MT. LAUREL, NJ - Array Behavioral Care is supporting more than 60 local disabled military veterans who participate in the Flyers Warriors Hockey Club by providing online mental and behavioral health care services.   

Array AtHome is providing Flyers Warriors players access to their team of licensed professional therapists and psychiatry clinicians through convenient, online video calls.  The players can also search Array’s clinician directory, select the one who best suits their needs, schedule a session, and receive care all from the comfort and privacy of their homes. Telepsychiatry has been proven to be as effective as in-person care and has allowed more and more people – including veterans – to access the behavioral health care they need, particularly during the COVID pandemic. 

“We are committed to transforming access to quality behavioral care and addressing the staggering mental health disparities among veterans and other underserved communities and populations,” stated Geoffrey Boyce, CEO of Array Behavioral Care. “We are pleased to make these services accessible to the Flyers Warriors who so bravely served our country.”    

“When the Flyers started this Warrior initiative, it was our mission to provide our disabled veterans with an opportunity to play hockey.  We started with a Learn to Skate program, and now we have grown the Warrior program into three solid hockey teams,” said Brad Marsh, a former Flyer and coach of the Warriors team.  “We thank Array for providing this opportunity to these heroes.”   

“These services from Array Behavioral Care will provide our players with much needed support,” said Bill Duffy, a 21-year Air Force Veteran and current Flyers Warriors player.   

Currently, there are not enough psychiatry clinicians in the country to meet demand, and telepsychiatry has made it easier for them to see more people in more places. In addition to increased access to specialists, telepsychiatry offers the added benefits of shorter wait times for appointments, scheduling flexibility and improved safety and convenience.  With Array AtHome, appointments are available 7 days a week, including nights and weekends, without the hassle of traffic or travel times, taking off work or sitting in waiting rooms. Many people have embraced telebehavioral health during the COVID-19 pandemic as it allows them to receive the care that they need without risk of exposure.

Originally Published in Behavioral Health Business

Telebehavioral health services have become vital amid the pandemic, with social distancing recommendations prompting behavioral health providers to take things virtual. However, telebehavioral health has been a focal point for Array Behavioral Care for more than two decades.

Founded in 1999, Mt. Laurel, New Jersey-based Array partners with health care providers and payers to deliver virtual behavioral health services to their patients and members, particularly those in underserved, remote areas.

Since then, being ahead of the curve has paid off. Today, the company formerly known as InSight Telepsychiatry bills itself as the nation’s largest provider of telepsychiatry services — and it has its sights set on even more growth in the year ahead.

Origin story, services

Array’s roots can be traced back to James Varrell, a New Jersey psychiatrist who started using video to conduct sessions with patients at his brick-and-mortar practice, the Center for Family Guidance, located across the Delaware River from Philadelphia.

Looking to expand his practice, Varrell eventually connected with Geoffrey Boyce, who was fresh out of business school.

“I was a newly-minted MBA, and he was a very busy psychiatrist looking to take this idea out to a broader audience,” Array CEO Geoffrey Boyce told Behavioral Health Business. “He hired me to write the original business plan, … which I did. He ultimately offered me the job … to slowly carve those telepsychiatry services that he was doing out of his onsite practice … into a distinct company.”

These days, Varrell serves as Array’s chief medical officer.

Array’s virtual services are supplied by a mix of full-time, part-time and contract therapists, psychiatrists and social workers.

“We see ourselves as a behavioral health care practice, first and foremost,” said Boyce. “What we focus on is employing and managing clinicians and getting them set up to serve those folks who need them most.”

Array delivers its all-virtual care through three service lines. Those include OnDemand Care, which brings one-time telepsychiatry services to patients in facilities such as emergency departments (EDs); AtHome Care, which delivers services to patients in the privacy of their homes or other places; and Scheduled Care, which assigns a single clinician or a group of clinicians to serve a regular caseload during scheduled hours at various community organizations.

Array provides care to a diverse population of patients, from those in hospitals, care homes and clinics to individuals in residential care facilities, at colleges and universities, on Native American tribal lands and at correctional facilities.

