TripleTree Publishes New Research on Behavioral Health

MINNEAPOLIS --(Business Wire)--

Today, TripleTree released a new research report on Behavioral Health, an assessment of why a more integrated approach is needed to address and care for some of the most costly, highest risk patients in the U.S. healthcare system.

Over the past decade, behavioral health has emerged as one of the fastest growing sectors in healthcare. National expenditures on mental health and substance abuse treatment are projected to reach $239 billion in 2014, a compound annual growth rate of over 6% since 2003. The prevalence of behaviora health disorders is staggering and more common than most understand, with approximately 26% of Americans aged 18 and older suffering from a diagnosable mental disorder. However, the more shocking metric is that less than half of these individuals receive proper treatment.


This report outlines TripleTree's views on the behavioral health landscape, including patient populations, delivery models, and funding sources; and evaluates the critical need for integrated delivery models that address the entire individual rather than a specific, standalone condition.

"Today, the behavioral healthcare market sits at an important inflection point. While the demand for mental health and substance abuse services is reaching unprecedented highs, the supply of services/providers across the behavioral health continuum is neither sufficient nor optimally aligned with the broader care continuum to drive improved outcomes at lower costs," said Chris Hoffmann, Senior Director and Chief Marketing Officer at TripleTree. "This is our most recent report in a series devoted to healthcare services and follows our Q4 2013 publication on Post-Acute Care Strategies."

The report is available for download at www.triple-tree.com.
