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 including lack of transportation, rural areas, and the stigma associated from seeking behavioral health care. All while billions of dollars are wasted on medical and surgical treatments that don’t effectively address underlying mental health issues.
Ieso dramatically improves access, efficiency, affordability and efficacy of mental health treatment for individuals, including those with Medicare and Medicaid coverage. Ieso helps people with mental illness or substance use disorders engage in care, learn coping mechanisms, and build resiliency. In doing so, we improve recovery rates and reduce relapse.
Technology advances remove 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).
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.
