QUALITY Advantage Point Behavioral helps patients and practices obtain a required pre-surgical evaluation for surgery. Access and quality of care are our main priorities. We understand the unique challenges that bariatric patients face. Our experienced clinicians are available for evening and weekend appointments to accommodate busy patient schedules. Proven self-assessment tools evaluate the mindset of patients to prepare themselves for success after surgery. Following a face-to-face telehealth interview, a customized report is sent securely to the practice-within 3 to 5 days in most cases.
INNOVATION Technology helps improve the quality of nearly every aspect of modern life. Why shouldn’t it improve the quality of healthcare? Our innovative process and technology enable a convenient, secure, and cost-effective solution for this important part of the approval process. Our secure online patient portal enables patients to complete testing and schedule their personalized interview with a licensed mental health clinician.
BETTER ACCESS We accept most major forms of insurance and can pre-verify coverage to help patients understand their out-of-pocket cost prior to registering with us. Our affordable cash-pay option can be broken up into a payment plan upon request. Appointments are available seven days a week including nights and weekends. In most cases, an appointment is available within a couple of days, during which time we verify each patient’s benefits coverage by phone, and communicate any out-of-pocket expense in advance of their appointment. We understand that technology can be intimidating for many patients. If the patient has access to the internet, and a smartphone or tablet with a camera, then they can access our HIPAA-compliant secure telehealth platform to complete their interview. There’s nothing to download, no accounts to create, and no passwords to remember! For patients who benefit from extra support, our patient coordinators are available by phone or email, 7 days a week to guide them through the process and answer any questions they may have.
BETTER OUTCOMES By popular demand, we have developed a comprehensive bariatric counseling program to set patients on a path to a lifetime of weight loss success. Our program starts with identifying their unique goals. Together, we address specific behaviors that are current barriers. A road map designed with a licensed clinician can help patients stay healthy in body and mind, for years to come. Contact us right away to identify patients who would benefit from incorporating ongoing counseling as part of a holistic plan to improve behavioral habits and maximize outcomes.
Our licensed mental health clinicians have performed over 80,000 pre-surgical evaluations using telehealth technology since 2012. While telehealth had recently become popular, our extensive experience has enabled us to fine-tune the patient experience, and to be easy for practices to work with.
