Appriss Health Acquires OpenBeds Behavioral Health Platform
Appriss Health, provider of the most comprehensive platform for opioid stewardship and substance use disorder (SUD) in the U.S., today announced that it has acquired OpenBeds, a leading cloud-based platform that identifies, unifies, and tracks behavioral health resources. By facilitating rapid referrals with up-to-date availability of both inpatient and outpatient behavioral health services, OpenBeds improves patient access to treatment for crisis, mental health, and substance use disorder.
“We are in the midst of a public health crisis. It is widely recognized that one of the major barriers to addressing the opioid crisis is access to treatment,” said Nishi Rawat, M.D., co-founder of OpenBeds. “As a critical care provider, I often saw patients sent home after opioid overdoses rather than being connected to treatment, and patients boarded for days in the ED until they were connected to inpatient psychiatric care. That’s why I founded OpenBeds. With technology, we can do so much more to improve outcomes by quickly connecting patients to appropriate and quality treatment.”
