WILMINGTON, N.C., Nov. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Alera Health, a leading name in Population Health Management and Integrated Care, has joined forces with LifeScience Technologies to pioneer a groundbreaking approach to improve behavioral health outcomes. In a winning partnership, the two organizations co-created a referral system called AleraLINKā„¢ designed to cater to the unique needs of behavioral health placement for services. 

 “Partnering with a vendor to co-create a new referral system requires engagement, commitment, and trust from both parties, not unlike any relationship,” says Colleen Russell, MSN, RN-BC, Vice President of Information Technology at Alera Health. “Vendors will gain the additional support of provider, clinical, IT, and data professionals who can assist with workflow and user adoption.

Providers will gain immediate response for customization and enhancements and have direct input in the design of a system that will improve their patients’ outcomes. It’s a win-win-win partnership where the ultimate winner is the patient.”

“The outcome of this innovative journey underscores the importance of a strong partnership between providers and vendors in the development of healthcare information systems and technology,” continues Russell. “The engagement, commitment, and trust from both parties were integral to this success, ultimately benefiting our members.
