Optimizing Braincare Services

by Mike Hunter

Wave Neuroscience has partnered with Arkos Health — a risk-bearing medical group delivering virtual and in-home clinical services under value-based arrangements — to increase access to vital mental health services, offering its at-home Braincare™ technologies to Medicaid beneficiaries in Arizona. The program launched last month in Maricopa, Pima, Pinal and Yuma counties, with expansion planned to other counties and states in the future.

As part of Arkos Health’s mobile behavioral health program, highly trained care teams will bring Wave Neuroscience’s Braincare assessment tools and Braincare technology directly to those who need it. By providing care in-home, the program removes barriers to entry such as transportation to a care facility and time off work to seek treatment. Patients will be using Sonal, Wave Neuroscience’s at-home device that uses personalized, non-invasive, drug-free, gentle magnetic fields to reshape brainwaves and optimize function to effectively improve health for general well-being. More than 12,000 people have seen positive results from using Wave Neuroscience’s technology in-clinic.

While many wellness organizations and solutions focus on indirect ways to improve brain health through external means (e.g., special diets, exercise regimens, etc.), Wave Neuroscience takes a direct approach utilizing brain-mapping technologies to better understand an individual’s brain function and optimize performance with targeted stimulation protocols tailored to fit their specific needs.

 In alignment with both Wave Neuroscience’s and Arkos Health’s missions, the innovative program will provide greater access to personalized healthcare, particularly to those hoping to improve their cognitive function. The collaborative initiative addresses a growing need for improvements in overall wellness and provides care where and when it is needed while mitigating costly hospital stays and ineffectual treatment plans. Members in Arkos Health care programs have a 41% reduction in hospital readmission rates and a 64% reduction in emergency department readmission rates through their “Care Anywhere” method.
