At Caregiver, Inc., Telepsychiatry Helps Texans with Dual IDD/Mental Health Diagnoses

February 6, 2019

In 2017, Randi Morgan, RN BSN and Senior Nurse Consultant at Caregiver, Inc., sought a better way to treat those with dual-diagnoses of intellectual and developmental disabilities and mental disorders. Almost half of 2800 Texans cared for by Caregiver had 9000 off-site psychiatric appointments annually. Scheduling, logistical, and experiential challenges caused stress levels and expenses to grow. Mental health outcomes often declined.

Morgan identified telepsychiatry as a solution.

Today at 15 Texas Caregiver, Inc. sites, HIPAA-compliant telepsychiatry is provided by Austin-based Psychiatric Associates of Central Texas (PACT). Their teams of licensed physician’s assistants (PAs) and nurse practitioners (NPs) are led by Frank Floca, MD, PLLC.

Caregiver, Inc. Launches Innovative In-House Behavioral Supports Program for IDD Clients

January 22, 2019

When Mark Lashley became CEO of Caregiver, Inc. in 2017, he prioritized innovation in all aspects of Caregiver’s services and processes, gathering his leadership team to ask: “What if Caregiver could improve outcomes and quality of life for our intellectually and developmentally disabled (IDD) clients and heal an historically-fragmented service delivery approach?”

One answer took shape as Caregiver’s new internal Behavioral Supports Program. Behavioral Supports are ancillary services like staff training, behavior plans, and monitoring that assure individual clients get the customized help they need to lead their best lives. The company is confident that their new program will counteract fragmented, inconsistent outside contractor services by providing Caregiver-staff-delivered personalized treatment plans designed and managed by internal teams for their own IDD clients
