Catasys, Inc. (NASDAQ: CATS) (“Catasys” or the “Company”), a leading AI and technology-enabled healthcare company, today announced that for every day in the month of May, it is sponsoring a health plan member who would otherwise not be able to participate in OnTrak, at no cost to either the member or the health plan.
“Our mission is to help improve the health and save the lives of as many people as possible,” commented Terren Peizer, Catasys Chairman and CEO. “There is no better time than Mental Health Awareness Month to further that mission by helping those in need.”
OnTrak is an integrated suite of interventions designed for health plan members with unaddressed and often unidentified behavioral conditions that worsen chronic medical comorbidities. Through the coordinated efforts of Care Coaches, psychosocial and medical providers and in-market Community Care Coordinators, members are motivated and empowered to change behavior and improve their health and their lives.
