axialINSIGHT 3.0 sharpens the company’s focus on opioid use disorder treatment solutions to benefit health plans, providers and millions of American patients
Nashville, TN. – axialHealthcare, a national leader in pain management and medication solutions, today announced new capabilities to effectively treat opioid use disorder (OUD) with the launch of its latest operating platform, axialINSIGHT 3.0. With efforts to combat the opioid epidemic currently aimed at avoiding overprescribing, the concurrent need for access to effective OUD and behavioral health treatment has gone unaddressed. axialHealthcare’s efforts to identify and engage patients in need of treatment can help ensure appropriate pain care is available for millions of Americans and the highest quality of care is given to those suffering from OUD.
“axialHealthcare is improving collaboration between health plans, providers and patients in order to knock down the barriers patients face when trying to access safe and effective substance abuse treatment,” said Patrick J. Kennedy, axialHealthcare board member and former U.S. Representative (D-RI). “Only 20 percent of patients with a substance use disorder receive treatment of any kind. I’m confident that axialHealthcare’s new OUD capabilities will have a positive impact on those in need of treatment and the overall fight to combat this epidemic.”
Available to existing health plan clients this year, axialINSIGHT 3.0 updates all three of axialHealthcare’s pain management solutions, offering new OUD treatment options targeted toward each capability’s respective end-user: health plans, practitioners and patients.
axialNETWORK offers health plans and referring providers a directory and geo-access mapping of high-performing practitioners and facilities providing quality treatment for OUD.
axialPRACTICE equips practitioners with proprietary care pathways approved by axialHealthcare’s Scientific Advisory Board, comprised of experts in pain management and addiction, to diagnose OUD, taper opioids and provide medication-assisted treatment for patients.
axialPATIENT engages patients with OUD through a digital application that provides access to supplemental care and support resources inclusive of axialHealthcare’s clinical care management.
These solutions are further augmented by axialHealthcare’s in-house team of pharmacists who provide ongoing consultative outreach to practitioners and patients to ensure safe and effective care for patients with or at risk of suffering from OUD.
“There’s a monumental care gap in our healthcare system around treatment for opioid use disorder. We knew our team, unique alliances, research and development capabilities, and existing innovative solutions could create a comprehensive pain and opioid care solution for our partners, and we’ve accomplished that with our new platform.” said John J. Donahue, chairman and chief executive officer of axialHealthcare. “axialINSIGHT 3.0 infuses our existing clinical and technological solutions with new capabilities to create the nation’s only evidence-informed solution to identify, engage, treat and support patients with OUD, as well as the physicians who manage their care.”
