Behavioral healthcare startup Concert Health is partnering with Wisconsin-based healthcare provider Froedtert Health to enhance care for pediatric, primary care and women’s health patients.
Concert Health offers behavioral health support to primary care, women’s health and pediatric providers. Utilizing a collaborative care model, Concert uses referrals, prescription data and screening across a practice’s population to find patients who may benefit from behavioral health services. The company then connects them with a behavioral care manager through a phone or video call.
Managers can counsel patients, manage medications, check symptoms and help patients set goals. Psychiatric consultants can also review information about patients who are not improving and add recommendations to a primary care provider’s medical record.
Through the partnership launched in Spring, Concert Health’s behavioral healthcare services will be used by 30 providers in Wisconsin’s Manitowoc and Sheboygan counties.
“We are excited to expand our behavioral health services to Froedtert Health and bring top-notch care to the patients they serve,” Spencer Hutchins, CEO and cofounder of Concert Health, said in a statement. “Our aim at Concert Health is to deliver high-quality integrated care by putting primary care providers at the center of a patient’s physical and behavioral health. Primary care providers are a natural resource for accessing behavioral care, and decades of research demonstrate that it’s the most effective method for whole-person care.”
THE LARGER TREND
Concert Health raised $42 million in Series B funding in 2022, one year after scoring $14 million in Series A financing.
In December, the company partnered with North Carolina-based healthcare provider Med First to integrate its behavioral health services into the provider’s primary care clinics.
Another company integrating its virtual behavioral healthcare services into a provider’s offerings is NeuroFlow. The Pennsylvania-based company announced a partnership in May with New Jersey-based Atlantic Health System to advance a collaborative care model for adult behavioral health patients at 16 accountable care organization sites.
Virtual behavioral health company Brave Health is another digital health firm forming partnerships with healthcare providers.
