Today, Magellan Health Services Inc. (NASDAQ: MGLN) announced a strategic relationship with OneHealth ® Solutions, Inc. to provide its customers with an online and mobile platform supporting several personalized solutions for topics such as addiction, autism family support and eating disorders. The technology-enabled services include a dedicated support staff to increase engagement through personalized welcome messages, access to peer health coaches, community managers, expert discussions, and live online meetings and group chats where members can learn and interact with guest experts to drive positive behavior change. Online support is also accessible on mobile phones (Android and Apple iOS), which gives members more opportunities to benefit from real-time peer support within their busy lives.
As a result of steadily increasing social media trends, better options are needed to engage members in partnership with providers through integrated online peer and care coaching. Innovative social networking solutions will position providers to deliver immediate access to quality care, reduce side effects, and promote the attainment of new skills that enhance long-term outcomes.
“We believe peer-to-peer support is the cornerstone of empowerment and recovery providing authentic empathy, validation, and resources for those struggling with mental health issues,” said Laurie Gondek, Senior Vice President, Behavioral Health Product Innovation, Magellan Health Services. “By offering online access to peer support communities for all of our customers – EAP, employers, health plans and government entities (federal and state), Magellan can support member preferences in the form of social media and online simulations for those not likely to engage in traditional phone-based and face-to-face care services.”
Online peer support also provides Magellan the ability to further enhance its existing support for medical integration. The strategic relationship with OneHealth Solutions will evolve over time to provide support and communities for a wide range of chronic behavioral and medical conditions including, diabetes, stress reduction, asthma, obesity and general caregiver/family support beyond autism, which are available on the OneHealth platform.
