BOISE, Idaho July 11, 2023-- Switchboard Health and River Health have announced a strategic partnership to improve specialty care access and outcomes for River Health members. River Health will leverage Switchboard's tech-enabled care services to navigate patients to high-value specialists.
Switchboard Health's care navigation software includes a provider matching engine to identify best-fit specialists for patients in need of care. This engine supports data-driven routing to physical and virtual care settings that prioritize access, quality, and value. Switchboard’s care navigation team is using this technology to support River Health members seeking specialty care across a broad set of needs including behavioral health, dermatology, neurology, GI, and pain.
River Health provides quality virtual or in-person primary care and mental health services to a growing roster of employers. Their employees receive affordable, quality, accessible care through River Health’’s convenient care platform. Through this partnership, Switchboard now brings added support and guidance to patients who need specialty care.
“By pairing River Health’s primary and mental care health services with the Switchboard specialty care navigation, we’ll deliver comprehensive support to patients who need to see a specialist,” said Kobby Amoah, CEO and founder at River Health. “We are thrilled with our relationship with the team at Switchboard and the much-needed service they provide to our members.”
"This is a natural fit. We are excited to partner with River Health to support their mission of bringing affordable, convenient care to people across the country,” said Derek Baird, CEO and co-founder of Switchboard Health.
