Working together to support members with behavioral health, hypertension, and diabetes:
A partnership with Services for the Underserved (S:US)
At Services for the UnderServed (S:US), a nonprofit organization that provides community services for underprivileged New Yorkers, staff recognized that many of the individuals enrolled in their behavioral health programs also had comorbid physical conditions as well. The first step in getting these individuals back on the track to health was making sure they were getting the medications needed to manage their conditions.
With the goal of improving medication and care plan adherence for their behavioral health members with diabetes and hypertension, S:US partnered with Wellth. The average daily adherence for enrolled Wellth members was 91%. This is well over the 80% benchmark set for adherence, and a significant improvement over members not enrolled in the Wellth program.
