Kaden’s Virtual Medication Assisted Treatment Program Set to Reduce Barriers to Treatment and Improve Patient Accessibility and Outcomes

As an industry leader in MAT excellence through its virtual services, Kaden Health’s arrival in New Jersey is good news for Horizon members.

Kaden Health, Inc. announced today that the company will begin providing virtual treatment services for Opioid Use Disorder for people living in New Jersey effective immediately.

Kaden’s Virtual Medication Assisted Treatment (vMAT) program is a fully integrated approach to treating those suffering from Opioid Use Disorder. Based on the gold standard of Medication Assisted Treatment and leveraging advanced, proprietary virtual technology, the program is more convenient, intuitive, and simple to use than traditional MAT and early evidence indicates it produces better engagement and outcomes. But beyond simply breaking down geographic and logistical barriers to entering and sustaining treatment, Kaden’s platform also integrates all aspects of the patient’s therapy and medical care, and supplies the patient with a concierge Patient Advocate available at any point along their treatment journey.

Kaden’s coordinated approach is centered, from the first visit with a medical professional through all succeeding virtual visits and therapy, on the Kaden Technology Platform. This leading-edge intuitive interface allows the patient, therapist, medical prescriber, and the advocate all to communicate and collaborate in ways that ultimately help the patient to reclaim a healthy, productive lifestyle.

“We are incredibly excited to bring the benefits of the Kaden vMAT program and platform to the people of New Jersey. The COVID-19 outbreak has highlighted the need to provide effective virtual treatment when physical proximity carries its own inherent risks,” said Dave Henderson, CEO of Kaden. “Our founding mission is to help people affected by Opioid Use Disorder, humanizing their treatment and giving them the tools to make access to treatment possible wherever they are.”

After the first visit with a prescriber, a patient can then attend all following medical and therapy appointments using any smartphone, tablet, or PC with an internet connection from the comfort of their homes or any convenient and private location.

Kaden is commencing its New Jersey launch in coordination with Horizon Healthcare Services, Inc. (Horizon), New Jersey’s largest and oldest health insurer. All Kaden-affiliated medical prescribers and therapists will be in-network for all Horizon commercial members.

Kaden’s expansion into New Jersey – the most densely populated state in the nation and among the first major hotspots for coronavirus cases in the U.S. – marks an important step for the company in providing much needed services to those working toward recovery when access to more traditional brick and mortar-based and inpatient services presents potential health risks.

“With a focus on treating the whole-person and integrated care support systems for our 3.5 million members, Horizon is methodically building a network of best-in-class organizations to provide a full range of services to help individuals receive the treatment, support and behavioral health services they need,” said Suzanne Kunis, Vice-President of Behavioral Health at Horizon. “As an industry leader in MAT excellence through its virtual services, Kaden Health’s arrival in New Jersey is good news for Horizon members.”

“We’re doing everything possible at Kaden to ensure that the effects of one epidemic don’t exacerbate the spread of another,” said Henderson.
