The last few years have shown remarkable advancements in telehealth, healthcare technology, and innovations in patient care. Bicycle Health and Override Health have partnered in the fight against opioid use disorder (OUD) and chronic pain. This partnership could have a large impact on the healthcare information technology (IT) industry and transform patient care.
OUD and chronic pain have been a growing burden for the US for years, and the Covid-19 pandemic only made these issues worse. During the Covid-19 pandemic, patients struggled with isolation from lockdowns and access to in-person care. The need for alternatives to traditional in-person care became increasingly clear, and attempts to meet this need have been driven by new technology.
Override Health, an integrated care management platform, and Bicycle Health, a digital health platform specialising in OUD treatment, have recognised the benefits of their collaboration. They now refer their patients to each other, with OUD patients being referred for chronic pain treatment and chronic pain patients being referred for OUD treatment, as the companies say both areas have significant overlap.
During the pandemic, the healthcare IT industry experienced increased demand for patient care solutions, which elevated patient monitoring, remote consultations, and data exchange. By bridging the gap between primary care providers and specialists, Bicycle Health and Override Health are poised to take full advantage of this trend. With their new referral programme, their platforms can refer patients quickly and efficiently, ensuring that patients receive the care they need.
The impact of this partnership goes beyond the immediate benefits to patient care. The healthcare IT industry needs standardised data sharing to benefit patient outcomes. Override Health and Bicycle Health’s innovative model of patient referral encourages collaboration and data exchange among healthcare providers, which will lead to a more efficient system.
GlobalData’s most recent models show that the telehealth market’s value and volume will grow in the next few years. Partnerships such as the one between Bicycle Health and Override Health will help healthcare providers manage the increased demand for telehealth services in the future by creating a more streamlined provider-to-patient experience. This new partnership between Bicycle Health and Override Health is a milestone in chronic pain and OUD treatment, as well as a positive advance for the healthcare IT industry.