“We have multiple kinds of services and delivery mechanisms that allow us to move from the most acute point in that continuum [of a patient’s care] to the least acute,” Boyce said. “We see value in providing additional continuity and consistency in how the services are delivered as a patient moves through that continuum.”

While the digital behavioral health space has exploded as of late, Boyce said he still remembers the early days of Array, when many people were skeptical about behavioral health’s ability to be effectively delivered by virtual means.

“For the first five or six years that I worked in this space, I spent the majority of my time trying to convince folks that this was an acceptable and reliable means of delivering services,” he said.

He kept the faith by leaning into literature supporting telehealth. And then finally, people started to catch on.

“Five years or so ago, I felt a light switch go off,” Boyce recalled. “I said, ‘They get it. It just makes a lot of sense.’”

COVID-19 has supported that logic even further.

Telehealth has become critical as the pandemic has necessitated social distancing measures to reduce the spread of the virus. On top of that, telehealth has been regarded as a potentially novel way to close the workforce shortage gap in behavioral health, particularly as some cross-state restrictions have been waived due to the pandemic and calls to make such waivers permanent have grown.

“[Telehealth] is… clinically validated and accepted,” Boyce said. “Within the last year, that has… become more obvious.”

Array’s evolution, growth plan

In December 2019, the company — which was still known as InSight at that time — merged with Chicago-based Regroup Telehealth to become InSight + Regroup, forming the nation’s largest telepsychiatry provider. This January, the combined company rebranded itself as Array Behavioral Care.

“I think we were all looking for a bit of a renewal,” Boyce said. “We wanted a brand that represented the diversity of the services that we offer, the diversity of people that we serve and the clinicians that we work with. We all really quickly lobbied around the name Array.”

Since its merger, Array has hired more than 320 new clinicians. Array’s team currently provides services for individuals in over 40 states, and Boyce said the company is looking to be in all 50 by next year.

To help make it happen, Array recently scored a $24 million growth investment from Wells Fargo Strategic Capital, Health Velocity Capital and other existing investors.

“We think we’ve found some great partners that bring not just capital to the equation, but … expertise and strategic value,” Boyce said. “We’re really focused on using [the funding] to pursue new opportunities, to finetune some of our systems and platforms that we operate on and [to] ultimately get our services to as many people as possible.”

And as telehealth continues to become more popular across the behavioral health landscape, Array plans to cement its place as a pioneer — and powerhouse — in the space.

“We’re targeting more than 30% growth this year, and probably even more growth in the years after that,” he said. “It’s about putting those resources in the right places that are going to help us.”

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ-- InSight + Regroup, a recognized leader in telepsychiatry and telebehavioral health has unveiled a new name, new logo and new website as part of an extensive rebranding initiative. The organization will now be known as Array Behavioral Care, a name that highlights their unique ability to deliver modern, quality behavioral health care to settings ranging from hospitals to homes.

“The time was right to modernize, streamline and simplify our brand identity,” said Geoffrey Boyce, Chief Executive Officer.

“The name Array represents our ability to offer services across the continuum of care and the breadth of opportunities we offer to clinicians,” said David Cohn, Chief Growth Officer, who led the rebranding efforts.

“We also wanted something that expresses our focus on innovation within the behavioral space while conveying a positive, hopeful tone. Our new brand symbolizes continuous growth while representing who we are, what we do, where we’ve been and where we want to go as an organization.”

The Array clinical team started practicing telepsychiatry in 1999 when its Chief Medical Officer, Jim Varrell, MD provided the nation’s first commitment via telepsychiatry.

In December 2019, InSight Telepsychiatry and Regroup Telehealth joined forces to form the largest telepsychiatry service organization in the country under the name InSight + Regroup.

In 2020, the organization positioned itself for significant growth by conducting hundreds of thousands of telepsychiatry sessions and hiring 325 new clinicians. The team made rapid expansions to its Array AtHome service line, formerly known as Inpathy, as consumers and clinicians alike shifted to totally remote options. Array also developed creative partnerships that integrated behavioral health services into primary care practices and launched programs that allowed for hospitals and health -systems to leverage teams of telebehavioral health clinicians in order to efficiently meet COVID-related spikes in mental health demand.

