Solera expands mental health network with new partners Ginger and eMindful (Fierce Healthcare):
Solera Health, a platform that links people with a curated collection of health solutions, is adding mental health companies Ginger and eMindful to its network of partners.
Ginger, a provider of on-demand virtual mental health care, and eMindful, which offers evidence-based mindfulness programs, will join Solera’s mental and behavioral health network, where an algorithm will connect patients with the programs best suited to their needs.
Previously, Solera announced a partnership with meditation and mindfulness app Headspace in June.
The inclusion of two more providers rounds out what the company considers its “MVP network,” CEO Mary Langowski told Fierce Healthcare.
“This proliferation of digital vendors is making it a lot easier for people to access these services, and addressing what is a real crisis in this country, not just among older adults but among younger adults as well who don’t want to access these systems in a traditional way,” she said.
Solera Health, the premier platform for connecting people seamlessly and easily to health solutions that work, announced its partnership with Ginger, the leader in on-demand mental healthcare, and eMindful, the leading provider of evidence-based mindfulness programs for everyday moments and chronic conditions. eMindful and Ginger join Solera’s curated Mental and Behavioral Health Network, which already included leading meditation, mindfulness, and mental training app, Headspace. Solera continues to expand its suite of whole-person health solutions to support health journeys across acuity levels and clinical personas …
“In the midst of a nationwide supply-demand crisis in mental healthcare, employers and plans are expanding their commitment to offering comprehensive, digital platforms that provide both preventative and higher-acuity care to millions of employees and members,” said Dr. Dana Udall, chief clinical officer, Ginger. “We’re thrilled to partner with Solera to bring Ginger’s high-quality, digital mental health services to their growing portfolio of employers and plans at a fraction of the cost of traditional care.”
