High quality therapy available anytime, anywhere

High quality therapy available anytime, anywhere

Failure to recognize and appropriately treat behavioral health conditions significantly impacts health outcomes and costs, as individuals with behavioral health conditions use more medical resources, are more likely to be hospitalized for medical conditions, and are readmitted to the hospital more frequently.

Ieso offers evidence-based, online mental health therapy that gives individuals a choice about how and when they access treatment. Ieso’s model has been validated in a randomly controlled trial to outperform recovery rates for traditional-face-to-face therapy and has demonstrated clinical effectiveness in more than 28,000 individuals worldwide.

How Ieso works

We provide therapist-led, outpatient, online cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to members with a wide range of conditions including depression, anxiety, social phobias, PTSD, panic disorders, and OCD.

Therapists meet with patients online for scheduled visits and communicate by typing back and forth in a secure chat room on Ieso’s proprietary platform. Outside of scheduled visits, members can message their therapist, access past transcripts, and review a library of condition-specific materials and action sheets recommended by their therapist, in order to put what they’ve learned into practice.

Visits are scheduled at a time convenient to the member, including evenings and weekends, and can be privately accessed from anywhere with an internet connection, on any device.

Our unique therapist training and supervision approach, developed from monitoring performance data and what we’ve learned about what works in therapy, means we can continually improve the standard of treatment, driving up outcomes.

As the health care landscape evolves, the industry can no longer be treading water. The Ieso service is just one example of bridges that need to be built and crossed. [Our] role is to seek innovative ways to accommodate ongoing change that promises to confound health care as we know it.

Who choose Ieso

Open up an additional access point to members

Whether members are in a rural area, have transportation or scheduling concerns, or are looking for a more private way to access therapy, Ieso can help.

Ieso offers high-quality outpatient therapy to populations that were previously unreachable.

Offer members the greatest chance of recovery

The only way to measure the quality of face-to-face therapy is to measure outcomes – there’s no other way to understand if “good” therapy is being delivered behind the therapy door, or to offer therapists specific actions for improvement.

We monitor every interaction that occurs on our platform, and by combining technology and data science with our highly trained clinical supervisory team, we are helping our providers deliver therapy that really works.

Provide timely access to care

When members have the choice to use Ieso online therapy, overall wait times are reduced. In fact, our members are typically starting therapy within 6 days of registration, instead of the industry standard 3-6 weeks (which can be even higher in remote areas or those with a shortage of qualified mental health providers). Additionally, our therapists’ schedules are flexible, allowing for visits available on evenings and weekends.

Who we work with

Ieso dramatically improves access, efficiency, affordability and efficacy of mental health treatment. Member access is simple – therapy is delivered online at a time and location convenient to them, by a provider best matched to treat their disorder. Ieso improves recovery rates and lowers overall health care costs.

As an alternative to in-person outpatient therapy, Ieso removes access barriers of location, provider referrals, or a member’s ability to juggle their personal schedule with providers’ availability. Further, personal communication preferences are changing due to the rapid adoption of smartphones and text messaging (US mobile users send 561 million messages each month) and Ieso offers a convenient and private way to help individuals overcome problems and live the life they want.

Ieso can be implemented by health plans serving commercial (employer), Medicaid, Medicare, Accountable Care Organization (ACOs) or military membership; or by other organizations providing traditional or digital health services.

  • Health Plans - commercial

    While 1 in 5 adults in the US experience mental illness in any given year, only 41% receive services - in part due to accessibility issues and the stigma associated from seeking behavioral health care.

    Healthplans need an innovative solution that combines ease of access for members with evidence-based behavioral health practices; a solution that outperforms traditional face-to-face therapy in both outcomes and costs. Ieso is that solution.

    Members can self-refer or be referred by health plan care management staff.

  • Medicaid / Medicare

    Ieso dramatically improves access, efficiency and efficacy of mental health treatment for individuals with Medicare and Medicaid coverage. We help people engage in care, learn coping mechanisms, and build resiliency; in doing so, we improve recovery rates and reduce relapse.

    Ieso understands public funding, public health, and how to optimize care efficiency – using cutting-edge technology and highly individualized care – to achieve the best outcomes at the lowest cost. We have hands-on experience working with state- and government- funded programs for low income families, individuals with disabilities, and the elderly.

    Members can self-refer, be referred by Medicare/Medicaid program staff, or by community organizations.

  • Military

    Members can self-refer or be referred by military program or hospital/clinic staff.

  • Other health service organizations

    Whether you are a provider-run organization, a fellow digital health services company or a research institution we’d love to talk about how we can partner to jointly deliver convenient, high-quality mental health care services to your membership.
