Catasys Expands OnTrak-C Solution with Leading National Health Plan
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 7, 2019--Catasys, Inc. (NASDAQ:CATS) (“Catasys” or the “Company”), a leading AI and technology-enabled healthcare company, today announced that it has expanded its OnTrak-C solution with one of the nation’s leading health insurance providers. Eligible Medicaid members in Texas will now be able to participate in OnTrak for treatment of anxiety and depression, in addition to substance use disorders.
OnTrak is an integrated suite of interventions for health plan members with unaddressed behavioral conditions that worsen chronic medical comorbidities. The program includes evidence-based psychosocial and medical treatment, care coaching and support from in-market Community Care Coordinators. Catasys applies advanced data analytics and predictive modeling to identify health plan members who will benefit from the program and uniquely engages them, improving their health while delivering validated lower costs to health insurers.
Carol Murdock, Chief Commercial Officer, stated, “After successfully implementing the OnTrak program in Texas for this health plan partner over the past two years, we are pleased to expand this relationship to provide assistance to those suffering from anxiety and depression. Texas remains one of the largest states for Catasys in terms of eligible and enrolled members, and we believe that this expansion will enable us to impact a wider populace that is suffering from the impact of behavioral health issues.”
