Catasys leads the health care industry in improving health and reducing claims costs for health plan members with behavioral health (BH) disorders that cause or exacerbate co-existing medical conditions. OnTrak™, a 52-week intensive outpatient program, treats an overlooked population: members suffering from chronic disorders such as substance use disorder, anxiety and depression who rarely seek care. These members cost health plans millions of medical dollars primarily due to preventable ambulance usage, medical ER visits and medical inpatient admissions. Despite having a BH diagnosis, their BH spending is relatively minor or non-existent.
Catasys uses a proprietary analytics platform and predictive modeling to identify high utilizers of medical healthcare services with costs that can be significantly reduced by addressing the underlying BH disorder(s). Through proactive outreach, we engage and treat these individuals in our patient-centric program that integrates evidence-based medical interventions, psychosocial skill building and care coaching by nurses.
The end result is improved health and quality of life for the member, and a 50% reduction in claims costs to the health plan.
Catasys has contracted with leading national, regional and local health insurance companies and currently operates programs in in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin. The company continues to expand into additional states at the request of its health plan customers.
We believe that successful outcomes require a whole-person treatment philosophy, integrated behavioral/medical care, provider coordination, member skill building, and long term reinforcement.
The Catasys team comprises doctors, nurses and business professionals with extensive experience in BH and a passion for alleviating the suffering of individuals with coexisting behavioral and medical conditions. As thought leaders in health care, our staff has published books, papers and studies relating to BH and predictive modeling. Catasys is known for translating proven science into practice quickly, and its proprietary methodology in understanding and engaging members who need treatment.
