Eleanor Health, the first addiction and mental health services provider organization designed to deliver long-term recovery outcomes and modeled on value-based care delivery and payments, officially launched with its first outpatient clinic in Mooresville, North Carolina. The opening marks the first of 10 to 15 Eleanor Health sites set to open in the next year, first in NC, and then across the country. As the company begins operations in NC, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (Blue Cross NC) is collaborating with Eleanor Health to expand access to Eleanor Health’s comprehensive treatment services.
Eleanor Health is rethinking how to treat addiction, which is now the leading cause of death in America for those under 50, by fully treating addiction as a chronic disease. Eleanor Health will focus on the complete set of clinical and non-clinical factors to manage the disease and provide both human and high-tech support. This includes comprehensive treatment, including medication assisted treatment (MAT), for addiction disorders. The Eleanor Health approach is designed to meet consumers where they are in their recovery journey, through outpatient clinics, community settings, and at home through technology and field-based teams. Uniquely, Eleanor Health is designed to be financially accountable for long-term, whole-person outcomes.
The founding team at Eleanor Health reflects a diversity of perspectives and experiences that mirrors the people Eleanor will serve. It includes Nzinga Harrison, M.D., leading national physician, chief medical officer, and co-founder and Srishti Mirchandani, vice president of growth operations and co-founder. To address the human toll taken by addiction, Eleanor Health has been working with national clinical and community experts to design treatment and has recruited a top tier team and board of directors.
Eleanor Health is an emerging national addiction treatment provider organization. The company delivers comprehensive, evidence-based, outpatient treatment for individuals with opioid and other substance use disorders. Eleanor Health has differentiated itself by its evidence-based clinical approach, value-based payment model, level of care coordination, field-based community recovery teams, supporting technology, and focus on whole-person outcomes.
