Executive Summary

Business Summary

We help parents get behavioral health care for their kids right away. By eliminating barriers to care we not only improve the lives of children, but we decrease parenting stress as well as missed work days and lost productivity.  Employers will pay us per member per month fees to provide this service for their employees and their kids.

Customer Problem

Employers spend vast sums each year to cover high rates of turnover, absenteeism, and decreased productivity that is associated with caregiver strain from having a child with behavioral health needs. For instance, a recent study indicates that such “spillover” costs for ADHD are $33-43B annually.  This does not include kids with other problems like anxiety, depression, or autism.

Product/Services:

Our self-guided educational content empowers parents to participate more effectively in their child’s care.  Evidence-based online parent management training modules improve parents’ ability to manage their children’s challenging behaviors.  Brief behavior therapy sessions as well as medication consultation via our telehealth platform are also available when a child needs a higher level of care.  A care manager will always be available to help navigate the treatment process and to provide any other coordination that may be necessary.  All providers will be Yale clinicians.

Target Market:

Medium to large size Employer-insured populations via contracts.  Individual parents via paid memberships.

Customers:

Our customers include employer-insured populations.

Business Model

We charge a per member per month fee to employers.

Competitors

Abilto, Lyra Health, and GingerIo are three emerging companies that seek to provide adult mental health services to employer insured populations but none have ventured into caring for the pediatric population.

Competitive Advantage:

Developed by a team of Yale Child Study Center experts,  including a child psychiatrist and child psychologist. We implement novel and evidence based treatments that fit into a framework of “stepped care”, using the least intensive intervention required.
