Introducing Remote Health Monitoring through Athelas
At Southern Psychiatry Associates LLC , we care about your overall health. We are excited to announce we are partnering with a company called Athelas to provide you with cutting edge care. The Athelas program will provide you with tools to monitor your vitals at home (ex. blood pressure, glucose, weight), which will be reported back to your provider and used to ensure that your course of treatment is on track, and not causing any unforeseen side effects. Many psychiatric medications can affect both your physical health and your mental health, so it is important that we continue to keep an eye on your physical health even during televisits.
Athelas will ship you personal devices and train you on how to use them. Device(s) may include: blood pressure cuff, weight scale, glucose monitor or a combination of all three, as indicated by our practice. Athelas will send you a text message monthly, reminding you to test and all results will be securely sent to your provider for review. This allows us to keep an eye on your physical health, even while remote. These services are covered by insurance, and Athelas performs an eligibility check prior to enrolling.
To get started, enroll directly by following the link here: onboarding.athelas.com. You’ll be asked to confirm your information as well as your shipping address. This form is in compliance with HIPAA, and your data will be protected.
Have a great day!
