HENDERSON, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ontrak, Inc. (NASDAQ: OTRK), a leading AI-powered and telehealth-enabled health care company, today announced it had expanded its Active Outreach Pool (AOP) of eligible members for enrollment in its Wholehealth+ program to nearly 9,000. This new AOP, which is slightly higher than our original expectations, represents almost a 100% increase versus its last reported average AOP, allowing Ontrak Health’s expert Member Enrollment Specialists to reach and enroll more members in need of the company’s proven care coaching and provider solutions.
This increase is primarily the result of several factors, including:
- Ontrak Health refined its proprietary and predictive algorithms to identify additional members who are eligible for its Wholehealth+ program, which provides care for individuals with expensive chronic physical conditions and underlying unaddressed or undiagnosed behavioral health conditions.
- A prominent Medicaid plan confirmed the expansion of the Ontrak Health program to a new 18 to 20 year old cohort of members.
- A large Virginia-based health plan agreed to renew and grow the membership pool for the Ontrak Health program focused on a high acuity Commercial population.
“Our Active Outreach Pool is an important leading indicator of our performance as we typically enroll between 25-45% of our Active Outreach Pool on an annual basis and generate revenue once those members are enrolled. The doubling of the pool is an encouraging sign for our customers and their members who stand to benefit from enrolling in the Ontrak WholeHealth+ program,” said Brandon LaVerne, Ontrak Health interim CEO.
When members come into the AOP, they are then contacted by Ontrak Health’s Member Enrollment Specialists (MES) who are trained in motivational interviewing techniques and work to listen with empathy and help the members enroll in the program. Ontrak Health MES agents successfully enroll about 30% of members on the first call and another 30% after as many as six calls, demonstrating the patience and persistence required to achieve strong enrollment rates. Once enrolled, Ontrak Health delivers person-centered coaching engagement and behavioral health provider visits, as needed, that drive durable clinical outcomes and reductions of approximately 66% in inpatient hospitalizations and 32% in emergency room visits. This all adds up to nearly $12,000 in gross savings per member over two years and strong ROI for its customers.
Added Dr. Judith Feld, MD, MPH, MMM, Ontrak Health Chief Medical Officer, “we are excited to have the opportunity to reach and enroll this large increase in members. Our care coaches and provider partners are dedicated to our mission of helping to improve the health and save the lives of as many people as possible. This is another step towards fulfilling that mission.”
