Ontrak, Inc. announced a new Master Services Agreement with Sentara Healthcare for the expansion of its Ontrak program for Optima Health members with behavioral health conditions that cause or exacerbate chronic health conditions. This expansion ensures that Optima Health’s Medicare and Medicaid members will have access to Ontrak services. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Ontrak integrates evidence-based psychosocial and medical interventions delivered either in-person or via telehealth, along with care coaching and in-market community care coordinators who address the social and environmental determinants of health, including loneliness. The company’s programs improve member health and deliver validated cost savings to health care payers of between 40% and 50% for enrolled members. The company’s PRE (Predict-Recommend-Engage) platform predicts people whose chronic disease will improve with behavior change, recommends effective care pathways that people are willing to follow, and engages people who are not getting the care they need. The company’s integrated, technology-enabled Ontrak programs, a critical component of the PRE platform, are designed to provide health care solutions to members with behavioral conditions that cause or exacerbate chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, coronary artery disease, COPD, and congestive heart failure, which result in high medical costs.
Optima Health, based in Virginia, is a service of Sentara Healthcare. Optima Health provides health insurance coverage to more than 560,000 members enrolled in a suite of commercial products including consumer-directed, employee-owned and employer-sponsored plans, individual health plans, employee assistance programs and plans serving Medicare and Medicaid enrollees.
