By partnering with Wysa as their behavioral health provider, Community Health Network can enhance its value-based care model to drive better outcomes by making mental health resources continuous, accessible, and affordable to patients, breaking through barriers of stigma throughout communities that experience disparities of care, and providing anonymous, judgment-free care to their healthcare providers as well.
Community Health Network at a Glance
Community Health Network, established in April 2008, emerged as a beacon of transformation, replacing a Federally Qualified Health Center that had lost its funding. Starting with just one locatioen, a single provider, and three exam rooms in Alvin, Texas, this healthcare provider chose to begin small, nurturing a culture of imagination and ambition.
The company's mission, "More Quality Care," reflects its commitment to overcoming financial and social barriers while shaping healthier communities. Rooted in values like affordability, accessibility, and quality, Community Health Network is resolute in its drive to offer holistic healthcare solutions that empower individuals to balance their essential needs with maintaining their health, ultimately fostering healthier, more vibrant communities.
CHN needed an accessible behavioral health solution to align with its value-based care model.
Community Health Network (CHN) recognizes the significance of continuous, accessible, and affordable mental health care, particularly as mental health gains increasing recognition. The traditional gaps in care, where patients often have to endure waiting periods between appointments, pose a substantial challenge for individuals dealing with mental health issues. The toll taken during these waiting periods can result in emotional distress, exacerbating their conditions and delaying much-needed interventions.
Furthermore, the complex nature of measuring patient engagement and monitoring outcomes has been a persistent issue for healthcare providers. Traditional methods have often fallen short in offering the real-time support and engagement that patients with mental health concerns require, leaving them without readily available assistance during critical moments. The financial aspect of healthcare compounds these issues, as upfront payment requirements for traditional mental health services, can be a substantial barrier for individuals in crisis, preventing them from accessing timely and essential care.
Wysa offers accessible and responsive support for patients and providers, with intuitive patient monitoring and reporting.
To address these challenges, CHN has partnered with Wysa, a mental health provider offering 24/7 patient support. Wysa provides an instant connection, serving as a lifeline for individuals facing mental health concerns, ensuring emotional balance throughout their treatment journey. Moreover, Wysa offers continuous patient progress monitoring and collects essential data, including perceived well-being metrics. Its 24/7 accessibility provides a cost-effective solution, eliminating financial barriers and ensuring patients can seek help whenever needed.
CHN professionals also appreciate the convenience of Wysa's instant support in their daily lives, making it a valuable tool for managing their stress and well-being. The platform is integrated into CHN's care pathway, offering accessible and responsive support for individuals dealing with both behavioral health and traditional mental health concerns.
