Specialty Centers of Excellence - Behavioral Health
Treating the wide range of mental health conditions and substance use disorders requires unique training and significant resources for clinicians and other healthcare professionals, especially in areas where there aren’t enough care providers to meet behavioral health needs. To support these professionals, many innovations today are aimed at developing in-home tools powered by digital technology. This evolving landscape can help address both access to care and gaps in care through virtual behavioral health resources and apps. We stand at the cutting edge of treatment modalities and platforms to extend and manage the care efficiently, including AI driven tools.
