Tridiuum Signs on with AAHCM for Telehealth Support for Patients with Behavioral Health Needs
Tridiuum, the nation's premier provider of digital behavioral health solutions, announced it has joined the Industry Relations Council (IRC) of the American Academy of Home Medicine (AAHCM). Doing so positions Tridiuum to address the urgent need to provide tele-behavioral health access to the over-65 population who are sheltering in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We view this as an opportunity to serve an important sector of the patient demographic that is facing a higher risk of complications from the COVID-19 virus, "said Tridiuum CEO Mark Redlus. "During this time of great uncertainty, many of these home-bound patients are now facing various mental health conditions, including depression and anxiety, which we know will be exacerbated by increased social isolation."
By joining the IRC, Tridiuum joins a forum to exchange ideas and insights and enhance patient care benefits available to the AAHCM's nearly 1,000 homecare physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, social workers, administrators, and other aligned professionals.
The company is moving swiftly over the next few weeks to provide telehealth access to integrate behavioral health and medical care. By layering telehealth over its progressive digital platform, Tridiuum can increase access to behavioral health services for this vulnerable population.
"We are thrilled to welcome Tridiuum as an IRC partner," said Brent Feorene, executive director, American Academy of Home Care Medicine. "Integrating behavioral healthcare into our patient interactions has never been more important as we face new and unprecedented challenges."
