Humana Inc., one of the leading health and well-being companies of the country, and Happify Health, the pioneering provider of evidence-based emotional health software solutions, declared today a partnership to deliver emotional health support to chronic heart condition sufferers via a digital intervention delivery platform. The agreement will explore how to best assist Humana members to decrease depression and anxiety through better integrated, digitally-delivered behavioral health solutions.
Delivered on the Happify Health’s digital intervention platform, the program supports heart sufferers who are prone to high comorbidity rates of depression and the potential for their health conditions to worsen if their depression goes unhandled. By merging with Happify Health, Humana starts a program that is distinctively designed to deal the emotional support requirement of chronic heart sufferers. The platform was established in collaboration between Humana and Happify Health to test the delivery of effective mental health support for Medicare sufferers with chronic conditions through behavioral health initiatives as an integrated part of their overall care. Through the program, Humana will target to improve quality results by supplying a method of care that permits for access, scale and convenience.
“Multiple researches discovered that treating heart condition patients with behavioral health solutions can make better the member’s capability to adhere to their treatment plan, improve quality of life, and support health recovery,” claimed Humana Behavioral Health’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Larry Weinstein. “To date, the challenge has been finding a scalable, engaging solution to give services. Happify Health’s software permit us to offer a broad range of our patients with unique, effective preventative care that was initially unavailable.”
“The challenges of offering behavioral health solutions have been access and engagement. Many patients don’t have opportunities for care, whether because of location, time or privacy,” said Happify President and Co-Founder Ofer Leidner. “Similarly, initial programs haven’t developed an environment which motivates sufferers to actively engage in their own care. We consider the Humana program solves for both problems for a highly susceptible population.”
The program of Humana will be integrated into Humana care management, which will use Happify Health tools to screen chronic heart condition patients. The sufferers who qualify who have signs of depression will then be enrolled into the program.
“Using technology to acquire scale is one of the most effective ways to achieve integrated care that makes better the outcomes and reduces costs,” stated Dr. Andrew Sekel, a long time behavioral health executive and Happify Health chairman. “I am excited about this initiative with Humana because it has a possibility to be a real breakthrough in the treatment of heart sufferers.”
