January 18, 2018 Brooklyn-based behavioural health startup Valera Health and Group Health Cooperative of Eau Claire have announced a partnership that will enhance behavioural health care management services for Group Health Cooperative members. Group Health Cooperative is a non-profit, member-owned cooperative and nationally recognized Health Maintenance Organization that provides high-quality services to over 70,000 members of its community.
Valera Health leverages analytics and mobile tools to monitor, engage, and connect patients with care teams while supporting behavioural health self-care. The company is currently working with a number of provider organizations, coupling its platform with a thorough analysis of organizational workflows to improve the wellbeing of patients struggling with or at-risk of developing mental health conditions. Using the Valera platform, Group Health’s care management team plans to enhance existing processes to better track patient progress towards goals, make connections to appropriate services, and monitor patients with depression and anxiety.
“Improving the link with our members is always valuable. When technology can ease communication with members, help them self-manage their condition, and improve outcomes, then we are truly leveraging its value, and everyone wins,” states Pete Farrow, CEO of Group Health Cooperative.
The partnership with Group Health Cooperative Eau Claire follows partnerships that Valera Health has made with Mount Auburn Cambridge Independent Practice Association (MACIPA) and Mount Auburn Hospital http://bit.ly/2ufvSVe
