The addition of eMindful and Ginger expands Solera's comprehensive suite of leading digital health solutions focused on intensive, evidence-based interventions
PHOENIX – Dec. 1, 2021 – Solera Health, the premier platform for connecting people seamlessly and easily to health solutions that work, announced its partnership with Ginger, the leader in on-demand mental healthcare, and eMindful, the leading provider of evidence-based mindfulness programs for everyday moments and chronic conditions. eMindful and Ginger join Solera’s curated Mental and Behavioral Health Network, which already included leading meditation, mindfulness, and mental training app, Headspace. Solera continues to expand its suite of whole-person health solutions to support health journeys across acuity levels and clinical personas.
These new programs join Solera’s existing network of world-class offerings, with eMindful addressing medium-acuity level programs and Ginger covering the high-acuity end of the spectrum. Solera’s other leading offerings include Weight Management, Diabetes Prevention and Management, Tobacco Cessation, and more. Easily accessible, convenient, and paid for by the consumer’s health plan, Solera provides payers and employer partners with a digital front door to tested and proven condition management programs impacting the most prevalent and costly chronic conditions.
“For many people, access to mental and behavioral health services and solutions has been inconvenient, expensive, and often carries a stigma,” said Mary Langowski, CEO, Solera. “Our partnership with Headspace opened a door for providers and employers to offer consumer-friendly, science-backed mental and behavioral health tools, and we are excited to expand Solera’s offerings to patients with different levels of need through digital cognitive behavioral therapy providers, eMindful and Ginger.”
More than half of American adults with a mental illness - greater than 27 million people - do not receive treatment, according to a recent report from Mental Health America. A shortage of mental and behavioral health professionals, access to care, social stigma, financial hurdles, and health inequality are all barriers that prevent patients from receiving the mental health care they need. Individuals with mental and behavioral health conditions that go untreated are subject to perpetual cycles of health inequity. The odds are two to six times higher that they will experience a concurrent chronic physical condition. By partnering with Solera Health, both eMindful and Ginger have the power to meet more patients wherever they are.
Through its matching algorithm, Solera identifies the solution the person is most likely to use and benefit from. Solera’s Mental and Behavioral Health Network includes a range of solutions spanning mindfulness, general cognitive behavioral therapy, and advanced cognitive behavioral therapy. This approach enables Solera to empower payers and employers to better serve the clinical needs of their populations through a greater focus on whole-person health.