For 2021, the Array team forecasts significant enhancements and scaled-growth within their three service lines as well as a major investment in the organization’s growing ‘people’ function.

“We are prioritizing programs that cement Array as the employer of choice for forward-thinking behavioral health clinicians and administrators,” says Kelly Lewis, Array’s recently appointed Chief People Officer. “The Array brand perfectly encompasses the myriad of opportunities, the supportive, mission-driven team and the commitment to inclusion that this organization values.”

This rebranding, which was supported by branding firm Addison Whitney, solidifies Array’s value proposition and positions the organization as the industry-leader in modern behavioral care.

On January 18, the nation remembers a civil rights hero, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a day named in his honor.

Dr. King was the chief spokesperson for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement which protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. MLK Day was designed to honor the activist and minister assassinated in 1968, whose accomplishments have inspired generations of Americans.

We continue to embrace and prioritize the equity, diversity, inclusion and anti-discrimination efforts that Dr. King fought for decades ago. We initiated the first phase of a diversity training last year and will be continuing to improve cultural awareness and supports for all walks of life at our organization. A team is currently putting together a report of our recent diversity survey results and creating action plans for strengthening our organization through fully embracing our ‘inclusive’ core value.

The lessons of Dr. King could not be more important to remember than this year, when strong divisions and systemic racism in our country have arisen in nothing short of shocking ways. As we reflect on last weeks’ events in Washington DC and the clear inequities that underpinned the overtaking of the Capitol and related responses, we are reminded of a Dr. King quote: ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’

We strongly condemn any violence, hate and racism displayed last week. As we look towards another potentially charged week to come, we would like to remind everyone that we all deserve to work in an environment where we are treated with dignity and respect. We implore you to extend these values as you interact with others.

Most importantly, as the behavioral health care community works tirelessly to support so many through this stressful time, we encourage each of you to take time to care for yourself.

Let’s be kind to one another.

Aetna has expanded their longstanding relationship with AtHome, an online behavioral health service, to bring care to Aetna members in Illinois, Texas and Florida. This relationship ensures members in need of behavioral and mental health treatment have access to timely, quality care.

 

Mount Lauren, NJ – Aetna, a CVS Health company, and AtHome are pleased to announce that their relationship has expanded to provide access to mental health care to additional Aetna members in Illinois, Texas and Florida. Aetna and Array have collaborated since 2016. This expansion ensures that individuals have access to convenient online psychiatry and therapy services anytime, anywhere. As of September 1, 2020, Array, a telehealth provider service can be used in-network with Aetna health insurance by residents of Illinois, Texas, Florida California, Colorado, Delaware, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

AtHome has been providing mental health care entirely virtually for the past seven years and is a covered benefit for more than 25 million individuals across the country. Not only has telebehavioral health services like AtHome proven to be an effective form of delivering care but now, due to COVID-19, it is the preferred form of care. According to the MMWR and Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, in June 2020, 40% of U.S. adults reported struggling with mental health or substance use associated with COVID-19. The same report showed that the prevalence of anxiety disorder symptoms were up approximately three times than the same prevalence in 2019 while the prevalence of depressive disorder was approximately four times higher[1].

Telebehavioral health allows payers to meet the growing mental health needs of their members who may be experiencing additional stress and anxiety caused by social isolation and the spread of COVID-19. Through AtHome, Aetna members can fit sessions into busy days, cut out any travel time and expense, skip the waiting room, reduce expensive ED visits and hospitalizations, and connect to a large network of clinicians to receive the high-quality care they deserve. An AtHome survey showed that 96% of their members prefer online to in-person care and 98% of members felt more engaged in their care.

“We are pleased to expand our long-time partnership with AtHome to offer additional options to our members and increase access to mental well-being services in even more states,” explained Dr. Hyong Un, Chief Psychiatric and Innovation Officer at Aetna Behavioral Health. “More members will be able to access mental health televideo counseling services from the safety of their home. Having easy access to providers is extremely beneficial for improving mental and emotional health.”

“Aetna recognized the rising need for mental health services. We are proud to partner with them to bring these services to their members.” said Justine Mitchell, Vice President of AtHome. “Our care navigation team will work with members to find the right behavioral health provider and support members pre and post appointments.”
