Pediatrics Faces Behavioral & Mental Health Challenges
Pediatric primary care faces growing challenges to identifying, treating, and managing behavioral health conditions — especially autism spectrum disorder.
In addition to the behavioral and mental health challenges posed by COVID-19 isolation, many children did not get routine health supervision, creating a backlog of need for screening and diagnostic assessments for children with autism-related behaviors of concern.
Many practices face downstream challenges of finding diagnostic and treatment resources in their communities once children are identified as needing help.
Elemy Is Here to Help
Elemy’s mission is to help pediatricians meet the challenges inherent in supporting their patients’ behavioral health care.
Our “Shared Care” approach makes Elemy the first autism services provider to bring child health and behavioral health professionals together to support your practice and ensure collaboration and coordination of diagnostic services, treatment planning and status of treatment.
Our Behavioral Health Hub program is designed to reduce delays in access to diagnostic and treatment services by bringing diagnostic services into the practice of primary care providers. By co-locating our services throughout your community, Elemy is able to improve access to diagnostic and therapeutic services, reduce wait times, and ensure high levels of family satisfaction.
Family Friendly, Tech-Forward, Committed to Quality
Treatment planning recognizes a child’s individuality, shares decision making with their family, and involves a diverse portfolio of approaches to meet the child’s needs.
Elemy has achieved industry-leading performance in the reduction of problem behaviors. Decreasing problem behaviors more quickly allows treatment to focus on building skills and strengths and addressing gaps in development.
We make things easy for families by combining the best of consumer and telehealth technology with high-touch, in-person, in-home care. Teams include clinicians and family navigators. Our family satisfaction scores are 3X higher than industry averages.
