Dr. Michael White, Chief Clinical Offer at Valleywise Health said, “Valleywise Health continually evaluates opportunities to connect with our patients in order to meet their healthcare needs. Partnering with iTether allows us to maintain communication with our younger patients in a way that is very comfortable for them and allows us to meet them where they are.”
Valleywise Health’s First Episode Center (FEC) is a treatment center that supports individuals ages 15-25 years old who are experiencing their first psychotic episode, with the goal of providing a specialized care plan that helps patients return to normalcy and gives them the support they need to achieve full recovery. The FEC includes services such as recovery coaching, peer support, cognitive therapy, group therapy, medication treatment, and more.
The FEC supports its patients in a variety of settings, including at home and school, making iTether’s cloud-based digital care system critical to connecting patients with their providers. iTether’s platform will facilitate these connections and provide additional educational resources to help patients take greater control of their own treatment, which will contribute to a higher quality of care and likely improved outcome rates.
