IBH Rebrands to Uprise Health and Expands Services to Address Accelerating Mental Health NeedsOctober 05, 2021
Chicago – October 5, 2021. Periscope Equity announced today that IBH, a leader in mental health services and technology, today rebranded as Uprise Health. Simultaneously, the Company announced a market-leading, enhanced digital-first mental health and wellbeing offering that reduces healthcare costs for employers and health plans. The new, multi-channel technology offerings provide powerful capabilities that are top of mind for today’s employers, and they support a full range of mental health and wellbeing solutions to keep their teams active, productive, and resilient. Uprise Health partners with employers, health plans, government agencies, and unions, providing clinically validated, self-guided mental health and wellbeing coaching, real-time booking with mental health providers, and proactive outreach to at-risk members.
With a 30-year legacy of impactful, critical services and the addition of differentiated, impactful software solutions, Uprise Health offers easy-to-use mobile and web-based tools. Starting with engaging, intrinsic coaching and wellbeing solutions, the applications seamlessly hand off to a range of supporting capabilities, including Employee Assistance, crisis management, personalized coaching, chronic condition management, and managed behavioral health.
“We recognize that the path to wellbeing is through an undeniable link between physical and mental wellbeing. We invested heavily in solutions to support that vision, with clinically-validated technology and appropriate, timely, and coordinated care to transform mental health for ourselves, our members, and our customers,” said Mike Nolte, CEO of Uprise Health. “As Uprise Health, we align our culture and strategy to treat the total person, and we seek to lift all of our stakeholders to a higher state of health and wellbeing.”
Mental health issues continue to gain attention in the United States and globally as clinicians increasingly focus on how physical and mental disorders overlap and how treatment between clinicians needs to be well-coordinated. World Mental Health Day on October 10th helps to chip away at the stigma often associated with mental health discussions.
“A staggering number of people with mental health issues also have a medical comorbidity, such as diabetes,” said Dr. Jay Spence, Clinical Psychologist and Chief Product Officer at Uprise Health. “When someone is experiencing two or more disorders or illnesses, it drastically worsens the prognosis of all present diseases. Through data science and an evidence-based framework, Uprise Health proactively identifies and reaches out to at-risk members before conditions spiral out of control with the added benefit of reducing direct (healthcare) and indirect (e.g., absenteeism) costs to employers and health plans.”
