MYnd Analytics Partners with Care Compass Network to Offer Telebehavioral Health Services
MISSION VIEJO, Calif., May 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MYnd Analytics, Inc. (NASDAQ: MYND), a behavioral health company with tools and technologies aimed at improving the delivery of mental health services through the combination of telemedicine and data analytics, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Arcadian Telepsychiatry Services LLC, has partnered with Care Compass Network (CCN), to offer telepsychiatry and teletherapy services, through Arcadian’s provider network.
CCN’s partnership with Arcadian Telepsychiatry Services LLC is a major development in promoting the adoption of telehealth solutions in upstate New York. CCN is coordinating a phased roll-out of solutions with a variety of organizations including nursing homes, primary care, pharmacy, behavioral health agencies, and visiting nurse service. The use of these systems is aimed towards increasing access to mental health services and will enable the CCN network, which spans 1/8th of New York State, to further provide high quality care across the Southern Tier and address workforce shortages in specialty providers in rural communities.
”We are excited to partner with Acardian Telepsychiatry Services and provide the agencies in our region access to telepsychiatry and teletherapy services. With a shortage in mental health providers in our region, bringing these services into our communities fills a critical gap in care for our community residents, especially those with barriers to accessing existing services,” shares Mark Ropiecki, Executive Director for Care Compass Network. “We look forward to launching these services in our region and equipping upstate New York with technology that can help our communities become more engaged and provide them with an easier way to access healthcare services.
Robert Plotkin, CEO and Founder of Arcadian, stated, “We are excited to partner with Care Compass Network to offer our telepsychiatry and teletherapy services through their network. Nursing homes, for example, face significant challenges in accessing consistent and timely psychiatric and psychological care for their resident population. There is a shortage of appropriately trained professionals, which creates serious problems for patients when trying to access mental health services. We look forward to providing patients greater access to mental health services and improving quality of patient care, which we believe will help reduce the overall costs of care.”
