Providers like you are in high demand

Public attitudes about mental health have shifted significantly in the last decade. New regulations mandate better mental health coverage and integrated care models. More people seek mental health treatment today than ever before, while reams of research point to the connection between mental health and physical health outcomes.

Did you know . . . that there are over 167,000 psychologists in the U.S. today, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the psychology workforce will grow by 13.8% over the next 10 years– that’s nearly twice as fast as the national average for all other occupations.

Early intervention

Using our proprietary Early Intervention Pain Questionnaire (EIPQ) and FLAG-DR™ scoring algorithm (which takes just 6 minutes to administer and yields predictive analysis with 95% accuracy), we can identify cognitive, affective, psychosocial factors that predict pain escalation and prolonged disability.

Restoring quality of life

With early intervention and a cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) plan consisting of 4-8 sessions, we’re able to restore self- sufficiency, productivity and dignity.

Improved medical and claims outcomes

  • 13 percent fewer injections
  • 10 percent less imaging
  • 9 percent fewer physical therapy visits
  • 6 percent fewer surgeries
  • Significantly more likely to return to work
