A compassionate solution that drives down costs
The personal connections we develop with your members/patients who are experiencing loneliness enable our compassionate staff to know their physical and mental health needs, SDoHs, and gaps in care, in the moment of need. We can then direct them to the most appropriate care and connect them to your organization’s resources. The result? Demonstrable ROI and lasting loyalty.
Joe is a 62-year-old man who onboarded following a behavioral health crisis event. Joe lives by himself far from family who has historically supported him. He has not been able to work due to health issues and is trying hard to get back into the workforce. He talks to his family but feels estranged from them due to the distance.
Joe reported feeling lonely and depressed and was having a great deal of difficulty finding a job. He also reported that he would like to be more social and interact more with others, but “doesn’t know how.”
Joe reported that his anxiety and depression were making it difficult to find employment. He stated that the pandemic had also made him more isolated, so he was feeling a lack of companionship along with his anxiety and depression.
ANDY* was able to speak to him several times a week to provide companionship and listen to his frustrations. ANDY also gave Joe practical information that proved to be very effective including:
- Resources to help him find employment
- Interventions to help him focus, be more patient and decrease anxiety
- Exercises to increase his ability to be social with those around him
During a Pyx Health call two months after onboarding, Joe stated, “I got the job – the outcome came out like I wanted to! I appreciate you and you are my support.” He reported a decrease in anxiety and increase in his ability to be patient.
Joe’s UCLA-3 score improved 33%, and his GAD-7 score improved from 16 to 11.
*Each Pyx Health Thrive Pathway member is assigned a dedicated Pyx Health Compassionate Support Center specialist, referred to as “ANDY” (Authentic, Nurturing, Dependable, Your Friend).
