Wellframe Partners With Thresholds to Empower Veterans to Better Self-Manage Care With Mobile Technology

Leading Community-Based Mental Health Agency Rolls Out Mobile-Enabled Platform to Veteran Populations in Order to Enhance Care Delivered and Improve Long-Term Health Outcomes

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - June 23, 2015) - Wellframe, a Boston-based company that enables health plans and healthcare providers to amplify existing care resources to improve patient engagement and better manage care, announced today that the organization is partnering with Thresholds to provide its members in the Veterans Project with Wellframe's mobile technology to help them better navigate the healthcare system and gain control over their own care. Thresholds is a leading provider of recovery services for persons with mental illnesses in the Chicago area, and delivers evidence-based practices that include homeless outreach, housing services, supported employment, peer-driven supports, substance abuse treatment, integrated physical and mental health services, and trauma-based therapies. Their veterans-specific program, the Veterans Project, is a leader in community-based social services tailored specifically for veterans facing mental health challenges.

"We want to provide our veterans with the tools they need to thrive in their own community," said Thresholds CEO Mark Ishaug. "This leads to a significantly better experience for the veterans, superior long-term outcomes and improved financial outcomes. Our aim as an organization is to engage more veterans on the path to self-empowerment and recovery -- and it has become increasingly apparent that mobile-enabled care management will be a critical tool to achieve this."

Wellframe's Intelligent Care Management Platform will enable Thresholds' case managers to gain real-time insight into veterans' day-to-day activities, informing more personalized and targeted services while enabling more frequent interactions through mobile messaging. These more meaningful interactions, combined with the valuable resources and tools available through Wellframe's mobile application, enable veteran members to overcome barriers to care, leading to long-term recovery.

"We at Wellframe deeply believe in Thresholds' mission to support veterans in the transition back to their own communities," said Jacob Sattelmair, Wellframe CEO. "Wellframe's solutions are designed to extend the reach of Threshold's case managers to support veterans towards improved recovery."
