Lyra Health and Welkin Health Partner to Enhance Access to Effective Behavioral Health Services for the Workforce
New collaboration will further Lyra’s efforts providing timely and personalized care for behavioral health needs
Lyra Health, a digital health company transforming access to behavioral health in the workplace, has partnered with Welkin Health, a San Francisco-based digital health company, to create an end-to-end solution that strengthens the relationship between Lyra’s care team and clients.
“Finding help for behavioral health needs can be daunting. Often people in need of care don’t know where to start looking,” says Elaine Yang, VP Operations, Lyra Health. “Our partnership with Welkin expedites our ability to find high quality and accessible behavioral health care for employers, and their employees in need. Welkin has allowed us to streamline complex workflows and provide a better experience for our clients and our care team.”
Welkin’s configurable case management platform consolidates email, text, and phone communications between patient and care provider, creating a comprehensive overview of the client while also capturing important contextual data. Customized workflows and configurable features such as prompts, health assessments, and care plans ensure interactions between clients and Lyra’s providers are personalized, informed, and immediate. It also enables Lyra’s care team to focus on clients rather than processes.
“Lyra’s work making quality behavioral health care accessible in the workplace could not be more relevant, or important,” says Chase Hensel, CEO and co-founder, Welkin Health. “Many of us spend the majority of our time at work. We’re also facing statistics that say approximately 10 million adults in the U.S. live with a serious mental illness—the demand for mental health services is growing. We’re excited to support Lyra in a way that extends the scope of their innovative work, ultimately helping individuals living with behavioral health needs improve their well-being by getting the help they need.”
