From Our Perspective
AbleTo’s mission is to improve patient outcomes by treating behavioral health issues that interfere with medical recovery. Everyone here—our senior team, our therapists and coaches, our engagement specialists—shares this common purpose: to make reliable behavior change therapy available to the those who need it, right when they need it, wherever they may be.
- AbleTo will offer a best-practice, behavior change solution that will help everyone who needs it.
- AbleTo’s behavior change therapy will be targeted, short and reliable.
- AbleTo will leverage technology to provide treatment to the home, anywhere in the U.S.
- AbleTo will implement high-quality engagement to ensure we reach people in need.
- AbleTo will use measurable, tangible results to constantly improve our solution’s quality.
- AbleTo’s approach will lower the cost-of-care and be financially self-sustaining.
That’s one reason that engagement is a core part of our solution. We have to find and encourage people to get the help they need. And when we do find and engage them, we deliver highly-targeted therapy, professionally delivered and supervised to ensure the highest quality of care.
The state of healthcare in the U. S. has changed over the past few years. The Affordable Care Act has increased visibility and support for behavioral health treatment. The technology needed to deliver therapy and coaching to the home, using a phone or secure video, is available everywhere. And the research evidence is convincing: treating behavioral health improves medical outcomes, increases work productivity and lowers overall cost.
The time is right to challenge the status quo and to make convenient, effective, behavioral health treatment available nationally. AbleTo was created to do just that.
