial evolution of telemedicine that is a true digital health solution.

Comprehensive behavioral health care teams, from therapy and counseling to psychiatry and medication management, work in close collaboration with primary care physicians to ensure treatment plans are coordinated and holistic.
